Following YMO’s first wave of success, Hosono took a break from the group and, with help from Alfa Records head Kunihiko Murai, established Yen Records in 1982. The label’s inaugural release was Philharmony, a masterwork recorded almost entirely by Hosono himself at his brand new LDK Studio. With unlimited studio time and freedom to explore, Hosono let himself loose with an array of synthesizers and the latest gadgets, from the Prophet 5 to the E-mu Emulator – all listed as “guest performers” in the album credits. Inspired by the possibilities opened up by these music-making tools, Hosono found new ways to approach his songwriting, resulting in a set of songs that showcase his ability to constantly and consistently innovate and create new standards. With ambient synthscapes like “Luminescent/Hotaru” and the abstract sample-based expressionism of “Birthday Party” sitting perfectly in tune alongside pop favorites like “Sports Men” and “L.D.K.”, Philharmony is one of the most well-loved of Hosono’s albums, and a favorite of the artist himself.

Following Tropical Dandy (1975) and Bon Voyage Co. (1976), Paraiso is the concluding saga in his “Tropical Trilogy.” The album can be seen as a turning point in Haruomi Hosono’s career, having been newly signed to Alfa Records by label head Kunihiko Murai. Hosono expands on the Van Dyke Parks-inspired tropical funk styles explored in the previous albums, and arrives at a captivating fusion sound that’s at times equally earthy and exotic. Hinting at the breakthrough sounds he would perfect with Yellow Magic Orchestra, Hosono uses synthesizers to provide otherworldly textures and a spiritual undertone to songs like “Femme Fatale” and the title track. On his Caribbean-style take on the Okinawan folk song “Asatoya Yunta” and the synth/gamelan workout of “Shambhala Signal,” Hosono takes traditional melodies and mixes them into his own inimitable stew. Featuring a host of well-known musicians like Taeko Ohnuki, Hiroshi Sato and his future bandmates Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, Paraiso perfectly encapsulates Hosono’s eccentric worldview that has shaped his solo career, right before his techno-pop project would blast him into the stratosphere.

As one of the most prolific and respected keyboardists in Japan, Sato has appeared on a countless number of classic recordings as a session player in addition to the dozen-plus solo works he made over his four-decade career. He collaborated often with Haruomi Hosono and his Tin Pan Alley crew and was a member of Shigeru Suzuki’s short-lived band, Hucklebuck. Declining an offer from Hosono to join Yellow Magic Orchestra, Sato moved to Los Angeles instead and began collaborating with West Coast heavy hitters like Maria Muldaur, Spencer Davis, and Randy Crawford. After signing with Alfa Records, Sato convinced the label to purchase him a Linn LM-1 drum machine, which he used extensively on Awakenings. Recorded mostly as a one-man band in Tokyo after he moved back to Japan in 1982, the album featured Canadian-Australian singer Wendy Matthews (whom Sato had met in L.A.), who would later have several top-20 hits in Australia. Guest musicians include Tatsuro Yamashita and Yuji Toriyama

After the release of Technodelic in 1981 YMO took a year-long break, with each member pursuing their own interests, including writing and producing for other artists. Their return from hiatus coincided the release of the single 'Kimi Ni Mune Kyun' in 1983, used as part of a marketing tie-up with a brand of make up. In a marked turn away from the more experimental previous albums, Naughty Boys is highlighted by a guest appearance from Bill Nelson (Be Bop Deluxe) and masterfully crafted pop songs sung in Japanese, which helped propel the album to the top of the Oricon album charts. The remixed Naughty Boys Instrumental was released two months later with an alternate track order and additional instrumentation.

Released in 1980 while Yellow Magic Orchestra was enjoying its first wave of mega-success, B-2 Unit was Ryuichi Sakmoto’s second full length solo effort. Contrasting with the pop-oriented works Sakamoto was doing with YMO at the time, B-2 Unit was produced with a focus on sounds and tones rather than traditional song strucutres. B-2 Unit has proven to be very much ahead of its time and extremely influential in the development of electronic music. ""Riot In Lagos,"" in particular, is often cited as the blueprint for electro/techno sounds that would rise to prominence in the ensuing decade. Recorded in London and Tokyo with dub master Dennis Bovell, Penguin Cafe Orchestra’s Steve Nye, XTC’s Andy Partridge, guitarist Kenji Omura.

Limited edition reissue is remastered by Heba Kadry, cut by Bernie Grundman Mastering, and includes new extensive liner notes by co-producer Yoshitaka Goto, Dennis Bovell, and Sakamoto himself.
