Description

Founded in 1972 by members of a university folk club, Abeichizoku were influenced by Yoshio Hayakawa’s Jacks and URC bands like Happy End, Itsutsu No Akai Fusen and Dylan II. In the twilight of their school years, with the word “job” looming over them, the band recorded their lone album in a grueling 8-hour shift in their university’s assembly hall. Originally released in 1973 and made in only 100 copies, this essential piece of Japanese 70s folk rock has been reissued here for the first time.

Printed on Stoughton “tip-on” jackets. New liner notes by each of the three surviving members as well new English translation of the original liner notes. Audio restoration and mastering by Michael Graves at Osiris Studio. Lacquer cut by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl. 400 copies on black vinyl, and 200 on translucent smoke vinyl.
