Yamasuki – Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki
Cover: M (sealed)
Very weird psych rock and jazz funk album with children singing. The 1971 concept album was the brainchild of French pop composers Jean Kluger and Daniel Vangarde, who learnt Japanese before recording began and even enlisted the aid of a renowned black-belt Judo master to introduce the tracks, which were all sung in Japanese by a school choir. The result is theatrical, epic, freaky and exotic pseudo-Japanese pop that absolutely defies categorization. The Great Thunder pressing.
