Takeshi Terauchi & The Blue Jeans "Rashomon" 1973 Japan Psych Rock,Surf Rock

Takeshi Terauchi & The Blue Jeans  "Rashomon" 1973  Japan Psych Rock,Surf Rock
full vk



First with his band The Bunnys and later with The Blue Jeans, guitarist Takeshi 'Terry' Terauchi covered many popular genres, from garage, frat-rock and surf guitar instrumentals, through sentimental ballads, via his own inimitable take on the popular classics; little known in the U.S., he is Japan's premier guitar hero. His style could be described as neo-surf: along with the traditional surf and respective sounds he was using the stylistics of true 70s rock, with fuzz guitar connected to the acid organ and impetuous drum solo. 
In 1972 the instrumental album Rashomon was released, where the main theme was written by Terauchi for Akira Kurosawa's same titled movie: a surf/psych cut with dark guitar and soaring flute - pretty exciting!...~




In the 60s guitarist Takeshi Terauchi (first with his band The Bunnys and later with The Blue Jeans) covered many popular genres, from garage and surf-rock guitar instrumentals, through sentimental ballads to his own inimitable takes on classical music. 
It has completely changed in 1972 with (almost) fully instrumental and truly fantastic "Rashomon" album - released by local King Records in nice, gatefold cover with two inserts. 
The music was partly inspired by famous Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon" movie from 1950, but also by the old Japanese melodies. It was a great surprise for many Terauchi fans, but also a huge disappointment for some of them. The album sold rather badly at the time, but today is considered as a true 70s rock masterpiece based on amazingly-sounded heavy fuzz guitar supported by acid organ, some soaring flute and busy drumming. 
In 1973 "Rashomon" was released in Germany by Telefunken in single cover....~
