    restocked, very last copies...Unreleased before live LP (mainly recorded during their 1972 Europe trip)  by the legendary Japanse drone outfit...1972 was a busy year for Japan’s favourite experimental rock band. After several months spent touring Europe, group leader Takehisa Kosugi (currently music director for the Merce Cunningham dance company in the USA) decided to make good on the band’s name and embark on a monumental voyage across Europe and Asia, driving a VW bus from Rotterdam all the way to the Taj Mahal in India! Amazingly, the band got as far as Pakistan before having to fly the rest of the way to the Taj Mahal due to border restrictions. By July of 1972 the band was back home in Japan, and still playing non stop! The three tracks on side A were recorded live during this historic tour, while side B was recorded a year later at the famous Oz Club in Tokyo, during a five day music festival celebrating the venue’s final days.
