This is the first album released in 1975 by singer/songwriter Kimiko Shiba, who disappeared in the 1970s after leaving behind two albums. In addition to songs written by Shiba herself, folk singer Masamitsu Tayama, and Yasuo Inada who left behind the super-obscure synth work “Kankaku-Shikoh,” participated in the composition, and Motoki Funayama, Kosei Mizutani, and Tadashige Matsui participated in the arrangement. With lyrics and a husky voice that are similar to Maki Asakawa, she sings songs with a languid atmosphere that are a mixture of various styles such as soul, blues, folk, country, and rock. The funky tune B6, arranged by Kimio Mizutani, is excellent.
