Anthony Reynolds

Japan - A Foreign Place (The Biography 1974-1984) (soft back pre-order)


2016 softback edition of A Foreign Place, Anthony Reynolds' critically acclaimed and comprehensive biography of Japan.

Chronicling the rise and fall of one of the 1980s most respected and beloved bands, the book lifts the veil on the creative processes and personal histories of a fascinating group of introspective musicians whose activities have frequently been shrouded in secrecy.

Written with the full approval and co-operation of Richard Barbieri, Steve Jansen and Rob Dean, the book contains many unseen period photographs, as well as first-hand accounts of the band and its music from friends, music industry associates and musical collaborators.

The first publishing venture for Burning Shed, A Foreign Place was originally presented as a deluxe hardback edition - designed by Carl Glover - and sold out within two months. The softback edition is almost identical, except for the cover.

212 pages long, 210 x 210mm, containing approximately 260 pictures (many unseen before the deluxe edition was published).

'This is the big book the defiant dons of delicacy deserve.' - Prog magazine
