Many vinyl copies are floating about on Discogs which is quite fortunate for those with demanding ears. This is a hard to classify gem. And since it's hard to classify, it's pretty wonderful. It's not really new age though certainly that's how it was originally marketed. There are two drummers - no way in a new age group correct? It's not reggae but there is some faint influence there for sure. Balearic heads would surely dig this one.

There are subtle rhythms underpinning minimal lovely synths, slack key guitar (or what sounds like it), some tracks are purely instrumental, while most have Japanese lyrics. Aruhi No Kaze is a more understated Police track. You can easily get lost on this. Put it on in a record store and I think many folks would stick around for awhile and politely inquire as to the artist. It's that type of record. Buy it and enjoy while prices are low.
