The Tigers - Comments
>Katsumi ‘Toppo’ Takahashi AKA Katsumi Kato

Katsumi 'Toppo' Kahashi aka Katsumi Takahashi

"Katsumi Takahashi" is his real name. He used it (Takahashi) only a short time after quitting Tigers.

>as did drummer Minotu Hitomi, who took the name Pea.

His nickname was spelled as "Pee".

>And on their final recordings, a double live LP entitled JIYU TO AKOGARE TO YUJO (FREEDOM, HOPE & FRIENDSHIP)

a double live LP is SOUNDS IN COLOSSEUM (Polydor, 1970) mentioned in "Discography".
FREEDOM, HOPE & FRIENDSHIP is their last studio album, and their last live album is Tigers Finale recorded at their farewell concert.

Don't mess with Harumi
In my humble opinion the Sethman's dim remembrances of this very unique album are way off. I suppose if you feel that Sgt.Peppers was the pinnacle of western music you might be a bit put off by this one but personally I'd take the glorious imperfections of this album over the Beatles any day. From the awesome one-note bass line and King of Cartoons horns on the first track to the final two side long freakouts (the at times very VU sounding guitars make one wonder who may have been sitting in on these sessions) this one deserves some recognition.
Eerie, beautiful and weirdly uplifting songs, gorgeous psychedelic gatefold.
I Took A Ride (In Your Caravan) was later covered by the Rotary Connection.
