1 - FLOWER TRAVELLIN' BAND - ANYWHERE - (LP) 
KLIMT


LP with inside pocket / Japanese liner notes. A true cult band of the early 1970s, the Flower Travellin Band (initially called the Flowers) was started in 1969 by Yuya Uchida, who went on to become a major figure on the Japanese music scene. In the months leading up to his starting the band, Uchida had spent time in London visiting a good friend named John Lennon (who he had met during the Beatles Asian tour in 1966). During his stay in London he met a huge array of artists, including Cream and Jimi Hendrix, and returned home with the idea of bringing a similar sound to Japan. The band soon caused a stir in the media, not so much for their music (which at this early stage was made up mostly of covers), but for their shocking sleeve art, which in the case of this LP featured the naked band members riding low-rider motorcycles! Anywhere opens with a 52 second original intro followed by a freaked-out 15 min version of Muddy Waters "Louisiana Blues", followed by the Sabs "Black Sabbath" (probably the first cover of that song ever to appear on LP), "House of the Rising Sun" and King Crimsons "21st Century Schizoid Man", and then an original outro. It was not until their next album however, that Uchida would truly come into his own, penning his first LP of all original material (1971s Satori) and a true classic of the era.

PHOENX


First album from the legendary Japanese rockers fronted by Yuya Utchida. Although an album consisting mainly of cover versions,Anywhere still exhibited many of the musical traits that were to come to the fore on the bands next release, the classic Satori, an album of original material delivered withpanache by the increasingly confident Uchida. An album made memorable by its risque cover as well as its ground-breakingapproach to Western rock music.
