Yeah Yeah Time in Olde Roppongi
You just can't go wrong with a Japanese compilation album featuring a dancer doing the twist on the cover. Picked this up at my Japan CD "local" yesterday. If WFMU doesn't have a copy in their music library, they're missing out. There's even a track, "Ginza Rockin,'" by Kurosawa star (Ran, Kagemusha) Tatsuya Nakadai. Compilation produced by Comoesta Yaegashi, who was also responsible for recordings by the great Tokyo Panorama Mambo Boys, and a gazillion other compilation albums. Here's a sample (mp3 link for a limited time only) of this compilation, Tokyo Beatniks, vol. 1.
