• nippon girls 2  (180g red vinyl LP, £18.95)

    label: big beat

    Few guessed it would become one of Big Beat's top sellers of recent years, but that's exactly what happened to "Nippon Girls". With that in mind, they commissioned international girl-pop authority Sheila Burgel to compile a follow-up volume.  Former Tokyo resident Sheila also provides the notes, which expertly guide us through our second journey into the wild world of female pop and beat, Japanese style. The LP's heavy-duty gatefold jacket is sumptuously illustrated with rare items from Sheila's collection.  Two fabulous different covers make both formats a must buy.  Tracklisting: SIDE ONE 1.
