Crazy Ken Band's new album "Hong Kong Taxi" consists mainly of self-covers of songs first written for other artists. Included are songs first sung by Nagisa Yōko, Wada Akiko, SMAP, and many others. Also included are a few rare songs written with pre-CKB bands Duck Tales and Cools, and brand new song "Motomachi burabura".
The song "T-jirō" appeared in a TV drama where it was sung in duet by Koizumi Kyōko and Nakai Kiichi, though an episode featured Yokoyama Ken and Nomiya Maki singing it on stage. Maki is featured on this album singing once again this song in duet.
The limited edition comes with a bonus DVD of two video clips and making-of footage.
A Japan tour will begin on August 27, stopping at Nakano Sun Plaza on October 9, and at the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall on October 29 and 30.
