A friend sent me a copy of this about a month ago. I recently finally got around to listening to it. After hearing it I wish I had played it sooner. The music on this disc and singing by Kaji Meiko is beautiful. Normally a disc like this wouldn't appear on this site but since I do have samurai related discs on the site I guess this qualifies because two of the tracks appeared in the "Kill Bill" movies. Track 1, "Urami Bushi", and Track 3, "Shura No Hana", were used by Quentin Tarantino in both volumes of "Kill Bill". Track 5 was the theme song to the 1974 film "Jeans Blues - Asu Naki Furaiha" in which the singer played the lead role. Track 7 was the theme song to another movie in which Kaji Meiko had a lead role, the 1972 film "Ginchou Watari Dori".
I thoroughly enjoyed this CD and the beautiful singing voice of Kaji Meiko and am very grateful to Morton Friedland for bringing it to my attention. Highly recommended if you enjoy soft, sweet, female singing.
