Keizo Nakanishi: KEIZO~かなわない夢もあった~ & Yell

It always seems as things start to clear up, more things arise. Here are the first two albums from a fantastic artist Keizo Nakanishi. I came upon Nakanishi only a few months ago and his style fits right in with the other great singer/song-writer/producer greats of the late 80s and 90s in Japan. I would say he is a mix of Kenjiro Sakiya and Toshinobu Kubota with a touch of Kadomatsu. Of course, he brings in his own flare, complementing his R&B/Pop stylings with great instrumentation, diverse sounds and orchestral layers to many of the tracks. 

Hopefully these links will work! I know people have mentioned some problems with mediafire links. Each time I try them from other computers though, they work. Perhaps it because I am in Korea, I don't know. Alas, if nothing works, I will hunt for a new site. The pesky internet police are definitely the biggest killjoys. Anywho, please check these out and three more from him will be on the way. Enjoy!
