A techno-disco work released in 1979 by Makoto Yano, keyboard player of the Moon Riders, who is also a renowned arranger. Excellent throughout with a moderate beat tempo and a good sense of st yle featuring female vocals. While highlighting the A3/A4/B3 that would be well received on the floor, B1 sampling "Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers - Egyptian Reggae" and Russian folk song, the cosmic instrumental tune A2, urban mid-disco B2 are also good quality. Think It's one of the most outstanding works from the period of techno-pop's rise to prominence.

アレンジャーとしても名高いムーンライダースのキーボード奏者 矢野誠が79年にリリースしたテクノ・ディスコ作品。適度なビートのテンポに女性ヴォーカルをフィーチャーした氏のセンスの良さが現れたような隙なしの内容。受けがよさそうなA3/A4/B3辺りをハイライトにしながらも、”Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers – Egyptian Reggae”とロシア民謡をネタにしたB1、コズミック・インスト曲A2、アーバン・ミッド・ディスコB2などもクオリティ。テクノポップ勃興期の作品群でも頭ひとつ抜けてる感あります。

A2 - Anesthesia

A3 - Where

A4 - What You Are - On And On And On And On And On / What You Are

B2 - Lonely

B3 - Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna
