Akiko Yano: Oui Oui & GO GIRL

These will be the last two Akiko Yano posts for now, but fear not cus these are well worth it. These albums mark the last two she would release in the 90's, a strong decade for her. While I did not grow up hearing her music, I am completely enveloped in a warm nostalgia listening to these albums, particularly Oui Oui. Please check these out and stay tuned for more randomness. Enjoy!

Hello.

I'm sure you're familiar with Stephanie/Tsu-Zilla's "Oldies But Goodies". I'm MitsuharuSan from the forum!

I just wanted to thank you for your uploads! I'm discovering some good material plus it was very nice to find a few Sakiya Kenjiro albums.

Is there a chance that we'll have more of him?
Thank you!

bongohito ~ I unfortunately do not have that album but I hopefully will be returning to Japan before I return to america next year and there are some CD stores in Seoul (4hours away) that hold some Japanese music so maybe I'll come across it for ya!

corwyn ~ as always thank you for your support and well wishes. I hear you with being busy, its starting to get to me here but the music helps! Hope you get the chance to post!

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing so many wonderful Akiko albums. I would be so grateful if you have any more to share soon. Much of her music is woefully hard to come by ;_;
