A friend sent this CD to me as a Christmas present. I love it. I've played it five or six times as of this writing and it just keeps growing on me. I especially like track 10 "Let's Go Boogaloo". To me, the best way to describe this CD is to think of it as a Japanese version of The Ventures who were very popular here in the United States during this same time period. Even though Takeshi Terauchi denies he was influenced by The Ventures, it seems obvious upon hearing this disc that most likely he was influenced. This title is currently on the Ace Records web site at www.acerecords.com.
