All Tomorrow's Parties is a patchwork effort that falls squarely into the third category; the bulk of the album is drawn from an April 11, 1986, concert in Tokyo that has already seen release on the imaginatively titled Live in Tokyo. As such things go, it captures Nico in strong form; her voice is in good shape, her performance is committed, and her band sounds simpatico, and though this isn't the best place to hear her sing either "Femme Fatale" or "Janitor of Lunacy," it certainly stacks up as one of the better live recordings of Nico from the 1980s
And what costume shall the poor girl wear To all tomorrow's parties Why silks and linens of yesterday's gowns To all tomorrow's parties And what will she do with Thursday's rags When Monday comes around She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown and cry behind the door.

A blackened shroud A hand-me-down gown Of rags and silks - a costume Fit for one who sits and cries For all tomorrow's parties.
