  • Indie exclusive Kagero Gold vinyl
RELEASE DATE // Jun 21, 2019
12" Album / Light In The Attic / Rock, Folk, Country
Often regarded as Japan’s first female singer-songwriter, Sachiko Kanenobu created an enduring legacy with Misora, a timeless classic of intricate finger-picking, gently soaring melodies, and rustic Laurel Canyon vibes. Originally released in 1972 on URC (Underground Record Club), one of Japan’s first independent record labels, the Haruomi Hosono-produced album remains one of the most beloved works to come out of Japan’s folk and rock scenes centered around Tokyo and Kansai areas in the early 1970s.

Pressed on gold vinyl and housed in deluxe gatefold jacket; the audio has been remastered from the original analog tapes and includes a booklet containing rare photos, translated lyrics and a new interview with Kanenobu.
