Jack all
For Jacks lovers everywhere, all of their recorded output, including some beautifully recorded radio sessions can be found on their box set, Legend - 40th Aniversary. This is an amazing set, with all of the non-LP singles plus the two official Lp's and the afore mentioned radio sessions LP, all in beautifull clear sound. Just pop over to Japan or Amazon.jp, (cheaper than flying but less fun) and order; you will not be disappointed.

Hello

very interesting information, but I have a question

who is the one on the cover of the album and single? is this Juni Lush? or Junio Nakahara?

I saw the album cover of The Helpful Soul, and there also appears a man with afro hairstyle, is this Junio Nakahara?

Hopefully I can clear my doubts, because I think that is on the cover of the album, The Helpful Soul, is Nakahara and that is the same as the album cover of Too much and the single, but the text mentions that it is Juni lush that has the afro.

or both had afro? that in the photo of the band there is only one

I hope is not a nuisance.
thank you very much.

rip-off?
The CD version of "Opera Based on the Works of Tadanori Yokoo" is not a rip-off in any way, so long as it comes as the reissue from Bridge Records.

Not only a faithful reproduction of the original double LP, it has a new essay included by Yokoo, and aside from the absence of picture discs as they would be in vinyl, it is (I daresay) a more robust package.

Distant voices
Sorry, I said it had a red label, in fact it's an orange label. Excuses.

Distant Voices
The Picture of the sleeve is not the LP but the CD. The LP has an insert but not an obi. Distant Voices (Columbia YX-7085-N). The record has a red columbia label.

I'm [not] Dead
I hadn't read the bio here, but I want to make it clear that Mr. Yokoo is not dead.

Also, if you order anything from his official site/store, (including the fantastic Bridge Records "Opera" reissue) he will kindly autograph and personalize it, from beyond the grave, no less!
