It was released six months after the band had broken up, and became their highest charting album in the UK, peaking at number 5. It has been certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry for sales in excess of 100,000 copies. The live tracks on the double-album were taken from the band's performances at the Hammersmith Odeon in November 1982, during their final live concert tour. Since guitarist Rob. Two of the instrumentals, Oil on Canvas itself and Temple of Dawn, are brief, gentle pieces by Sylvian and Barbieri respectively. Voices Raised in Welcome, Hands Held in Prayer is a more involving effort, combining a quiet, gamelan-inspired rhythm with found-sound samples from what appears to be a religious ceremony. Pop 1983.

Oil on Canvas is a great album because it demonstrates how good these four artists were as a group, and as individual musicians. The music they produced was original, distinctive, and most of all, it was theirs. In other words, no one sounded like Japan then or now. Oil on Canvas is the first, last and only full-length live album by British new wave band Japan. Originally recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London in November 1982, this double LP was released as a farewell gesture. Its mostly comprised of tracks from their later albums Gentlemen Take Polaroids and Tin Drum, with one entry from 1979s Quiet Life, but it also contains three never-before-heard instrumentals, providing short interludes among the live takes. In 2003, Oil on Canvas was remastered alongside Tin Drum and Gentlemen Take Polaroids, as well as David Sylvians solo material. Oil on Canvas Q&A. Japan - Oil On Canvas 1984.

Reviews of the Japan - Oil On Canvas (1):
My copy has the exact same packaging as this edition Japan - Oil On Canvas, BUT the CD inside is different. The CD is the same as Japan - Oil On Canvas (Matrix / Runout: CDVD-2513 33 A1, Matrix / Runout: MASTERED BY DADC AUSTRIA, and it has all 15 tracks too). I know I bought it like this in the early 90s. Could it be possible that (left over) CD covers from this version were filled with the 15 track CD, once that became available? Or is mine a new, separate edition all together?
Thx for the feedback. Maybe I should make a new entry then.
I have this one too. I bought it at a flea market.
