Takeshi Inomata & Sound Limited - Sounds of Sound L.T.D. 1970 Japan

Takeshi Inomata & Sound Limited - Sounds of Sound L.T.D. 1970 Nippon Columbia.

CD reissues: 2007 P-Vine; 2013 P-Vine (mini-LP)

Packaging: We featured Takeshi Inomata & Sound Limited's "Innocent Canon" back in March, and interestingly enough, has proven to be the second most popular post on UMR according to blogspot. The situation with vinyl and CD are almost exact as with that album, except the new "Sounds of Sound LTD" is in the mini-LP format (single sleeve cover). And that's the version I own.

Notes: Nice bit of psych exploitation from Japanese jazz group. Beautiful flute/Hammond driven soundtrack styled pieces ('Theme-Mustache', 'Monster', 'Lullaby for Yuh' (haha, yea that's the spelling), 'Theme') are offset unexpectedly by the one 7 minute freakout on here: 'Scotland Scene', with its massive fuzz bass and psychotic electric guitar leads. Not near as insane (or frankly as sublime) as the 1971 followup "Innocent Canon", but this album is a heck of a lot of fun. Pick it up if you see it.
