Known as the 'Empire of Jazz', Dick Mine was one of the biggest stars of his day. Born as Tokuichi Mine, he translated the words of the song Dinah into Japanese himself, which became his first hit single. Dinah is featured with other 'urban' classics released mostly during the war. All 35 tracks are released onto CD for the first time, and include rarities such as 'White Heat' and 'Romantic'.
