Hiroshi Sato - Orient
Wewantsounds release Hiroshi Sato’s ultra rare synth masterpiece, originally released in 1979 on Kitty Records in Japan only. Digitally remastered from the original tapes it features the cream of Japanese musicians including Shigeru Suzuki on guitar, Haruomi Hosono on bass, Pecker on Percussion and Sato himself on keyboards and synthesizers. This highly sought-after album is a superb breezy mix of Japanese synth-pop with a subtle touch of mid 70s Herbie Hancock-style funk and AOR. Fully remastered from the original Kitty Records tapes by Universal Japan, the album comes with its original 4-page colour insert including English translations of the original liner notes by leading Japanese journalist Yasufumi Amatatsu plus the full track-by-track musician line up.
