It has been certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry for sales in excess of 100,000 copies.

Oil On Canvas is a live album by the English band Japan, released in June 1983, six months after the band had broken up. It became their highest charting album in the UK, peaking at number 5. The live tracks on the double-album were taken from the band's performances at the Hammersmith Odeon in November 1982, during their final live concert tour. With guitarist Rob Dean having left the band in 1981, Japanese session musician Masami Tsuchiya was added to the line-up on guitar and additional keyboards

The final Japan release was sold and marketed as a live album, though actually it's a bit of a catchall - it is indeed mostly from concerts, but also includes a variety of studio instrumentals and a re-recorded version of "Nightporter" mixed in to sound like it's part of the show. The various re-releases of the albums over the years confused matters further, with re-sequencings, the excision of cuts, and more adding to general confusion about the release (not to mention the fact that some reissues completely omitted where the shows were recorded anyway!).

Oil on Canvas" is a live album release by UK art pop act Japan. The album was released through Virgin Records in June 1983. The original version was released as a double vinyl version.
