Hong Kong (album)

Hong Kong is a live album by Jean Michel Jarre, and released in 1994 on Disques Dreyfus, licensed to Polydor. Even though the album is called Hong Kong and has pictures of the event on its booklet, most of the tracks are from the Europe in Concert venues[2], except for "Souvenir of China" which is a special mix consisting of the Paris la Defense version and the actual track played in Hong Kong. Also, "Fishing Junks at Sunset" was recorded from the Hong Kong concert rehearsals. Some of the tracks already featured on the VHS release of the Barcelona concert the year before.

The running order is incorrect from both the Hong Kong show and the concerts in Europe from which the recordings were taken. For example Band in the Rain was actually always performed before Oxygene 4, not Rendez-Vous 4 as on the CD. The intro of Oxygene 4 can be heard in the background as the track fades out into Rendez-Vous 4 on the CD.

The non-album track ‘Digi Sequencer’ is included on the CD, having been performed for the first time during the Europe concerts. This is the only official audio release of the track to date.

A full camcorder audience recording of the actual Hong Kong concert is available to view on YouTube
