Having gone through some of Susumu's work, I must say this is his magnum opus. Brew yourself a cup of tea at 5am and put this on. Side C and D completely amazes me. Music that moves the soul...

My copy of this is really clean looking, yet it’s quite crackly in some parts.
How is it for other owners ?

For those looking, for pretty much the same cost of this album you can buy the Leaf 20 Boxset (10 albums on white vinyl and CD in a presentation box) which includes this album on white vinyl. It's still available from the Leaf label for £180 delivered.

Is this really 20 years old? One of the greatest electronica albums of all time in my view- timeless and beautiful. Surprised it isn't better known.

The 20 year repress of Sakura you can find in the 20 anniversary Box from the leaf Label, which still ist Not much more expenive than the Sakura LP itself and includes another 9 LPs from leaf. Check IT out

Hello everyone

Some (although by no means all) of the repress of Sakura we did in 2016 have the repeated clicks at the beginning of side 1. Unfortunately we didn't discover the problem until they had been spread far and wide. The pressing plant, MPO in France, refused to correct the error, which was clearly due to a manufacturing fault (the fault was the same on all the affected copies). At the time, we went through every single copy we had left individually and pulled out the affected copies (the blemish was visible on the vinyl to a trained eye). The 'good' copies went back into circulation, and we sold the 'bad' copies, clearly marked as such, at a discounted price on Discogs.

Following our complaints, MPO refused to press any more vinyl of any of our releases, and we haven't worked with them since. I would estimate that somewhere between 2-300 copies of the album were pressed with this mistake.

Please accept our apologies if you have one of the affected copies, but take heart in the fact that, even with the mistake, those copies are probably worth a lot more than you paid for them!

It's worth noting that, as far as we know, none of the white vinyl edition has the pressing problem.

love, The Leaf Label

Disappointing more copies of this weren't pressed. It seems quite a few people missed out.
