Live in Japan is a 1973 rock album by the supergroup power trio Beck, Bogert & Appice. The album although initially called Beck, Bogert & Appice Live was only issued in Japan and is also known as Live in Japan. The album is generally considered rare due to the fact of being only released in limited numbers in Japan. Live in Japan was the last released album by Beck, Bogert & Appice and their only live album. Within months of the album's release the band would dissolve after Jeff Beck suddenly decided to leave the band.

On this album, Beck can be heard heavily using a Heil Talkbox, two years before the release of Peter Frampton's landmark album, Frampton Comes Alive. The album also contains renditions of songs originally recorded by the Jeff Beck Group, "Plynth", "Going Down," and "Morning Dew" and one Yardbirds number "Jeff's Boogie" .
