Experience the captivating and hypnotic sounds of Joyama no Narazumono – a rare gem of Japan’s 70’s folk scene! A genre-bending album by duo Shigeki Kobayashi and Yasuo Yamada, who drew inspiration from songs by local boatmen and British folk like Fairport Convention and The Albion Band to craft a minimalist, intimate approach to both traditional and original compositions.

Locally released in 1979 in an edition of just 100 copies, this highly sought-after album is now available worldwide for the first time.

Printed on Stoughton “tip-on” jackets. 300 copies on black vinyl, and 200 on Translucent “Root beer” vinyl.
