ポリドール・オーケストラ / Polydor Orchestra: 山は夕焼 / Yama wa yuya





The first of two 10" records I picked up recently from Record Recycler in Torrance, both from a Japanese easy-listening series on Polydor, probably circa 1964. Basic Japanese orchestral arrangements of the mid-sixties, and guaranteed to be the perfect backing track if you need to evoke that period for some reason. Warning: we're seriously getting into the "I bought it therefore I had to restore it, I couldn't stop myself" phase of my record-collecting OCD. You're going to love it when I get to my easy-listening LPs from Thailand a month from now.

山は夕焼 / Yama wa yuya
徳利の別れ / Tokkuri no wakare

  1. Thanks, Taylor, I'll give this rip a good home. Can't wait to see your Thailand phase :)
    I'm not sure OCD is a negative in your case, btw.
