Jun Fukamachi plays on the completely unknown cassette Daisy Chain, from 1983, recommended
A famous keyboardist who was also quite prolific in the era, and a lost and unknown cassette... is it like having heaven on a stick? On several tracks you will notice he achieves an impressive Jasper van t'hof-like complex meld of fusion and synthesizer melodiousness in perfect harmony. He seems to be playing on multiple keyboards (overdubbed) with the occasional guitar accompaniment, occasionally solo, and on some tracks including rhythm section, but the result is quite enticingly full and appreciably fusion.
As far as I can tell this wasn't released to LP, nor does it appear in the list of his releases. What luck to have it unearthed by our wonderful musical miners...
Will these old wonders never cease?
I'll include all the other Fukamachi albums that I have on file, there are I think 20 in total, three separate files to download for limited time only.
Albums are the following: 1975 Rokyu, 1975 Introducing, 1976 Spiral Steps, 1976 Fukamachi at Steinway (possibly incomplete), 1977 Triangle session, 1977 Sgt. Peppers, 1977 Sea of Dirac, 1977 Second Phase, 1978 Tokyo Fusion Night, 1978 On the Move, 1978 New York all stars live, 1978 Dream of Heike, 1978 Evening Star, 1980 Quark, 1982 Synth Fantasy, 1982 Solo Vol. 1, 1982 The Keep - DG, 1983 The Keep - Rockin, 1985 Alien, 1986 Nicole.
Pay attention to the 1978 Dream album, it's masterful, and probably his best work.
