Damage is a live recording of a 1993 tour by David Sylvian and Robert Fripp. It is taken from the final show of the tour.

This album, originally mixed by Fripp, was first released in 1994 as a limited edition box set: a 24-carat gold CD and 32-page colour booklet in a jewel box inside a cardboard slipcase. It was remixed by David Sylvian and re-released in standard jewel case packaging with different artwork (see article illustration) in 2001. The song "Darshan: The Road to Graceland" was replaced by "Jean the Birdman" on the reissued version and the track order was slightly changed.

For several years this was the only place one could find the song "Blinding Light of Heaven." Since then the studio version has been released, on the limited edition third disc of Sylvian's compilation Everything and Nothing.
