Cat: PSI 0041. Rel: 12 May 16
Psych/Garage Rock
  1. Benzaiten (God Of Music & Water) (3:33)

  4. Benzaiten (reprise) (11:32)
  5. Whoma (Immortality) (11:32)
Review: Originally released in 1974, 'Benzaiten', created by psych-obsessed Japanese auteur Kitajima, is a piece with prodigiously enduring appeal - mixing traditional Japanese folk with something akin to krautrock - atmospheric, celestial and still sounding fresh even thirty-two years on. Naturally, mixing traditional music and rock can frequently walk a perilous tightrope between breathless inspiration and gauche folly, but its testimony to Kitajima's talents that 'Benzaiten' - bereft of the new age influences of his later work - can take its place alongside 'Parallel World' by Far East Family Band and Takehisha Kosugi's 'Catch Wave' as an essential Japanese experimental record of the '70s.
