Himico Rec.   Osamu Okuno : (JAP,1970)**°'

Airplay given: Tr.5, 5 min

Good but not overall surprising folkpsych/rock/acid folk s/sw item, with a certain emotionality in vocals. I like the 5th track for its strange psychfolk instrumentation and accompaniment

T..  Yasumi No Koni : Fy Fan (JAP,1972)*°'

(tr.2, 3 min)

A minor highlight is this small  psych-folk instrumental with nice flute, simple percussion, acoustic guitar. The album is psychpop/rock. I asume this album will mean more to people who understand Japanese.
