Originally released in 1982, 2017 remastering of album by Chiemi Manabe, described as the 'original techno idol'. Includes 2 bonus tracks, plus 5 instrumentals and original stickers. Chiemi was originally a member of an idol trio called Pansy, before making this, her only album. Not successful at the time, it has nevertheless become a bit of a cult classic mainly for its stellar list of collaborators and musicians. Haruomi Hosono was the supervisor, and sound producer was Nobuyuki Shimizu, a well known keyboardist and composer. Lyrics and music were by including four Hosono compositions, Taeko Onuki, Kazuhiko Kato, Kenji Omura, Akiko Yano and EPO. Many of these played on the record too, with programming by Hideki Matsutake. This mini-LP style CD has faithfully reproduced the original artwork and lyrics from the vinyl release with added commentary.
