A few short months after the show, came this sweet TMR release. It's a great sounding recording that well represents the first week of the 2009 tour. This is Bob's first performance in the newly constructed arena. The Label has been experimenting a bit with OBI strips. As far as we know, this is a first in the boot CD world. Obi is a Japanese word. It's the sash that ties a kimono. When the western world  first started seeing these strips on LP albums in the middle of the previous century, they referred to them by this misnomer. The Japanese market picked up on the word and began using it as well. These paper ribbons were originally issued with Japanese pressings of foreign artists. They allowed for a variety of extra information to be included in phonetic Japanese (katakana) and Kanji, without changing the cover. The biggest advantage they have for CD packages is to allow the spine to be presented in katakana for the retailer's shelf. The Japanese throw them away just as the West throws away shrink wrap stickers................... (Cond.)

Westerners tend to save obis, however, as a collectible part of the package. As they are merely wrapped around the outside of the jewel case, they become difficult to store alongside the CD. Western collectors of legitimate Japanese pressed discs usually leave the package unopened. As the boot market has a different criteria and market base, the obi will not add value to a boot release, but it is a neat little addition to a Label that needed the extra boost to help its releases stand out.
