YUKIHIRO TAKAHASHI

Saravah Saravah!

Ref: FSD7433


Price: 25.99

New edition of Yukihiro Takahashi's first album from 1978, with newly recorded vocal part, new mix and mastering. Good condition original multi track tapes allowed Takahashi to record the vocal part again, in his current vocal style. Listening to the original vocals, Takahashi could sense a young him (aged 26) perhaps trying to sound older, even a bit like Haruomi Hosono who he was listening to at lot at the time. The album is significant in that it featured members of Takahashi's band at the time, Sadistic Mika Band (Kazuhiko Kato) Tin Pan Alley (Shigeru Suzuki) plus Haruomi Hosono and Ryuichi Sakamoto, who he would soon record with as Yellow Magic Orchestra. Sakamoto co-produced and arranged the album. Also features Tatsuro Yamashita, Minako Yoshida and other leading city pop figures at the time. The album itself, named after a French record label, is based on French pop music. Newly mastered by Yoshinori Sunahara, jacket design by Tei Towa.

Dubforce (EP)

Price: 15.99

Dub - the music, bands, mixes, remixes- has been around for so long in Japan it's almost become a tradition. In March 2015, an event 'Asamoto Lovers Aid' was held to raise money for Hirofumi Asamoto, a musician and lover of dub, who was in hospital at the time receiving treatment after being involved in a bicycle crash. Unfortunately Asamoto later passed away. At this event several veterans of the dub scene got together including Watsui (bass) Gota Yashiki (drums) Aida Shigekazu (guitar), Emerson Kitamura (keyboards) Akihito Masui (trombone) which eventually resulted in Dubforce and this EP. Some of these musicians were in the group Mute Beat (who Asamoto played with) pioneers of the dub scene from the 1980s. These musicians have always remained popular and this latest dub band has been enthusiastly received in Japan by lovers of dub and reggae Tracks range from those written by by Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble to Aswad and originals.

It's often portrayed how Japanese folk (minyo) was mixed with various western music and rhythms following the second world war. However even before the Showa period in 1926, Japanese minyo (ryo) was being mixed with foxtrot, blues, tango and rumba. These songs were popular in dance halls, where these familiar folk tunes took on a new lease of life.
