中沢厚子 - ファースト・アルバム
by request, here is 中沢厚子's ファースト・アルバム. overall, this is a splendid example of pre-1980s japanese pop. its elements of enka are still fairly evident, as are its folk and blues themes. so, basically, this album doesn't do anything terribly original . . . however, it's fantastic, and i would certainly suggest this to anyone looking to get into that sort of music. her voice is very angelic and completely infectious, like a perfectly made confectionery treat.
anyways, grab this if you want to hear what most pop sounded like before idol singers became popular.
