Mari Amachi / Reiko Oshida 2LP “Color pack Serie – Local” – CBS /Sony 1973 – Gatefold cover with attached booklet
1 Lp for each singer, Reiko Oshida tracks are taken from her first 3 albums, she was an actress linked to the pinky violence, she sings with some approximations in a depraved manner a bit like Ike Reiko that makes her so sexy, a great erotic figure from the 70’s. Mari Amachi is more like a typical coquetish singer from this period, a good balance between up beat songs and some kayo ballads.
EX (Some stains) / EX, some surface noise, mostly for a couple of rotations, that’s not a perfect copy but still nice for this bargain price.

EX/EX+ for the cover / EX-EX+ for vinyls
Sono Mari LP “Ai ha oshimi naku” Polydor 1968 – Gatefold cover with attached booklet
One of greatest voice of the mid-late 60’s, some similarities with Sachiko Nishida who was signed on the same label, but Sono Mari has a more husky and hypnotic voice. Songs are embellished by the great Polydor Orchestra, if you need some elegance, charm and grace, Sono Mari is one name you’ll definitively fall in love with. All her albums are rare and sadly Polydor pressing aren’t the best, so finding a good copy at a decent price is really difficult.
EX-EX+ / vinyl plays a solid EX, a few surface noise
One of best kind of compilation with the lovely Sono Mari, one of the most gracious voice of the mid -late 60’s, she was one of the most talented singer, everything is at its place, probably the most gracious and high skilled singer. If your ears need some honey without falling in the insignifiance, you’ll become hypnotisized and would probably look after all her stuff. Many tracks here, would make a nice Christmas present to yourself.
EX+/EX , mostly EX+
One of the best Matsuo Kazuko, she was at her peak in the early 60’s, laid back -night ambiance with a husky and intimist voice. Some duos with Frank Nagai & Hiroshi Wada /Mahina Stars, some jazzy late night songs with some strange voices harmonies and hawaian – steel guitar. You can end your night while listening “goodnight “, believe you’ll experience a whole dreamy night.
EX (some stains on the back) / EX , considering its age that’s really a nice copy.
