  • man i'd love to get some of his cds, particularly the for you album. All the stuff in the web isnt very high quality tbh.
  • I discovered Yamashita (and other great 80's Japanese artists) through this: http://boingboing.net/2015/02/02/a-70-minute-mix-of-japanese-19.html
  • So addicted to Ride on Time lately.
  • The War Song
  • クリスマス・イブ....
  • genius and figure
  • "does he have any particularly recommendable records?" "For You is absolutely perfect!" Ride On Time and Pocket Music are both great as well. Melodies is his most popular album I think if only for Christmas Eve. Basically all the stuff I've heard from him is excellent though. Dude has such an incredible voice.
  • Just gonna listen to 僕らの夏の夢 for the rest of the day.
  • i've so far most been into "theme from big wave," "i love you," basically tatsuro's noble attempts to make late-period beach boys tropes sound good. :D
  • some scattered goodness on his multi-disc hits comp. does he have any particularly recommendable records?
