Tokedashita Glass Bako 溶け出したガラス箱 “Melting Glass Box” 1971 Japan Private Psych Acid Folk

The Jacks' drummer Kida Takasuke became, after he left the Jacks, involved in one of Japan’s legendary acid folk recordings, being the “Tokedashita Garasu Hako” (溶け出したガラス箱/ Melting Glass Box) which was released in 1970 on URC Records. The main player and concept mastermind originator of this venture was Nishioka Takashi (西岡たかし) who was initially not a musician but a man who provided artists with conceptual ideas. For this effort however, he sat behind the wheels of creation himself. 
The album turned out to be one of URC’s uncrowned acid folk and psychedelic rock products that embraced a surrealistic sound, which Nishioka himself referred to as being almost Dadaistic in nature. Next to him the other main participants in the creation of this album were Kida Takasuke and folk singer Saito Tetsuo (斉藤哲夫). The three of them formed the main forces of the Tokedashita Garasu Hako unit and called in, during the recording of their sonic master plan, the help of some friends to assist them such a............ guitarist Kato Kazuhiko(加藤和彦), Apryl Fool and Happy End key figure Hosono Haruomi (細野春臣), Blues Creation guitar mangler Takeda Kazuo (竹田知夫) and bassist Saeki Masashi (佐伯正志), perfuming the overall atmosphere of the recording session with the scents of avant-garde and experimental components............
