Richard Yamaguchi & Akiko Fukumitsu – The Beginning Song
Used LP 198X
Disc:VG+ (good shape)
Jacket:VG+ (good condition) w/obi,insert
A private synth-pop album composed and arranged by still mysterious Richard Yamaguchi. The release was probably around mid to late 80's. It's a work filled with a sense of refreshing feeling, memories of youth, struggles with the times, which could only have been possible at "this time" with the extensive use of synths. Total well put together despite being an independent release, with "Last Scene" featuring exquisitely tone-deaf vocals that bring out the sound of the synths, "Sore Wo Kimini” with its nice intro part and melancholy vocals from middle part and "I want to find yesterday's dream" with its indescribable use of synths. The extended texture of homemade music is also a nice touch.
