Just a Beat Show (ジャスト・ア・ビート・ショー?) is an omnibus album of a live show in Shibuya's Yaneura on March 3, 1986, in Japan. It was released in May of the same year. The performers were Lä-Ppisch, The London Times, The Blue Hearts and The Jumps.

Background[edit]

The CD was originally released in analog format in May 1986 and only about 2,000 copies were sold throughout 1986 and 1987. However, as CDs became more popular, the album was re-released on CD on April 25, 1993. The disc is currently out of production.

Kikujirō Shima (島キクジロウ Shima Kikujirō), the lead vocalist for The Jumps, originally had the idea for the recording and, in December 1985, brought together The Jumps, The London Times, The Blue Hearts and the Hormones for a recording at a live show. There were problems with the recording equipment, however, and the recording failed. By the time they were able to bring the bands back together for a second recording, the Hormones had broken up and had to quickly be replaced by Lä-Ppisch.
