General Terra Rosa Thread
That's the only Terra Rosa release I don't have. :-\

Not that it matters (in that we all know that mainstream appeal is rarely in proportion to talent in the music industry) but does anyone know what size of venue Terra Rosa were playing at their peak?

Judging by the crowd on the Live...Final Class Day VHS, which was filmed in 1991, it appears to be a few hundred in the crowd. Granted, I'm not great at judging those kinds of things, but it was neither super tiny nor really huge.

Aha - nice one. So the Tokyo Rokumeikan has a capacity of 200, the Umeda Banana Hall (their hometown turf) has a capacity of 500 (that VHS was filmed at both).

Rockmaykan has a capacity of 250. Do with that information what you will.. Tongue

Edit: I was ninja'd. I believe that the Meguro location has 250?

Well, that’s what my search came up with but I have no way of knowing which one's right - and I guess I was just after a ballpark number anyway.

See, I kind of thought that perhaps Terra Rosa were pulling bigger numbers at their peak (again not that that makes a difference to their quality as a band), and also perhaps you had younger kids going to the shows back then, but perhaps not.

Besides the amazing music, Terra Rosa was just another small band that had limited success with a major label's backing.

The truth is that only bands such as Anthem, X Japan, Loudness, Seikima II, Show-Ya, Bow Wow, Vow Wow, Earthshaker, and Dead End were the bigger stars of the scene.

I'm glad they did fairly well at least, despite never making it really big (they deserved to though, without question). So many of their members are legends within the Japanese metal scene just off of performing reputation and talent and they were even friends with a large chunk of the commercially dominant ones, playing shows with several.

That aside, I'd trade Terra Rosa's inexplicably minimalized success with, say, 44 Magnum's hot (commercially) career start in a heartbeat. Tongue

I see that "Hi no Naka ni Kage" was also a separate VHS release, according to this listing. Probably reused on Bootleg Clips.

I wonder if their other PVs had limited VHS runs too outside of that Bootleg Clips tape.
