Originally released in 1974. "Somewhere between The Doors and Santana, the fuzzy soul of 3 + 3 period Isley Brothers and the poppy English prog rock of Pete Banks-period early Yes and The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other-period Van Der Graaf Generator, is this romantic, soul-influenced album Ishoku-Sokuhatsu (trans. "Dangerous Situation"). This album is progressive pop music similar to that of solo Todd Rundgren or even The Zombies' experimental LP Odessey & Oracle." --Julian Cope, Japrocksampler; "Yonin Bayashi was originally formed in 1970 with Kasutoshi Morizono (guitar and vocals), Kazuo Nakamura (bass) and Daiji Okai (drums). They introduced themselves as 'The San-Nin' (three-piece band) at that time. In early 1971, keyboard player Hidemi Sakashita joined and they became 'Yonin-Bayashi' meaning 'four-piece band' in Japanese. Ishoku-Sokuhatsu is their legendary first album and is a true Japanese hard psychedelic/progressive masterpiece." --Wayside Music; Features the original LP artwork, including the original Japanese insert.
