    I saw the reissues and just HAD to get an original. I love the big ass OBI it really does add to the cover.
    For the vinyl it’s thin but WOW this thing has a lot of deep bass and I love it. On “Minnie” it’s a very smooth bass that really can roar at times.
    Tatsuro’s voice sounds great as always and is crisp and loud. Trumpets and Alto Sax are so clear, they are nice and up front. The percussion can sometimes really far in the background but overall it’s a well mixed record.

    Great debut for tatsuro’s legendary career.
    76’ OBI > 23’ OBI

      Hoping the new reissue of this album keeps the absolutely MASSIVE obi intact.
