@crysmy I wasn't about to lug home a big kakimochi!
@Annoddah_Dave It's nice to see old-time companies looking to how they can improve and move forward. I get so frustrated with people who think "We do this because that's the way we've always done it."

@debaoki thank you! I'm glad you posted that because I actually don't know much about the novel (shame on me).
Nothing wrong with getting your sake fix on!!!
Since you may not have seen this on Facebook, these are some shots from my friend Dayna. I think they were all from 1976.

@MelissaKamakawiwoole @Saburo Wow, that Youtube channel has quite a few vids of collab performances. This one looks like they are singing each others' songs?
@Saburo @Melissa808 @MelissaKamakawiwoole I think I was done in 1978....

@MelissaKamakawiwoole maybe it was the same for everyone else? The craze died down as fast as it grew, I thought.
@scrivener LOL! That's why a lot of them made it, I think.....well, I guess the same can be said for some American singers.
@MelissaKamakawiwoole it played for me.
@MelissaKamakawiwoole holy crap, the big 3! What year was that?
@momonakokeshi If you walk thru Marukai on the right day, they'll be playing some of this old stuff!
@Saburo wow, he's pretty well preserved!
@Saburo Das da kine stuff my parents would listen to/watch!
@MelissaKamakawiwoole oh my gosh! I didn't know about your Saijo story. Actually now that I look back I can actually see who had real talent and who was just cute. I'm finding myself impressed at how good Hideki Saijo was and a little bummed to see others are just good karaoke.

@Saburo Thank you!!!
3 weeks ago on Nostalgic J-Pop at Yoyogi Milk Hall
@Saburo I remember the name of the band but when I googled them, they were completely unfamiliar to me. Hmmmmm
@Saburo oh wow! The former President of the Hideki Saijo Fan Club will probably squeal. BTW I got kind of teary watching the above video. It's one of my favorite songs he did and the vid shows his signature flamboyant style.
@Saburo For real?! Good ear, I can't tell. Maybe I should re-dub it using the singing from this video? At least we can see him singing so we know it's him.
@macnut LOL Me neither
@naomiow9 I think we all did!
@turkfontaine Oh hellerrrr! It was mine, too. But in my defense, I was a kid.
@Saburo It sounded so familiar! Thanks!!
