The reissue of "Watashi No Tanoshimi"
Bridge Inc., the distributor of Hikashu albums, officially announced that the release date of "Watashi No Tanoshimi" ("My Pleasure") is August 20, 2010.
It is basically an instrumental album and intended for fashion show of designer, Jurgen Lehl. It was released in 1984 and have never been reissued before.
Originally it was a picture record, each side featured a photo of Planet Earth and the moon. It will be reproduced for the CD reissue - I don't know how but it is possible, at least so told am I. Also it comes with cardboard sleeve replica of original LP artwork.
And two bonus tracks will be added. Both are unreleased recordings from the same session.
Of course it is remastered, using high resolution 5.6MHz DSD technology.
HMV Japan already listed the album. See Here.
And there will be a concert held at Kichijoji Star Pine's Cafe for commemorating the reissue (and the Fuji Rock appearance) in late August, with various guests including Inoyama Land. More details on this to follow.
