That TKB boxset sold out before release in 2001, so it's the most expensive thing by far. I'd mainly want it for The Golden Bat (1971) disc and the miscellaneous recordings disc.

When I was looking at Itsuro Shimoda (TKB member and writer from the early period) I did find this: http://www.t-chest.jp/shimoda/album/kiminouta.html (https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00092QSY6)

A rare CD released in 2005 that features recordings of early Tokyo Kid Brothers including 6 recordings from The Golden Bat and 5 recordings from The City.

I just bought a copy. The most I've ever spent on a CD. I'll likely share it here when it arrives in a few weeks (if shipping is successful).

Itsuro Shimoda is really good as a solo artist as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS6qi_TCEQM&list=PLuGAvXrEzoIkIntwAmCFh2-9nDk0lvVef

That looks interesting. Was The City also released as an album? I had never heard about that play before this thread.

The early TKP I know of are: the Love and Banana ep, Golden Bat, Throw away the Books, Golden Bat Returns, Story of Six Dogs (English and Japanese versions), and The Moon is East The Sun is West. Was there anything else from the troupe's classic period?
