Yes. Tony was wearing that hat full time in the 86-88 period.

There's also some MSX-related superimposed text in the video (like MEGAROM).

It was the most exciting band of all times.

On the front sleeve: "Bouai he no sanbi" & "Minasama no yume wo kanaemasu".

Kinda "A praise to violent love" and "We make your dreams come true" (we
grant everybody's dreams).

The inner sleeve's just a Gundam instruction booklet backdrop with
superimposed band snapshots & lyrics and it describes a standard Gundam

Kiss you lot.
