Unbelievable Sounds

Best record of 1984

Wow, Japan could have been the Smiths, Run DMC, or countless other great records I picked up here. But sitting in the jazz bars (no bands, just playing records) in Tsukuba, it was this reissue of Chet Baker that was everywhere. Chet Baker Sings I brought back with me. It only took about 10 years to catch on in the US, I guess I should have opened that record store? Think of the stuff that still hasn't caught on and its 20 years later.
