Watanabe Marina "Birthday Boy" (7"), Hiyajo Atsuko "maware maware" (7")

Part of Konishi Yasuharu's 7" single project that aims to release J-Pop songs that he had been wanting on 7" for his DJ sets, here are two more that made it to record shop shelves just recently.

The first is Watanabe Marina's "Birthday Boy" and "Night and Sundial" (Japanese title "yoru to hidokei"), both produced by Ozawa Kenji after the split-up of Flipper's Guitar and before he moved on to his solo career. Both were originally included on her "Happy Birthday ep" CD (1992).

The other one is of singer Hiyajō Atsuko, containing the album version of her 4th single "maware maware" and for B-side 3rd single "Sweet Rhapsody". Both were part of album "sasayakareta yume no hanashi" (1999).

Like the Pizzicato Five 7"'s released in February, both were mastered by Bernie Grundman and pressed by Rainbo Records (U.S.).
