Album released in 1985 by Japanese singer Naoko Ken, who has had numerous hits from the 1970s to the present. The production team included Haruomi Hosono, Kyohei Tsutumi, Yumi Matsutoya, Takashi Matsumoto, Yu Aku, Yukinojo Mori and many others who were active at the forefront of the Japanese music scene. The album includes hit songs such as 'Roppongi Rain' and 'Kishu' and a duet with Toshihiko Tabata, 'Natsuzakari Honoji-gumi', but it is the songs that will never be cut as singles that make the album so wonderful. You should listen to A1, with lyrical lyrics by Yukinojo Mori and composition by Tatsuhiko Yamamoto, is sublimated into an urban mellow sound by Shiro Sagisu's excellent arrangements, and B2, with lyrics full of Japanese sentiment by Takashi Matsumoto and a mysterious composition by Haruomi Hosono and excellent arrangements by the duo of Hosono and Nobuyuki Shimizu.A1: 悲しいオペラ
