En effet. :)

"Furaibo" was already covered by Moritaka Chisato on the wonderful Hosono-produced "This Summer Will Be More Better" CD - I can't imagine what Kahimi Karie will do with it...and I presume "Vagabond" is Vagabond Suzuki? Thanks for the English-language info, Chipple-san!

Glad you like it Ron! :)
And yes I would think Vagabond is bassist Vagabond Suzuki.

No, Vagabond was a daisyworld label artist and is not Vagabond Suzuki. I notice on the V.A. "Strange flowers he was billed as "Vagabond c.p.a."

The 1997 Chipmunks tribute xmas single collaboratrion with Hosono "Who Wants the Hula-Hoop" to me is the best known release. I don't think I've ever seen "the Old Music Master" (daisyworld, 1999)

Good catch! Thanks for the info!

I wonder why they didn't include the recent version of "cue" done by Cornelius, it's perfect to my ears.
