A Love Affair
Cat: PROT 7089.
  1. A Love Affair
  2. I Love You So
Review: If you're a fan of the glossy "City Pop" sounds that emerged from Japan in the early 1980s - a particularly gorgeous, neon-lit version of synth-pop that drew on many US soul, jazz-funk and boogie influences - then you need this "45" in your life. Both of the tracks were recorded by Junko Ohashi at different points in the early '80s but are famous for appearing on her now highly sought-after 1984 compilation Magical, which the cover art mimics. A-side 'A Love Affair' is the undoubted pick of the pair: a smooth, multi-coloured concoction that sees Ohashi singing sweetly over a blend of squelchy synth-bass, fretless bass, sparkling synthesizer chords, electrofunk flourishes, Teena Marie style Latin horns and cracking drum machine beats.

Review: Ohashi Junko was a real Japanese city pop specialist from the mid -70s onwards. She put put more than 15 albums and 20 Eps and 1983\s Point Zero is one of the most well loved. An original will cost you well over a hundred quid and for good reason: these sort of high energy disco sounds just cannot be slept on, with boogie, funk and soul all colouring the big, glossy grooves. Slower tunes like 'In Your Lovin' brim with slick city cool and the bright lights of a late night urban metropolis, while the strident 'Caught In A Shower' with its huge horn sections will get any floor in a spin. Once the party is over, soundtrack the comedown with sentimental jazz numbers like 'Perfect Melody' and you will round out a lovely evening in style.
