REVIEW

October 17, 2014

"National Forest" is a documentary trilogy produced in 1955.

Unlike other CD's released by "The Bukimisha Weird Secret Society - Takeo Yahiro & Friends" the music on this CD is not a cappella singing. And unlike other CD's by them there are no hidden tracks here. From what little I can find out about this CD it is music composed by Akira Ifukube that was never used in any of his film scores. The music is played by an orchestra with no vocals. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this CD. The music itself is somewhat light with some tracks sounding a bit sad and somber. The CD comes in a plain plastic pouch with no jewel case or booklet. It's just as you see in the picture at the top of this page.
