Early greatness from Lorez Alexandria – and proof that she was a singer who could handle a tune like nobody else!

Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover!

Universal (Japan), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $52.99
Japanese singer Maki Asakawa is looking a bit more down to earth than on her 70s albums, and the sound is maybe a bit more in that mode as well – helped out nicely here by American soul artist Bobby Watson – not the jazz musician, but the bassist/keyboardist, who produced the whole set ...
