First with his band The Bunnys and later with The Blue Jeans, guitarist Takeshi "Terry" Terauchi covered many popular genres in the '60s and '70s, from garage, frat rock, and surf guitar instrumentals to sentimental ballads via his own inimitable take on the popular classics. Japan's premier guitar hero, her remains little known in the US. His style could be described as neo-surf, blending traditional surf sounds with fuzz guitar, acid organ, and impetuous drums. In 1972 the instrumental album Rashomon was released, featuring a main theme written by Terauchi for Akira Kurosawa's 1951 film Rashomon -- surf/psych with dark guitar and soaring flute. This is its first reissue.
