Ever wondered what Tokyo sounded like 55 years ago? While the visual differences are obvious, the aural differences are all the more interesting. All recorded in 1959, the sounds of Tokyo train staion, music of a Geisha, bonfire festival, a festival at a shrine, a street festival, fish market, children playing on the streets, an early Jazz house in Asakusa. Many of these sounds have come to symbolise the sound of the Showa period. Originally released in 1959 as an LP record this CD is compiled from the original LP.
