Impressive list of guest musicians includes band mates from Metafive, Gondo Tomohiko (flugel, computer programming & editing) Keigo Oyamada (Cornelius) (electric guitar) and Leo Imai (vocals). Delicate, intelligent, witty, socially conscious pop/rock. Includes the Softly Softly recently used as the opening for the NHK J-Melo programme. First release for about 30 years on the Better Days imprint of Nippon Columbia. This label released debut records by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kazumi Watanabe, Yasuaki Shimizu and others, released albums by KYLN, Mariah, with many of these earlier albums recently gaining attention outside Japan.
