One of my favorite blogs is My Jazz World, which features a cut-and-come-again pudding of crazy late ’70s/early ’80s Japanese jazz records. A recent gem out of that shop is this truly bizarre concept album by Takanaka Masayoshi, about some goblins who plot to steal the colors of the rainbow in order to eat them (!).

I love the narration, straight out of some BBC children’s show, and Takanaka’s enthusiastic overuse of the talkbox. Such a winner.
