Beschreibung

Wewantsounds is pursuing its ambitious Akiko Yano reissue program with the release of "Japanese Girl", her landmark debut album from 1976. Backed by Little Feat with Lowell George and by the cream of Japanese musicians (including Haruomi Hosono), Japanese Girl is one of the most important Japanese albums of the 70s, mixing pop, rock, Japanese folk together with Little Feat's superb classic sound.

The deluxe LP edition includes remastered sound, tip-on LP sleeve, download card plus the original 4-page insert with lyrics and full line-up!

Against all odds they said yes and Yano left Tokyo for Los Angeles in March 1976 to record a full side with them. The legend has it they found it so difficult to keep up with Yano's compositions they returned some of their fee. The Session was nevertheless stunning and Lowell George even compared Yano to Stevie Wonder. The Little Feat blend of New Orleans groove matched Yano's melodies perfectly, as witnessed on "Funamachi-Uta Part 2." Originally a traditional song from The Nebuta Festival in her hometown of Aomori (part I on side 2 gives a good idea of what the original form sounds like), the Little Feat version is a formidable slow-
