Nowhere in the world is the quality of the recording and audio format more important than in Japan, where physical sales are still way ahead of streaming and downloads. These are recordings where utmost care and traditional recording values combine with the latest in technology in an attempt to realise the ultimate in sound. If terms and equipment such as 2 track/76cm/sec, 24 channel multi-recorder (Studer A-820) 192khz/24 bit, 5.1 formula, Shure SM-57, B&K 4006, CMC-52S/Neumann U-87 Aix, K2 Super Coding, rubidium electron oscillator, vacuum tube and Blumlein arrangement mean something to you, then this is for you. If not, then simply enjoy the pure live sounds of traditional taiko drums, shakuhachi and shamisen, the sonic architecture of Geinoh Yamashirogumi, Balinese gamelan, Chinese crickets, a festival, and from the US Water Lily Acoustics label, Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt. Even as an mp3 you might just be amazed. Full track listing http://www.farsidemusic.com/radio/111017_tracks.html
