The DAM Promotion Committee of Dai-ichi Katei Denki introduced the latest analog manufacturing technology of the time, including 76 cm/2 tracks, 45 rpm cutting with a quartz rock D.D. motor and diamond cutter needle, and heavy discs, etc. This album was released from the series "Overtake the Mania!" in '70s. The track on side A was taken from a not-for-sale record released on Toshiba Records' <Pro-Use Direct Cutting> series, featuring performances by a group of four hogaku musicians: Kazuo Kurosawa (17 strings), Sumiko Goto (1st koto), Mitoko Takahata (2nd koto), and Takamura Takayama Kitahara (shakuhachi). The B-side is an excerpt from three albums released on Three Blind Mice: "Black Orfe" by the late jazz bassist Isao Suzuki (1976), Yama & Jiro's One track each is selected from Wave's 1975 work "Girl Talk" and Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio's 1974 work "MIsty". All songs are excellent, and the sound quality, which is tighter than the original recordings, is also excellent.B1: Isao Suzuki Trio “Manha de Carnaval”
B2: Yama & Jiro’s Wave “The Way We Were”
B3: Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio “Misty”
