One of my father's colleagues dropped by to say hi and give him boxes of promotional material. Included are 4 CDs - one with Dutch classical music from Sweelinck to Andriessen (so covering from 16th to 20th century), one contains string quartets from Niels W. Gade (never heard of him, 1817-1890) and a classic sampler that has music from Orlando di Lasso to Carl Orff, so that's another sampler with a wide span.
And the fourth one has a contemporary (read - 1996) selection of Japanese pop. Unfortunately there was no CD in the jewelcase, but I looked up the tracks separately. The titles appear to be off.

Kix-s - "Love In My Life" or a similar title since this was translated.

Ken Muramatsu - Summer Lament The track title is named "Evening calm in the eyes" but I couldn't find that, so here's something by the same author

Gontiti - Dirac in Zoo Also Black Ant's Life and History of Island by the same artist. Advertised in the booklet as: "The Most Comfortable Music On Earth: Gontiti is instrumental acoustic guitar duo made up with Gonzalez Mikami and Titi Matsumura. Gontiti has already released 14 albums in Japan and some of them have released in over sea countries. Gontiti made many concerts all over the world such as Ney York, New Port, Hawaii, Paris, Firenze, Bari Islands and so on. Gontiti is timeless. Gontiti is visual. Gontiti is international. Listen to Gontiti and find your vacance time in Gontiti!

Coba is an accordeon player. Had a bit of a hard time finding his work. Couldn't find the Appetito that is on the disk but I did find his rendition of Libertango which made me reach for any other Libertango.

Mikako Honya - Lunacia

HAL FROM APOLLO '69 - hal from heaven. Hal from heaven is the title.

Four songs by Harumi Tsyyuzaki are on this album. Of these I could only find Time

Shakura soundtrack by Tooru Takemitsu. I hope that's the one at least.

Bridge to the Moon Hiroshi Oguchi and Alan Merrill

I couldn't find their song "Cry Over You" but here's The Girl Can't Help It by Duke & The Summits.

Then there are some songs by Regine. One is "My sweet home" and the other is "Just one more time" - and apparently there is a Philipino singer called Regine Velasquez who has songs by the same title.

Three songs by Hikaru Nishida: Go beep!, Go! Paradise and Omoide-ni tokenagara

I couldn't find "Funkaling" by Unlimited Edition. Here's the write-up in the CD booklet: "This unique pop jazz unit with 8 members was formed when intelligent bass player Tetsutaro Tamaki and Thomas Sawada met in 1992. Playing gigs at bases, clubs and halls in Okinawa and after few member changes they have now become the line up as it is now, 5 boys and 3 girls. The band was scouted during the street live performance in Shinjuku by Mercury Entertainment, and their major debut album "PLEASURE", intelligent yet catchy jazz pop music is about to strike the Japanese market.

Bonnie Pink - Scarecrow

Tomoyatsu Hotei - Poison. There's also a vid hovering around on Youtube where they play together with David Bowie at Budokan.

I couldn't find "Cold Rain" but here's Tsunematsu Matsui - In The Maze

I didn't have much luck with "Sweet girl parade" but here's some by the same artist, Kumiko Yamashita

Third in a row I couldn't find: Bonnet by Hiroyuki Hanada. But here he is live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiD_n64j730

"Why Goodbye" by Keizo Nakanishi with Wendy Moten

The last one is "My Christmas Coloring Book" but without artist names I cannot look it up.

Went to the second-hand-shop and came back with:
Okadan Acoustic Selection. Bought purely since it is Japanese. Now listening to "undaa ze bowa.." (under the boardwalk). Relaxing music though.

The Immortal Coil - The Dark Age Of Love.
Haven't played it yet but when I opened it at the shop it named DAAU as contributing artists. Mind you it's DAAU after Buni Lenski's parting, and I'm not too fond of their work without violin. We'll see...

Had a good second-hand store raid (5 CDs for 3 euros) and found, besides a computer game, Alice In Chains (selftitled album) and three albums by Sugizo, a Japanese electrical violinist . The albums are called Tree Of Life, Flower Of Life and Vesica Pisces.

I liken second-hand stores, you can sometimes find real musical gems in them.

I knew Sugizo from this performance:

The CDs I have obtained are not bad at all but aside from guitars and violin it's electronic, and I just prefer real instruments.

Indeed, me too. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I had an opportunity to work with ZERO on their last album - Blather. I'm playing the baritone sax part on The World's Greatest Sinner, which you can barely hear. Kevin decided to bury it in the mix. Everyone I've played it to can barely hear it at all, but he just denies it. ZERO does have some good FZ covers, but the problem I have with it is that Kevin is a big prog rock fan and he just slathers his tracks with too much synth and uses big chunks out of old Yes and other classic prog rock bands. He has access to a fairly large group of good, diverse musicians - if I had that access I wouldn't be plastering my recordings with synths.

Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger. My sister likes them and turned out not to have it yet, so it was rehomed instantly.

No I thought it was rather noisy. My sister liked them and bought tickets to see them live, but the person who was supposed to come with her couldn't make it and she didn't manage to sell her extra ticket (they were expensive) so I decided to go with her. I remember the music was so loud it hurt my ears even in the foyer. Only concert I ever saw when I wore ear plugs.

Beefed up my classical collection thanks to some second hand shopping:

Proba me Deus - Contantijn Huygens (1596-1687) and contemporaries
Contains 29 songs of the late renaissance to early baroque by famed lute player, composer, poet, diplomat, polyglot and architect and Father Of Another Genius Christiaan Huygens, Constantijn Huygens Sr.

Now is the Merry Month Of May
Renaissance and baroque compilation - ranges from Dufay to Albinobi so does span at least 2 centuries but I'll never tire of Dufay.

Muziek in de Nederlanden
Compilation of Netherlandish music of the 1700s, composers like de Fesch, Ruppe, Hellendaal, Ruloffs, and Focking's sonata in D for flute and basso continuo.

Magic, Myth & Music
Reader's Digest 2CD compilation because I can never have too many versions of Danse Macabre, with lots of equally evil-sounding well-known pieces, Flying Dutchman, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Night on the Bare Mountain, Witches' Sabbath...

Erwin Schulhoff - ensemble works
Contains selections from stage music, three tangos, concerto for string quartet and winds, and suite for chamber orchestra.

Astor Piazzola - Chador
With the good man himself on bandoneon.

Nice one, if you ever think of expanding - well it's like Zappa, you'll end up loving them all and I'm not sure if I can tell beforehand which one is the most dear, but in general the second (Frizzle Fry, from their old record label and a bit unpolished but many good songs), third (Sailin' the Seas of Cheese) and fourth (Pork Soda) and you'll have quite a few classics.

'Course, then there is Tales from the Punchbowl, with amazing songs like Professor Nutbutter's House of Treats, Southbound Pachyderm and Over the Electric Grapevine, and there's the Brown Album (named after the colour brown) with the warm drum sound and classics like Kalamazoo and Shake Hands With Beef, and there's Antipop that has its moments (I'll let Aqua do the advertising) , and there's the EP Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People with five great songs, and there's there's the cover EP Miscellaneous Debris, and there's the cover album Rhinoplasty with the best The THing That Should Not Be AND the best Scissor Man, and there's of course the live album that started it all, Suck On This...

Tell ya what, here have some:
