Singer Gallantique Kazue has a new 7" out now! The two songs were selected from her ongoing cover EP series "Anthology" that began last year (a 5th one is coming on May 31), consisting of covers of kayō̄kyoku from the 70's and 80's.
The A-side is "Chigasaki Memory" (originally sung by Horie Mitsuko, released in 1983), and the B-side is "My Jewelry Love" (originally sung by Daichi Mao, released in 1980). The whole "Anthology" series so far features a back band that includes four members of Sally Soul Stew — Nakayama Tsutomu (keyboards), Sally Kubota (bass), Nakamori Yasuhiro (guitar) and Shirane Kenichi (drums) — with also Itani Takashi (percussion) and Matsumoto Kenichi (sax, flute).
A live show will be held on Friday May 26 at Minami-Aoyama Mandala with the same band members. Details here.
