A3 "Everything Passes" Voice Samples:I remember when I got obsessed with this record I'd have this need to thank Japan Blues by suggesting him one track from my collection - until I realized that he sampled one tiny bit of it on his record. It's not that main vocal part but the "ORA ... ORA" part that he used. You'll find it here:レコード リンゴ追分 美空ひばりhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OKcm349hzAFor the main singing vocals - it's a traditional Japanes Folk Song called "Lullaby Of Itsuki". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVQCLzon_F4I found the right version on a 1961 record "Traditional Folk Songs Of Japan Part II". Selected and arranged by Ryutaro Hattori from his personal collection. There's a lyric sheet with translations to the song:"I'm poor like a beggar, beggar;You people are goodly people,With goodly obi and goodly kimono on.As for me, if I should die,Who would weep for me?Only cicadas sing 'mong the pines on the hill.If I should die, bury me by road-side,Every passerby may offer flowers."A good friend of mine once said that he would enjoy some music that would make him feel like "eating out in an unaffordable Japanese restaurant, where you select your yet living dinner by pointing at it". It's three years now since I started digging for a compilation for him - Japan Blues opened the back door of this restaurant for me.

A3 samples Inoyama Land - Glass Chaim . . .
some of the most weirdest sounds i have ever heard. Fantastic record!
Does anyone know any of the tracks sampled in this?
A1 contains a sample from Interior - Ascending, album Interior (1982)
There are three hints on samples from "Everything Passes", which you'll find a few posts above yours..
Got a copy during RSD. The in-shop DJ was playing a track, so I asked, and they had a copy left. Wow, what an album!
anyone else waiting on Redeye records? They keep pushing back the release date ...

Redeye just got another batch in, shipping at the end of the week.https://www.redeyerecords.co.uk/vinyl/83255-
Just emailed Redeye and they said they 100% had another batch coming in ... so hang in there folks!
yep, release date shows up as April 24 now, and they're still available for purchase. had a similar situation with the first LACR release and ended up getting in-store credit for it after a few months of waiting. hope this is not the case!
stunning sounds! quality record and a crystal clear, evocative window into a world largely unbeknownst to those of us less clued up on traditional japanese music. sits nicely next to Nihon Indigo. "appropriation" done right; with dexterity, direction, respect and taste. big up howard!
Just got my copy from the trilogy tapes and man was this worth waiting for! Amazing music, and beautifully presented. Highly recommend if you can get your hands on it!!
