Justin Heathcliff (Osamu Kitajima)Justin Heathcliff ... CD
Everland (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
A weird little album from early 70s Japan – an obscure project from Osamu Kitajima – who'd later be known for his jazz and fusion work! This set's completely different from those recordings – and is an Anglo rock project with lyrics in English, and a very groovy sound throughout! ... (Rock, Japanese) read more CD

✨✧ Masaaki HiraoNippon Rock N Roll – The Birth Of Japanese Rokabirii 1958 to 1960 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Rare rock from the Japanese scene of the postwar years – but sounds that definitely have a universal appeal overall! Masaaki Hirao is way more than just a novelty remake of American rockers of the time – as he's got a sharp-edged sound that easily rivals the best we had to offer here ...

Osamu KitajimaBenzaiten ... CD
Everland (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A really unique project from guitarist Osamu Kitajima – a player you might know from his smoother fusion sets at the end of the 70s – but who works here in a very trippy blend of Japanese instrumentation and electric jazz! Kitajima handles a heck of a lot of strings – both ... (Jazz, Japanese) read more CD

Osamu KitajimaMasterless Samurai ... CD
Everland (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Evocative fusion work from Japanese guitarist Osamu Kitajima – a record that mixes together LA electric with some folksier elements, in the continuing exploration of cross cultural patterns that drifted across Kitajima's work from this time. The album's got a compelling blend of electric and ... (Jazz, Japanese) read more CD

Osamu KitajimaOsamu ... CD
Everland (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A great mix of modes from Osamu Kitajima – a set that's still got some of the exotic elements of his other material, but which also brings in a stronger fusion component too – mixing Kitajima's work on guitar and koto with plenty of Fender Rhodes and other great electric touches! The ... (Jazz, Japanese) read more CD

✨✧ Speed, Glue & ShinkiEve ... CD
WEA (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $24.99
An incredible album from the Japanese scene at the start of the 70s – served up by a group with a name that might be clunky, but which also belies one of that nation's heaviest combos of the time! The approach here is a bit like some of the tripped-out blues-influenced rock of the Led Zep ... (Rock, Japanese) read more CD
(Out of print, 1998 Japanese pressing.)

SuzkenBarroco ... CD
Urban Discos (Japan), 2022. New Copy ... $19.99
A mix of jazzy and soulful styles from Japanese artist Suzken – sometimes instrumental, sometimes vocal – often with some warmer touches that evoke a vintage mode as well! Yet the record's not the usual retro funk outing – as Suzken really has an ear that's all his own – a ... read more CD

Blazing 60s & 70s string-shredding mastery from Japan's great guitar instrumentals guru Takeshi Terauchi – whose playing matches the greatest 50s & 60s rock guitar gurus in both dexterous ability and pulpy mood setting!

YuiaveFloating Boat ... CD
DIW (Japan), 2004. Used ... $14.99
A record that's as beautiful as it's evocative title – sweetly gentle soul from Japan, done with a nice blend of acoustic touches that really expand the work! In a way, the album's got a feel that reminds us of some of Monday Michiru's best later work – the period when she started ... (New Grooves, Japanese) read more CD

A very cool collection that opens up who new territory for digging into the wonderful world of Japanese underground music – a set that features titles that were only issued on CD at the time, which might make these cuts even more obscure for those vinyl-centric folks looking into the music! ... read more CD

Groovy, moddish, magnificent and sunny girl pop from The Land Of The Rising Sun – pummeling drums, jumping arrangements and groovy vocals from the mid-to-late 60s Japanese scene!

Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of ... read more CD
