Description

Unseen on vinyl – or indeed, any physical format – since its original Japanese pressing in 1984, Ship to Shore PhonoCo. are proud to announce this limited edition release of Rie Murakami’s Sahara!

The album’s blending of instrumentation and genres – from funk, disco, soul and orchestral arrangements and then back again – makes it reminiscent of early WANG CHUNG’s pop sensibilities, blended with a dash of YELLO’s exuberant playfulness but front and foremost is all the whimsical charm one comes to expect from an 80’s J-Pop record. Not one to be missed!
