The gatefold cover (40AP 308~9) includes many color photographs of Percy Faith. The insert includes B&W photos and notes in Japanese. My copy of the insert includes a Percy Faith timeline (1908-1976), prepared after Percy Faith's death.

All the copies of the 2-Lp set I've seen show a 1977 copyright date on the cover and on the record label for songs not included in "In Concert," leading me to believe that this was a posthumous release and tribute to Percy Faith.

Liner notes

In Percy's handwriting:

The orchestra and I enjoyed the experience of recording this concert "live" at Kosei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo on May 19, 1974.
