Poss Miyazaki - Hawaiian Exotics


Time for some Japanese exotica with Poss Miyazaki and his Hawaiian All-Stars. Long time followers of the blog will remember some other postings from the Japanese King Records label. For the uninitiated SDS or Super Dynamic Sound was the Japanese answer to the Command Records Project 3 or Phase 4 hi-fi wonder-sound. As such you can read all about it (even which microphones were used) on the back cover.

As this is an Australian Festival pressing it's not the same as the original King vinyl, but nonetheless packs a fair audio punch. Lots of shimmering lap-steel guitar, some electone organ courtesy of Shiro Michi, a smattering of vibes and those Hawaiian all-stars singing some tasty choruses. Enjoy.
