I would also recommend this one:

http://www.discogs.com/Takehisa-Kosugi-Catch-Wave-97/release/1581590

The original Catch Wave is fairly easy to get, so, needless to say, recommended, too!

Aha! For me - the 'mysterious 4th Bellows LP' [ there were only 5 releases on the label i think ].

Thanks Nick, thanks Onx [& thanks K. for the recommendations]!

Kazunori Sugiyama whose label this was, these days is the partner in John Zorn's Hips Road business empire and the executive producer of 3567 Tzadik releases (approx). Before that, many on DIW..

Byard Lancaster - Documentation; The End Of A Decade is the only Bellows album I know that is available on CD now.

it is so great to see all these KOSUGI releases here - wish he had recorded more ... if someone has his improvisations with Peter Kowald on the original Japan duos album please post - not reissued on CD version or digital version because FMP folks couldn't be bothered to include (STUPIDLY)...

THANK YOU
THANK YOU
