Thanks

Thanks Taro and Boogieman

I've enjoyed so many of the Japanese LPs that you have posted; it's great that Inconstant Sol has returned the favour.

Thank you thanks you thank you! This has been VERY high on my wishlist. If only the labels in Japan would reissue all this rare and strange psychedelic avant-jazz that hasn't ever been on cd!
Your contribution is much appreciated until then!

rock on,
Chris

Thanks for the post I've been looking for this everywhere. Could I make a request? You wouldn't happen to have Four Jazz Compositions which is another collaboration between Masahiko Sato and The New Herd.
