Various Artists - City Music Tokyo

"Penthouse glitz, exquisite studio smarts sophisticated pop pleasures"

A glorious 2LP (/2CD) gatefold double album resplendent with OBIs featuring some of the best examples of, until recently, a very underrated genre… now of course, it's the hippest sound around.

Curated from the extensive Nippon Columbia catalogue by Japanese renaissance man Cunimondo Takiguchi, this compilation chronicles the hottest cuts from the most innovative originators of the City Pop genre. It's the best bits from 70s and 80s funk, soul, disco, AOR, R&B and Pop; Tokyo's tastiest cocktail. Add to this Gearbox's famed high production values and quality control, and you have an early contender for Compilation of 2024.


• Double vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve with OBI strip.
