Title: Recorded Live At The All Japan Folk Jamboree August, 7 1971
Format: LP
Label: B13
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"Blues Creation was formed in 1969 by Japanese axe-hero Kazuo Takeda, along with fellow guitarist Koh Eiryu and singer Fumio Nunoya (later of Dew). Initially influenced by the likes of the Yardbirds and Cream, group mastermind Takeda soon decided to move the heavier territory occupied by bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin. But at the same time Blues Creation had morphed into something truly original, focused more on song writing and looking into their own Japanese roots as well as to the West. By the time this live performance was recorded in August, 1971 at the 2nd All Japan Folk Jamboree, Takedas Blues Creation was a force to be reckoned with. Plays a mix of originals (sung in English) and well-selected covers, as always Blues Creations sound hinges entirely on Takedas impressive handiwork on the fretboard." -B13. 140 gram vinyl. Clear red vinyl in transparent PVC sleeve with blue lettering. Limited edition 500 copies.

"Japans Blues Creation was formed by guitarists Kazuo Takeda, Koh Eiryu and singer Fumio Nunoya, in early 1969, after the dissolution of their Group Sounds outfit The Bickies. Highly influenced by Cream and The Yardbirds, Takeda joined forces with school friends Takayuki Noji, Shinichi Tashiro, and lead singer Fumio Nunoya. Formerly vocalist with Taboo, a heavy band led by future Happy End guitarist Eiichi Otaki, Nunoya was also searching for an even heavier sound, and the results of the new American-influenced experiment were released in October 1969, as Blues Creation. Singer Fumio Nunoya soon found himself edged out of artistic decisions by the supremely confident Takeda, and thereafter left to form his own band, Dew. While searching around throughout 1970 for a new singer, guitarist Takeda heard the new, even more strung-out music of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Eric Claptons solo LP Clapton, and Leslie Wests Mountain, and decided he should take the opportunity to start again from scratch. Takeda enlisted bassist Masashi Saeki and drummer Akiyoshi Higuchi for the new line-up, and eschewed the previous style in favor of his own compositions. With the new Blues Creation fronted by singer Hiromi Osawa, Kazuo Takeda recorded what has come to be regarded as his masterpiece in the form of Demon & Eleven Children, originally released in 1971 on Denon. This album was recorded at the Japan Folk Jamboree, and is a full-on gem of a record, but Takeda was now widely-known as a true Japanese guitar hero, and -- as ever -- had set his sights higher and higher. He split Blues Creation the following year, leaving for London in late 1972. This sludge-y slab of big, loud, brain-busting heaviness sits at #17 on Julian Copes Japrocksampler top 50 list. Includes original LP insert and lyric sheet." -Bamboo
