    This album by Californian psychedelic rock band Rain Parade was recorded live at Shibuya Hall, Tokyo, Dec. 16, 1984. Originally available only as a Japanese import, this is the cover of the US re-release on Restless Records.

    The band name is rendered in tightly spaced and partially overlapping caps from Carlton, Letraset’s 1970s revival of Ehmcke-Antiqua. Originally issued by Flinsch in 1909, the foundry version was sold by Stephenson Blake in England under the name Carlton. The A used here is included in ITC’s digital version as a stylistic alternate.
