Used 12" 1985

Disc:VG+ (good shape, probably dead stock copy)

Jacket:VG+ (light wear)

Beautiful artwork of jacket is attractive and it seems to be a private 12" by some university's music club called Wave. Total 4 tunes produced in 1985, that can imagine the musical itinerary of New Wave, Disco, AOR by the group led by Takaaki Ozeki, who performed of vocals/synths. The A-side features the disco boogie "Disco Night" with tasty harmony synths and Japanese lyrics and New Wave Rock style "Time Slip". B-side features melancholic love song "Shi-Sen", which seems to reflect the feelings of the rough performance, and rhythmic AOR style "Open Your Eyes". Fully feel the textures of private record, such as an amateur feeling and a bittersweet atmosphere

素敵なアートワークのジャケットのに心奪われるどこかの軽音楽部サークル?による自主制作盤と思われる一枚。85年に制作されたヴォーカル/シンセを担当した大関孝明を中心としたニューウェーヴ、ディスコ、AORなどをの音楽遍歴が想像できる全4曲の12インチ仕様。A面にはシンセと日本語の歌詞がいい味出してるディスコ・ブギー”Disco Night”、歌い上げるニューウェーヴ・ロック調の”Time Slip”。B面には荒さの残る演奏が心情を映し出したような哀愁漂う恋愛ソング"Shi-Sen"、リズミカルなAOR調の”Open Your Eyes"を収録。いい具合の抜け感、甘酸っぱさの残る雰囲気などなど自主盤らしいテクスチャーを存分に感じてもらえると思います。
