Yasuko AgawaFree Soul – Yasuko Agawa ... CD
Victor (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet little set – one that brings together some of the grooviest cuts ever recorded by Japanese singer Yasuko Agawa – one of the leading lights of the overseas scene at the end of the 70s! Yasuko's got this really special blend of styles – a bit jazz, a bit soul, often polished a bit in production, but never in a too commercial way – and occasionally set up with some Latin or Brazilian touches in the rhythms, which makes for some mighty nice grooves! Yasuko always able to transcend both the more AOR city pop styles of the time, and some of the more conventional Japanese soul – a very hip singer, as you'll hear on these 19 tracks that include "LA Nights", "New York Afternoon", "Skindo Le Le", "Seabird", "Velas", "Zanzibar", "Pardon My English", "The Universe Is Calling You", "Island Breeze", "Until You Tell Me", "It's My House", "Take A Holiday", and "In The Name Of Love".

VariousPacific Breeze – Japanese City Pop, AOR, & Boogie 1976 to 1986 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Warm, soulful sounds from a crucial time in the Japanese music scene – a 70s moment when the nation was finding a special groove of its own – but one that also drew heavily from American soul and jazz as well! It's no secret that the Japanese have always had a great love of American sounds – but by the mid 70s, that longtime love had also turned into some great homegrown sounds of their own – as Japan developed a number of its own strong soul singers, who were often backed by the ever-growing array of great jazz musicians, particularly those of the fusion side of the spectrum. Plus, there also seemed to be a lot more criss-crossing between Tokyo and US studios at the time – particularly those on the west coast – which resulted in a special blend of sounds that had all the class and cool of the Japanese urban scene, but also some of the sunniness of the west coast too. That special mix of music is perfectly summed up here – in a collection that offers up plenty of cuts that were never issued outside of Japan back in the day – with vocals both in English and Japanese, and plenty of grooves that are perfect for any fan of fusion-styled R&B. Titles include the classic "LA Nights" by Yasuko Agawa – plus "Say Goodbye" by Hiroshi Sato, "I Say Who" by Tomoko Soryo, "Sports Men" by Haruomi Hosoni, "Midnight Driver" by Minako Yoshida, "Machibouke" by Tazumi Toyoshima, "Exotic Yokogao" by Hitomi Tohyama, "Lady Pink Panther" by Shigeru Suzuki, "Drip Dry Eyes" by Yukihiro Takahashi, and "Bamboo Vendor" by Masayoshi Takanaka.
