Cutting Engineer Bernie Grundman. Pressed at Quality Record Pressing (US). Limited Pressing. Minako Yoshida's 6th album Let's Do It was recorded in Hollywood, and was her first time recording outside of Japan working with foreign musicians. It was produced by Gene & Billy Page of Motown fame, with the backup of Motown musicians like David T. Walker, Wah Wah Watson, and Greg Phillinganes. Yoshida later said in an interview that she didn't want a Hollywood sound, so she gathered Ryuichi Sakamoto and her musicians at a studio in Tokyo to create demo tracks with solid arrangements before she went into production in Hollywood. Let's Do It is a great mix of Minako's Japanese song writing sensibility fused with a urban soul/ fusion sound. All Songs are written by Yoshida, except for 3 songs co-written with Tatsuro Yamashita, who later re-recorded Cloud and Time for his own albums.

Monochrome
LP | 1980 | JP | Reissue (Sony Japan)
49,99 €*
Release:1980 / JP – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Pop
1st analogue re-issue since original release. Yasuaki Shimizu (Kakashi) on Saxophone. Rainy Day penned by Tatsuro Yamashita. Comes with a lyrics/credits insert and a liner notes insert. Single Jacket with Obi Strip. Remastered by original sound engineer Tamotsu Yoshida from original master. Cutting Engineer Bernie Grundman. Pressed at Quality Record Pressing (US). Limited Pressing. Monochrome was Minako Yoshida's 7th album, and her first that was self produced. Yoshida, who had recorded previous albums in Los Angeles for a bright Californian sound, had said she wanted to bring it back to more introspective music for Monochrome. She recorded the album by singing over her piano playing and fusing other instrumentation on top of it, using a bare minimal number of musicians. The minimal approach succeeded in creating some very intimate acoustic style soul music. All songs written by her except for Rainy Day, penned by Tatsuro Yamashita, which was re-recorded for his solo album Ride On Time. Yasuaki Shimizu (Kakashi) is guest featured on saxophone.
