    Harumi LP (1968)

    Verve Forecast

Japanese soft psych LP featured on Soul Strut ISH Volume 1 in the early 2000s. Review by Karlito.

"Talk About it" is my favorite song on this record, it starts the thing off in style with a hard backbeat, blaring horns and uncanny singing. Other highlights of the 1st LP, this is a twofer, are "Sugar in your Tea" and "Caravan". Basically, the first LP is a really good pop/soft psych. The 2nd LP is weird spoken word from Harumi himself as well as others; all backed by eastern instruments, like kotos and flutes, and some hand drums. The gorgeous gatefold cover is also a serious asset to this record.
