News: Yasuo Inada & Bemi Family to be reissued in March!

Thanks to a tip from our friend and Gnosis mate Nobuhisa in Tokyo, we learned that the very obscure Japanese album "Kankaku Shikou" by Yasuo Inada & Bemi Family will be reissued on March 1. The label behind this endeavor is called Bridge, which is a new label for us, but apparently has a quite a presence in Japan. We are clearly in a Renaissance time for reissues of Japanese indigenous underground rock albums of the early 1970s!

Be sure to read our original entry, with excellent insights from Shige over at Prog Not Frog. In the comments, you'll see Nobuhisa's remarks as well.

Here's the label blurb, translated from its original Japanese by Google, and so it's a complete and total mess. But I think you can figure out most of this (it appears the title of the album means "sense"):
