When Shang Shang Typhoon first arrived on the Japanese music scene in the late 80s they were a breath of fresh air, a Japanese act for the world music scene, the equal of anything anywhere. This album shows why. A genuinely original mix of Japanese, latin and other Asian music, brilliantly performed with wonderful singing and a real energy to it all. This 1988 live album was recorded at Jirokichi in Tokyo. 12 tracks, many of their best known songs.Fascinating.
