Under the supervision of reportage writer Rou Takenaka, this series of "Japan's Forbidden Songs" compiles a collection of forbidden songs and folk arts passed down from generation to generation, ranging from shunka, zashiki performance, to resistance songs that satirize society and politics. A total of seven works were planned, but a rift arose between URC, which wanted to distribute the works, and Takenaka, who was concerned about underground publishing, and ended up producing only four works (the fourth work was not even supervised by Takenaka). This is the third album, and is a collection of Okinawan island songs, mainly spring songs that have been sung in the Ryukyu, as well as resistance and anti-war songs. Includes songs and commentary by two masters, Rinsho Kadekaru on side A and Yukichi Yamasato on side B. A historically important work of popular music/common entertainment history created by the late Takenaka Rou, which includes bizarre episodes and detailed explanations of songs. Please take the time to enjoy it while looking at the spread commentary and inserts. Just amazing.
