Taeko Ohnuki - Sunshower, MIGNONNE, ROMANTIQUE

Three early albums from the fantastic Taeko Ohnuki courtesy if JPDDL. These albums cover the best of the popular genres of the latter 70's and early 80's. Sunshow and Mignonne hold a Jazzy/disco feel with Romantique dabbling in new wave/synth soundscapes while maintaining her jazzy roots. There's upbeat atmosphere in the albums you just don't get anymore and it makes me highly nostalgic for a time I was regrettably not alive in haha! ROMANTIQUE is my favorite of the three but there is something for everyone in these.  

If anyone has her debut any others that have yet to be posted, please share the wealth! I truly hope all my visitors are well and healthy and I hope to get to requests and such in the near future. Enjoy!

Akira Mitake - Out Of Reach

Solo debut from ex Ippu-do keyboard/violinist, Akira Mitake. The album is very much a continuation of the group's sound with a mix of a Yukihiro Takahashi album. Ippu-do fans keep an ear out for the first track "Violation" which was also performed on the "Live & Zen" LP and also for a great Culture Club cover! It's definitely a vinyl rip and courtesy of the defunct "Music Blog of Saltyka and His Friends". 

If anyone is interested I also have the soundtrack he did for the Android Kikaider anime series. Enjoy!
