This album was released in 1985 by Japanese singer Naoko Ken, who has had many hits from the 70s to the present. The production team includes Haruomi Hosono, Kyohei Tsutsumi, Yumi Matsutoya, Takashi Matsumoto, Yu Aku, Yukinojo Mori and many others who are at the forefront of the Japanese music scene. Though the album includes hit songs such as "Roppongi Rain" and "Kishu", as well as the duet with Toshihiko Tahara, "Natsu Zakari Honoji Gumi", it is including unique songs that would never have made it onto a single cut.
A1 is an urban mellow song with lyrics by Yukinojo Mori, music by Tatsuhiko Yamamoto and excellent arrangements by Shiro Sagisu. B2 is Oriental synth-pop at its best, with emotive lyrics by Takashi Matsumoto, strange compositions by Haruomi Hosono and excellent arrangements by Hosono and Nobuyuki Shimizu.
