Minako Yoshida’s debut album “Tobira no Fuyu”(Showboat / 1973), known as the monumental landmark in Japanese female Singer Song Writer and City Pop history, is reissued as one of the items of 2021 RSD drop in this complete box set with the original gatefold jacket/Obi strip and direct cutting from original master tapes!
