      For info, you can get A1,A3,A4 from this one (and half of Grey Skies) on this relatively unknown compilation LP from 1981. Pressing is as good as the original.

        Fantastic record... probably one of the best from the City-Pop era. My favorites include 'からっぽの椅子' which is a nice soulful, jazzy ballad and 'Summer Connection' which is a great modern soul dancer. Perfect vocals all the way through!

          I first came across this album on YouTube, and immediately fell in love. Just a heads up to anyone else that finds it on YouTube, the last 3 tracks only appear on the CD Reissues from 2007 and 2010 I believe. I real shame, because 荒涼 (Desolate) is a hauntingly beautiful song, written by Masataka Matsutoya. I wish it was included on at least one of the vinyl versions of this album!

            This one is just sublime. Can I rate it 6 out of 5?
