This Tokyo quartet began in 1970 as 'San-Nin' (the trio), with Kasutoshi Morizono on guitar and vocals, Kazuo Nakamura o bass and vocals, and Daiji Okai on drums. In early 1971, they were joined by keyboard player Hidemi Sakashita, and thereafter took the name Yonin-Bayashi, which is old Japanese for 'quartet. The band's first gig was at the Satsuki-Sai (May Festival) at Tokyo University, on May 1971. Yonin-Bayashi released several LPs during the 1970s, one of which - ISHOKU-SOKUHATSU - is at number 48 in Japrocksampler's Top 50.

Album titles
ISHOKO-SOKUHATSU should be ISSHOKU SOKUHATSU.

PAINTED JELLY should be PRINTED JELLY.

Dangerous Situation
'Dangerous Situation' is just a speculative English translation of the title for Isshoku Sokuhatsu (used for example on the Black Rose boot)...

And the two Live '73s are the same album. This was first released on Toho in 1978. The Polystar version you list is an expanded CD reissue, but it wasn't released until 2002:
