There's a chain of soba (noodle) shops who only play enka over their soundsystem- the quintessential Japanese music inside a quintessential Japanese restaurant. That's the questionable loose theme that holds this album together, but the quality of the music is unquestionable. Not only that but it comes with artist and track names and even liner notes in English. Tracks include Shinichi Mori- Minato Machi Blues, Mina Aoe - Ikebukuro no Yoru, Frank Nagai- Omaeni, Ikuzo Yoshi- Yukiguni, Aki Yashiro- Ame no Bojo. 12 tracks.
