(V/A) Ongaku 70: Vintage Psychedelia in Japan (Hiruko, 2011)
"Ongaku 70 is the ultimate beginner’s guide to the Japanese psychedelia era. A incredible set of 13 tunes released between 1969 and 1978 including Osamu Kitajima, Stomu Yamash’ta’s Red Buddha Theatre, Akiko Yano, Sadistic Mika Band, Harry Hosono & The Yellow Magic Band, The Apryl Fool, Rabi Nakayama, Karuna Khyal, Kuni Kawachi & His Group, Toshiaki Tsushima, J.A. Caesar & Shirubu, Maki Asakawa and Les Rallizes Denudes. Neither group sounds nor hard rock here, only deep psychedelic rock with local instruments and native language. Be sure to hear the finest hours of Japanese 1970s music." (InSound)
A real oddball digest of 70s Japanese psych/prog. Big ups to Owl for throwing this nice 320 package my way. Looks like it was upped in Flac by Kel bazar over at Avax, back in May. Dig it.
