Item Description
Limited edition reissue of this holy grail LP!
Only one copy per customer!

WeWantSounds is proud to announce the release of Hiroshi Sato's ultra-rare synth masterpiece, originally released in 1979 on Kitty Records in Japan only. Digitally remastered from the original tapes it features the cream of Japanese musicians including Shigeru Suzuki on guitar, Haruomi Hosono on bass, Pecker on Percussion and Sato himself on keyboards and synthesizers. This highly sought-after album is a superb breezy mix of Japanese synth-pop with a subtle touch of mid 70s Herbie Hancock-style funk and AOR.
Originally released in 1979 on the Japanese label Kitty Records, at a fruitful time when Sato, Hosono and Suzuki were fresh from playing in the group Tin Pan Alley and Haruomi Hosono had just formed YMO, the album is a unique balance of various styles. It has become one of the most sought-after Japanese LPs on the global Balearic scene and is now exchanging hands for astronomical prices. The album also features on Gilles Peterson’s Significant Album List.
WeWantSounds will release the album on CD and deluxe LP edition. Fully remastered from the original Kitty Records tapes by Universal Japan, the album will come with its original 4-page colour insert including English translations of the original liner notes by leading Japanese journalist Yasufumi Amatatsu plus the full track-by-track musician line up. The album includes such cult tracks as “Son Go Kuw” and “Do-Jo” popular on the international DJ scene.
