RELEASE DESCRIPTION

DJ Yoshizawa dynamite.jp, an avid record digger and "wamono" style expert who has been active as a professional DJ, remixer, composer, and producer in Japan since the late 80s, published his record guidebook "Wamono A to Z" in 2015. The book introduced many classic and rare Japanese Groove records that were not yet known at the time.

Now, DJ Yoshizawa dynamite.jp recommends four rare light mellow funk and soft rock LPs by Junko Hirotani, Kyoko Omiya & Orange, and Chie Sawa. These LPs were released on the independent Japanese label Pony Canyon from 1974 to 1980.

These albums feature the participation of Haruomi Hosono, Ken Sato, Masaki Matsubara, Masataka Matsutoya, Masayoshi Takanaka, Shigeru Suzuki, Taeko Onuki, Tatsuo Hayashi, Tatsuro Yamashita, Tetsuji Hayashi, Yuji Toriyama, Yukihiro Takahashi, and others.

Singer-songwriter Junko Hirota's debut album, "In That Love...," had all arrangements overseen by Masataka Matsunotani. It features hits like "Touring the Ancient Capital," mellow ballad bossa nova "Last Scene... Farewell," along with tracks like "Summer Moonlight" and "In the Morning Mist," offering a plethora of mellow tunes.

The song has been digitally remastered and reissued on translucent color vinyl with a Japanese obi.
Put the needle on the record, turn up the volume, and dig into "Wamono A to Z" right now!
