Kaizoku-Ban is a live mini-album or EP by Accept. It was recorded in Nagoya, Japan, in September 19, 1985, and released on vinyl the same year. It was later re-released as Live in Japan in 1992. Though this is an official release, the title (海賊版) translates as "Pirate Edition" or "Bootleg". The cassette tape version of this release had the unusual[citation needed] feature of having all six songs recorded on both sides. Because of the duration of the six songs it was feasible to release it this way.[2]
