Label:Not On Label

Jacket:VG+ (light mold wear, totally not bad condition)
A self-produced album that seems to have been released by the fusion band Early Byrds before signing with the label. That performance that convinced us to have a major contract the following year with vocalist Kyoko Kimura, who also sang on the chorus of the Japanese reggae classic "Masaki Ueda - Harder They Come" and presents a sophisticated fusion and jazz lineup. The standout track is the mellow smooth fusion "Ocean Song" with its smooth synths and impressive vocals. Total nice contents include smooth fusion "Lullaby" and the new age style "In the Summer Light". Qality piece that you wouldn't expect from an private release. Amazing.
