Very nice discovery from the Superfly Records team few years ago!

Real UFO recorded live in a small club in Minami-Urawa by a doctor passionate about jazz. There is very little information and credits regarding the musicians or the label. The edition is reminiscent of the sought after releases of Aketa's Disk, also having the principle of releasing on vinyl the sessions recorded in their club in the 80s.

The sound recording is certainly not as "Hifi" as on a Three Blind Mice record, but the charm is yet present and the last track of the album perfectly conveys the deep and unique atmosphere of this "amateur" live.

Thank you Qpchan for having managed to get our hands on this magnificent document of Japanese spiritual-jazz!
