Paul Mark - Kokeshi Shindig (1965)



Yes, this is strange. Very strange! Paul Mark was a Hawaiian-based Japanese guy who released several LPs on the local Sounds of Hawaii label and a couple for Imperial in the US. He already had two albums out with jazzified Japanese tunes, "East to West" and "Golden Melodies from Japan", but this one is different. Who thought, that the Japanese sing like the Chipmunks? Well, we all can imagine that and there have been several rumours, but... Just hear for yourself. If you want to crack a party or anti-socialize with your friends, this is THE record to put on your stereo. Please enjoy...
