Album Notes

Best known for his Billboard Singles Chart hit (no.5) “She Blinded Me with Science” and his collaboration single “Field Work” with Ryuichi Sakamoto, while boasting a career in electronic music that dates back to the early 1980s, Thomas Dolby is finally back on the world stage.
On February 17th and 18th 2012, Dolby finally made it to Tokyo (30 years after his career started) and performed at the legendary Blue Note venue.!
Kevin Armstrong and Matthew Seligman, whoʼve been supporting member since the 80s, also joined the tour. The set list features many classic songs, and will keep the Dolbyʼs fans very happy! This set was prepared especially for Japanese audiences, making these interpretations unique to this tour.
To celebrate his first performance in the country: weʼve captured his live performance on camera and presented it in this audio/visual package that features both DVD & CD formats. The audio has been mixed by Dolby himself along with a Japanese engineer.
Incidentally: the tour was initiated by Ryuichi Sakamoto after Dolby told him (while in London) that throughout his whole career, heʼd never played in Japan.

Thank you Brian La Fountain, USA
Thank you for expressing yourself Brian La Fountain, USA. You feel the same way about music and Mr. Dolby that I do! What a gift he is in music, thought, art and performance! Priceless.

Having spent a lifetime living with Thomas Dolby being a major soundtrack to my world, I can look back to times when I would listen to his songs with my face planted between the speakers and floating away with goosebumps and shivers of sheer delight and almost disbelief that a man can create such gorgeous, ethereal soundscapes. Nothing ever since has caused these feelings when it came to music. Eventually meeting Thomas during his Sole Inhabitant Tour, touching the very hands that made those melodies and speaking with this other-worldly creature for the first time, it was so overwhelming, I almost don't remember the experience because it was too unbelievable. He played versions of songs that are a part of the fabric of who I am and they had such a new, shiny feel and I was again swept into no-man's land emotionally. It caused me to sit there in front of him as he played to an awed crowd... and I wept against my will. This album again takes his alluring songs to whole new levels of beautiful and mysterious. I can't believe I can still feel this level of excitement after all these years. Thomas Dolby proves that life and music can just keep getting better and better and better and better........
