Only record piece in 1983 by Keiko Usami, who has been active not only as a model also  known as an actress/commentator since the 1970s. Produced by Ichiro Araki, who is known for his multi-faceted musical activities, Shigeki Watanabe and Tatsushi Umegaki also participated. A line-up centered on medium tunes, highlighting jazzy mid AOR "Paper Moon" and city funk "Lipstick / Wednesday is melancholy". The adult atmosphere that suits the bewitching appearance is also amazing. It's a title that has been attracting attention in recent years.

70年代よりモデルのみならず女優/コメンテーターとして活動してきた宇佐美恵子が83年にリリースしていたレコード作品。プロデュースにはマルチな音楽活動で知られる荒木一郎が手掛け、渡辺茂樹、梅垣達志も参加しながら、ジャジーなミッドAOR”Paper Moon”、シティ・ファンク”Lipstick / 水曜日は憂鬱”をハイライトにミディアムな楽曲中心のラインナップ。妖艶な容姿に似合ったようなアダルティな雰囲気も極上。ここ数年注目されているタイトルです。今陽子などのグルーヴが好きな方にも推薦。
