I'm in awe of Hiroshi's output. Pretty much became one of my favorite artists ever. Interesting considering how little was known of him during his life. For me the perfect outsider artist, only caring about music and very little about fame. His music really comes from within and...for the lack of better word, "real". It feels real and that's why people can connect to it across the globe. Some call it simple which makes it better, you don't need "complicated" processes to convey emotions. People can connect to his music because he conveys real emotions, not fake emotions created to sell music. It's very lucky he could do all this with also such great instruments like Rhodes and classic synthesizers instead of a computer. That just adds another layer to it.

I am a newcomer to Hiroshi Yoshimura. This music is calming, and to be able to have personal copies of all his music would be a blessing to anyone who wants it. I hope someone reads these requests and responds with release of his music.

If anyone at LITA or Empire of Signs is looking at this - please reissue the rest of Yoshimura’s albums! Flora, Green, Soundscape 1, Wet Land - these are all absolutely perfect albums, and deserve to be shared with everyone all over again on CD and vinyl. Don’t let these masterpieces fade away!
