  • Obsure Sound by Chee Shimizu

    Hi, does anyone know if there's an English translation of this book? And where you could buy it?

    It's an amazing list of great vinyl records. This is an excerpt of the first two chapters:

  • #2

    presumably Amazon in other countries will have it sooner or later ...

    incidentally from that list of 115 on Discogs, I knew 3 ... is much cheaper ...
    "White paper inner sleeve is pristine ..."

      Had about a dozen of these. 80s Fusion still not my thing. Let's see how much I will kick myself in a few years
      All the Wolpertingers

        I know of about half a dozen of these as well - Obscure Music seems a pretty good title. Still, the one I do own (Edward Vesala - Nan Madol) is great stuff, so I'm intrigued.

          Looks interesting, and I like his genres - floating, meditative, organic etc, but without a translation, it's just a list of records, of which I have about 10 and recognised only a few more. Pricey copies available via
          Dave Lee Roth, I Too Am Running With This Devil Of Which You Speak (sic)

            This. That is why I asked for a translation. But it seems none exists. Shame, it's a great list of records. Like most here, the majority of which I'd never heard of, but the ones I checked out up until now are almost all very good.
