川島裕二 (Banana)
Master of Porta Sound
Yupiteru Records (Japan) 1981
YL-1023 (LP) w/obi, insert.
sleeve : EX+(very slightly wear on edge.)
media : NM-/NM-(some very slightly surface noises, still fine.)

This is a demonstration record for the Porta Sound PS-3, a portable keyboard from YAMAHA released in 1981. Yuji Kawashima aka Banana, who was a member of EP-4 and arranged for Yosui Inoue and many indie new wave bands, arranged and performed all the songs. The last song on the album, "Kohsen No Kuni He" is an original composition by a man named Private Doctor (Banana?). It's a psychedelic new age tune with a sound like glittering light pouring down, and I can't help but be impressed by his outstanding sense of style and how he can make such music with a portable keyboard.
