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.
