Review of Misora Reissue

From PopMatters:

Over the last two years, Light in the Attic Records has been releasing albums in their Japan Archival Series, running the gamut from new age and ambient to city pop and boogie.

Originally released September 1972, Misora is being reissued on LP and CD by Light in the Attic records in June 2019.

Light In The Attic’s Japan Archival Series continues withSachiko Kanenobu’s Misora, a timeless classic of intricate finger-picking, gently soaring melodies and rustic Laurel Canyon mysticism, produced by Haruomi Hosono and originally released in 1972 on URC (Underground Record Club), one of Japan’s first independent record labels. One of the most beloved works to come out of Japan’s 1960s-70s folk and rock scene, Light In The Attic’s forthcoming reissue marks the first time that Misora will be available physically in the United States.
