Yonin Bayashi - Isshoku Sokuhatsu [+2], 1974 (VBR)

Classic progressive rock album, the title track is lethal as fuck. According to Jrawk: "The album's vibe is not unlike Classics IV's hit "Spooky" jazzy, but still rock, spooky yet spry, gloomy but with a gentle, flexible confidence. Even when the clouds part for Katsutoshi Morizono's vocals in the chorus of "Omatsuri," it sounds like he's shouting bravely from a dark well."

Named 38th (Rolling Stone Japan) and 5th (Takarajima) Greatest Japanese Rock Album of All Time, Julian Cope thinks this is the 49th best Japrock album in the book JAPROCKSAMPLER. This remastered CD edition comes with two bonus tracks originally released as a single attached to the end.
