Shinichi Mori 森 進

I found this album by Shinichi Mori (森 進) at a local record store.   The cover is great and so is the music inside.  Hardcore Enka that takes no prisoners.  Mori Shinichi is a major singer in Japan, and is known for his downbeat songs about Tokyo bar life.  The romance of the whiskey mizu/water or that glass of sake too many.  

Perhaps Shinichi Mori's masterpiece?  I found this vinyl yesterday.  It's his blues album or is it a blue album?  Nevertheless one gently goes into Shinjuku, with no hope of getting back.
