    Love the album but repress 2022 on my copy has hissy shadowing marks towards the close of side a plus audible marks on A1 and the odd pop caused by circular marks. Most MFM pressings (are amazing) as they seem to be via Pallas DE who along with RTI US are the best IMO with Optimal not too far behind. Wondering if first press was Pallas and they had to go elsewhere for this repress? Strange one!

      Seems like ''Sarah's Crime'' polymorphous composition blends and synchronize disarmingly brilliant, Japanese, European and Mediterranean music many colors navigations into a Balearic sundown magic soundtrack before Balearic as we know it. And it is not the only one on his compilation on Music From Memory... - DJ Nova, Balearic For You

        'Broken Belief' brings together a selection of recordings by Japanese multi-instrumentalist Toshfumi Hinata drawn from a body of work originally recorded between 1985-1987. Attending Berklee College of Music after spending time living in both the United States and the United Kingdom, Hinata would study under the tutelage of pianist Patricia Laliberte, graduating from the esteemed American school in 1982. Returning to Japan after becoming disillusioned with his classical training, Hinata experimented with many different forms of music. Moving away from depending simply on acoustic instruments, he would instead become entrenched in the possibilities of the latest analog synthesizers being developed at the time.
