The Phil Spector of Japan

That's what they call Eiichi Ohtaki in his native land. . .even though, to the best of my knowledge, he's never been charged with any crime. Here is: what he sounds (link for a limited time only) like (dig those crazzzy castinets); where you can read more about him; where you can buy.

His LP Long Vacation (1981) was the first CD (1982) issued in Japan. No doubt he will be seated front row center, six hours from now---8 pm 8/30 Japan time---when Brian Wilson commences his blitz four Smile concert tour of Tokyo and Nagoya Japan.
