RELEASE DESCRIPTION

Light’n Up is Minako Yoshida’s 9th studio album in 1982. Yoshida recorded the basic tracks in Tokyo with her regular band with the addition of Hiroshi Sato on keyboard. A section of the album was also recorded in New York with the Brecker Brothers and David Sanborn.

The album is hailed as a "light mellow" classic of city pop, which is defined as medium-tempo urban Japanese soul/R&B, and was revitalized by club DJs in the late 90s.
