Jimmy, Yoko & Shin - Sei Shonagon (mini lp sleeve/blu-spec CD)

SKU 14-THCD 259
Certainly the most anomalous release on the legendary, 70s audiophile Japanese jazz label Three Bind Mice. As far as the experts know, this is the only progressive rock album to be released on the label during its lifetime. The cover art looks straight out of a 1969 psychedelic pop album, but this not pop music.

The group, who only made this one album, was Yoko Sumiya (electric keyboards), Shin Okabe (drums) and leader Jimmy Shironaga (vocals, electric bass).

This is straight-forward, classic prog rock, most obviously informed by ELP and, since it was originally released in 1978, it is very late to the party for the glory days of classic prog, but it also predates the classic progressive rock revival that hit Japan about a decade later! So, early or late, this is a good one for progsters.
