Here's a beloved old seven-inch four-song single from Nippon Columbia records. In particular I have been DJing it's 'best' cut The Soba Song for years and years, as it is such a prime example of a mutant country song, wonderful words, arrangement, and that middle-eight Solo Break - Wow! You'll hear what I mean - truly inspiring.
By pure coincidence today's and my next post (April 16th) happened to be about Japanese records, unusual for me - I rarely seem to blog about anything remotely current, so I hope you like this record and the very tasty one coming up next.
I think that this is another Asian record that I bought in San Francisco, many of them brought home by servicemen. I've no idea when this came out, and I like the metal spacer that came with it to fill out that big ol' 45rpm record hole. Indeed - I know you'll be humming that Soba Song in no time at all.
