JAPAN ASSEMBLAGE Hansa German LP VG+/VG. As its title indicates, this � album � is made from different sources and assembled together. While there are some singles-only tracks, others come from albums, the whole thing being a bit of a compilation that was released in 81, a bit as a new album (if I understood well).

Assemblage collects recordings from the band's early career (1977–1980) and Hansa Records re-released no fewer than six singles from Assemblage and Japan's back catalogue between 1981 and 1983. The compilation reached No. 26 in the UK and spent 46 weeks on the album chart, being certified Gold by the .

Released September 1981. Assemblage Tracklist. 1. Adolescent Sex Lyrics. Assemblage is a compilation album released by Hansa records in 1981 featuring hit singles, B-sides and live favourites from 1977-80. By 1981 Japan had switched labels to join Virgin, but Virgin and Hansa still alternated single releases after this move. The versions of All Tomorrow’s Parties and European Son which appear here were unique to this album at the time of its release. The album was a success, becoming one of Japan’s most commercially successful albums to date.

The 1981 compilation Assemblage gives a skewed, incomplete picture of Japan's early career; this is not necessarily a bad thing, as Japan's early career frankly wasn't very good, and it certainly had little to do with the mature, studied art-pop of their later albums.

Album · 1981 · 14 Songs. It finishes on three Giorgio Moroder–helmed sides: a remix of European Son and two versions (one radio, one 12-inch) of the big-in-Japan disco-ball Life in Tokyo. It’s fun to hear how in just two years (1978 and 1979) youngster Mick Karn crafted a style that altered how a whole generation of bassists approached their instruments and how singer David Sylvian dropped personae (from decadent glamster to disco glamster to urbane crooner) like prom dresses.
