16.04.85 Tokyo, Japan, intro to ´Glory Days´
´´Let me catch my breath, alright….now, this is a song about growing old….anybody growing old out there ? (cheers) that´s right, everybody is, damn….this is a song about old times…. about how when you go out into a bar on Friday night….somebody is always coming up to you and saying ´Remember me ? We went to high school together….man, that was a great time´…but I always think back to high school and I remember that I hated high school….I didn´t like no high school….I mean I didn´t dig no high school….I´m still glad when showtime comes around, I get to play the guitar instead of doing my homework….anyway….this is a song about how all things must pass….how time´s winged chariot chases up to us all….and how in the end it ain´t nothing but….glory days….

16.04.85 Tokyo, Japan, intro to ‘My Hometown’
´´Oh, this is, uh….our last night in Tokyo here….and I just would like to say that we´ve had a …great stay here in your city, it´s been very beautiful….and uh….the people have been very ….very kind and nice to us….and so I guess I´d like to, uh…..this is a song I guess about my ….my own hometown back in the States….and uh…..I remember when I was growing up….I couldn´t stand living there, it was a small town and…..and I used to think that once I got away from it, I´d never….I´d never really miss it again and I wouldn´t feel lonely for my family or my friends….and I wouldn´t want to look back on the things that happened over there….but, uh, as I got older, I used to come home off the road and I´d get in my car and I´d drive back down the old streets that I grew up on….I´d go to try and see what…some of my friends´lives had turned out (?)…and uh….I guess this is about sometimes we don´t appreciate the places that we live….and so I guess what I´d like to say is….(says something in Japanese) …from my hometown to your hometown….”
