Masayuki Takayanagi – Kaoru Abe Ltd LP

Masayuki TakayanagiKaoru Abe LP ” Kaitai Teki Kōkan”  Craftman Records

The album features a recording of the duo’s live performance at the Kōsei Nenkin Kaikan concert hall in Shinjuku on June 28th, 1970. The reissue is pressed on 180g vinyl and replicates the original LP’s textured sleeve. It also includes a replica flyer that advertised the original event. Supposedly released in a limited run of 100 copies, this incredibly rare record is finally getting its first vinyl reissue via Craftman Records – but still at an incredible high price. Sorry for that but I don’t have any wholesale and I paid cash to get these few copies.

$85

Makoto Kawashima CD

Makoto Kawashima CD “Dialogue” Homer Sacer

What a fantastic 19 minutes track, maybe one of  the most moving solo I’ve heard for months, once again it’s hard to not having Ikezumi Hideo in minds as he was the first who supported Makoto. That’s more than a solo sax track, it’s so intense and elegiac, words can’t really make justice to the music.
