Artist: FLOWER TRAVELLIN BAND
Title: Anywhere (Grey Vinyl)
Format: LP + CD
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Phoenix Records present a reissue of Flower Travellin Bands debut album Anywhere, originally released in 1970. Anywhere is the first album from the legendary Japanese rockers fronted by Yuya Uchida. Although an album consisting mainly of cover versions, Anywhere still exhibited many of the musical traits that were to come to the fore on the bands next release, the classic 1971 album Satori (ASH 3002CD/LP), an album of original material delivered with panache by the increasingly confident Uchida. An album made memorable by its risque cover as well as its ground-breaking approach to Western rock music. 180 gram grey color vinyl; Original LP artwork; Includes original Japanese insert; Includes CD." - Phoenix.

Title: Made In Japan
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Following critical acclaim but meager record sales in their native Japan after their superb debut album, Satori (ASH 3002CD/LP), Yuya Uchida and his Flower Travellin Band decamped to Canada following an invitation to open for local jazz-rock outfit Lighthouse. While there, Lighthouse leader and keyboard player Paul Hoffert offered to produce the bands next studio album, the ironically-titled Made In Japan, originally released in 1972, although it must be said, Hofferts musical vision didnt always reflect the bands. However, Uchida was particularly happy with the results; although again, critical acclaim didnt translate into significant record sales and the band duly parted company following their half-live/half-studio release, Make Up (ASH 3033CD). Housed in a gatefold sleeve with slip case and original LP artwork. Digitally remastered. Hand-numbered edition of 1000 copies." - Phoenix.

Title: Make Up
Format: Double CD
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"When released in 1973, Make Up, with its incredible faux-leather imitation attaché case outer bag, looked every bit the last word in over-the-top packaging and now originals, complete and in good condition, fetch hundreds of dollars in the collectors market. However, despite the lavish packaging, Make Up did little to enhance the groups already considerable reputation and the various band members went their separate ways immediately after the albums release. Although the album has been described as "inconsistent," there are some definite stand-out tracks, and generally Make Up reflects the varied influences that the band drew on throughout their sadly short career. This double album consists of both live and studio recordings and features keyboardist Nobuhiko Shinohara. 2CD housed in a replica outer slip-case and deluxe gatefold sleeve, including the original LP insert. Numbered, limited edition." -Phoenix

Title: Satori
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
New 2016 repress. "Deluxe LP format; 180 gram pressing. Reissue of the second Flower Travellin Band album, originally issued by Atlantic Records in Japan in 1971. Satori is a conceptual hard rock/psych album driven by Hideki Ishimas furious guitar licks which erupt and explode over the harmonic heart beat of the drums and bass. Yamanakas banshee-like vocal style turned him into an occidental Iggy Pop or Robert Plant while the band itself was rapidly becoming Japans answer to Led Zeppelin. Satori is a huge album in every way. From power chords to Eastern-tinged North African six-string freak-outs and crashing tom-toms, the band flexes its collective muscle from start to finish. In short, this is a real rock classic of the type they simply dont make any more.” - Phoenix.

Title: Satori
Format: CD
Label: Radioactive
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Possessing the vision to select Akira Joe Yamanaka as their vocalist, the Flower Travellin boys elevated themselves above other Japanese bands of the time, whose efforts were largely confined to imitating British and American bands of the era. Satori , which was released in 1971, is a conceptual hard rockpsych album driven by Hideki Ishimas furious guitar licks which erupt and explode over the harmonic heart beat of the drums and bass and Yamanakas banshee-like vocal style which was turning him into an occidental Iggy Pop or Ozzy Osbourne while the band itself was rapidly becoming Japans answer to Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. Satori is a huge album in every way. From power chords to Easterntinged North African six string freak-outs and crashing tom-toms, the band flexes its collective muscle from start to finish." - Radioactive.
