The missing Hiro Yanagida album from 1972 as expected titled Hiro, by request

Fanastic artwork, as usual with this artist.

This album was mentioned in the earlier Hiro post as the rarest item in his discography after the UFO Encounter.  Perhaps not surprisingly it's subpar compared to all the others, except the "Folk and Rock Best Collection" which as the victim of low expectations fully bore out the lowness of said expectations. 

There's an odd mix here of completely generic songs, piano solo ramblings, and then the very occasional progressive sound or move here and there, but separated by long stretches of noncoding junk dna type music.  The opening track with acoustic piano, called Nothing, gives you an idea of what I mean:

I'm sure everyone out there has the remainder of his output at this point.



  2. Loving this! Wow! Thanks for filling my request!
