Japan's world-famous psychedelic rock mega-rare album is being repressed!
This is the only album by People, originally released in 1971, featuring organist Yusuke Hoguchi and guitarist Kimio Mizutani of Outkast, Hideaki Takebe of Adams, and percussionist Sunaga Larry.
Produced by Naoki Tachikawa, this album was based on the concept of Buddha + Rock.
The album is full of unique psychedelic sounds, including the chanting of "Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo" with fuzz guitar, the sound of monks' clogs, bells, wooden fish, sitars, etc.
Although there are a lot of sound effects reminiscent of Buddhism, this is not a "religious album" per se, and overall the work is easy to listen to.
In recent years, this album has been highly praised by DJs for its breakbeats and spirituality.
...[A]n undisputed classic of the Japanese psychedelic underground.
