Akina Nakamori: フォーク・ソング~歌姫抒情歌~, ムード歌謡 〜歌姫昭和名曲集, フォーク・ソング2~歌姫抒情歌~ & DIVA

And so it ends. This is the final Akina posts, for now at least. I have been getting a great response from these and its been fun posting these over the last few months. This final post contains 4 albums, 3 of them covers and the last an original. Unfortunately, I was a little pressured for time and I was unable to compile together the originals of the cover albums. I will post that next when I get the chance, so I guess this wont be the last Akina post lol. Similar to the Enka album, the two フォーク・ソング albums maintain a "folk" theme featuring the works of famous singer songwriters in Japan. ムード歌謡 on the other hand, features Jazz/Big band renditions of popular Showa performance songs of the 60's & 70's. Finally, DIVA, Akina's last studio effort to date, is a heavily modern electronica/pop album that is comparable in sound to the like of J-Pop singers like Ayumi Hamasaki & Utada (but I think Akina is a much better singer!). Thanks again to the visitors of the page, I haven't decided what I will be posting next but hopefully it will be as popular as these have been. Enjoy!

Hey! I'm Matthew, a suddenly big fan of Akina Nakamori ^_^ I seen where you have uploaded the Diva album a couple of times, but the links are now invalid. Is there anyway you can re-upload this album for me? I will be forever grateful!
Thank you so much!
