Shintaro Katsu - Evening Ballads LP (RSD 2022 Japan)

Regular price $62.99

Shintaro Katsu may be better known as an actor or director, than a singer.  He was in numerous classic movies, such as Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo, where he appear alongside Toshiro Mifune. He directed subsequent Zatoichi films and a TV show as well.  This means it squarely falls in the actor that released albums getting RSD repressing format.  But still, this is a lot of fun with Katsu bringing his excellent baritone to a classic songbook. 

Japanese mono TOP WANT board composed of Western music cover, finally LP recurrence! !! The LP work, in which Shintaro Katsu sings standard songs in mellow and hard-boiled, is finally a regular reprint from "Daiei Record", which has gained tremendous support from Japanese mono fans for most of the catalog. 7inch (including "Sunny / Summer Time") reprinted as a limited edition of Record Store Day is also sold out immediately. From Kayokyoku collectors to Katsushin fans to Japanese mono DJs, this is one of Showa Kayo's most rare and original editions that has fascinated many lovers, so please add it to your collection.
