In the late 1960s, Maki Asakawa was discovered by Shuji Terayama and Koji Teramoto, and began performing live at Sasori-za in Shinjuku. The album was released in 1977. Nobuyoshi Hagiwara, Hiro Tsunoda, and Ryuichi Sakamoto participated in this album, as well as Yoichiro Ikeda of Mentampin, Kantaro Uchida of Yuukadan, Mikio Shirai, Ken Yoshida, and Tadanori Kokawa. In addition to the original songs, there are also covers of Rod Stewart and a poem by American poet Langston Hughes that Asakawa wrote. Ryuichi Sakamoto's organ is soulful.
