Artist: FUKAMACHI, JUN
Title: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Format: LP
Label: Victory
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
Reissue of Japanese artist Jun Fukamachis 1977 electric version of The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. "This superbly crafted direct-to-disk features the versatile Fukamachi as a veritable one-man band in a lively album that captures the essence of the original Beatles tunes throughout. The innovative arrangements of the artist, tailored to get the maximum benefit from a surrounding instrument array, produce one of the better technical efforts of this series. Synthesizer effects provide special "flavor," particularly at the close of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" on side one, and in the evocative opening of "Shes Leaving Home" on side two. . . . Fukamachi blends a concert grand, electric piano, Arp synthesizer, glockenspiel, bass drum, tambourine and other electronic instruments with results that indicate a group, not a solo, with ample display of each." - Billboard, September 9, 1978.

Artist: FUKAMACHI, JUN
Title: Nicole (86 Spring And Summer Collection - Instrumental Images)
Format: CD
Label: We Release...
Country: Switzerland
Price: $16.00
"WRWTFWW Records present the release of Jun Fukamachis highly coveted Nicole (86 Spring And Summer Collection - Instrumental Images) album, originally recorded in 1986 for celebrated fashion designer Mitsuhiro Matsudas Nicole clothing brand. Never officially available before, Nicole was only distributed as a limited promotional item offered to attendees and participants of the 1986 fashion show for the Nicole brands Spring and Summer collection. Fukamachis moody magnum opus has become a sort of holy grail for fans of Japanese ambient, jazz, and synth music alike --and rightly so. Meticulously conceived, smooth and subtle, Nicole sounds like it came from an ethereal land where Erik Satie and Art of Noise lived together, a sublimely cinematic listening experience perhaps best described by renowned Japanese music writer Masaharu Yoshioka, aka The Soul Searcher: "If you are driving down the Autobahn at 160 km/h, or even 80 km/h, and Juns music starts playing on the car stereo, the windshield will instantly turn into your own personal silver screen." Made in cooperation of the artists estate; Includes new liner notes by Masaharu Yoshioka. CD version comes in a digipak; Includes one bonus track, "Passion"." - WRWTFWW.
