Everytime I see Togashi's name in a new post I always hope to see his Pulsation LP (Masahiko Togashi & Masayuki Takayanagi duo) that seems to rest forgotten somewhere, someplace. But I know that you guys can do miracles and I am patiently waiting... and many thanks for this, a real wonder!

This was wonderful. Really enjoyed the whole thing. Many thanks again, onxidlib.

I do have "Pulsation", albeit the rip has a continous buzzing.
And if one turns up the sound there is a kind of crackling (not from the vinyl)in the quieter parts.
I've tried to remove it but to no avail.
But it is still a good listen and the music is really special.
Something Takayanagi nor Togashi had done before or after!
If this is no problem for you I would post it...

Togashi was the man, thanks.

x onxidlib. If you want my approval of course it is yes, and what you have written makes the music more desirable, perfection doesn't belong to this world...

Brilliant action! Togashi was one of a kind, and he did a whole lot of great albums. Looking forward to the Pulsation LP, when that reaches inconstantsol it will be a BLAST!
