Monica Lassen & The Sounds LP – Woman!! (1970)

This awesome record is one of those LPs that you’ll never want to part from after listening to it. For good reasons, it’s got everything you need : beat, funk, bossa, organ grooves, drum breaks and female moaning. The sound is great and the production of quality. Japan-only of course.

For the story, I discovered this LP at Contort Bar in Osaka where I went to DJ with my friend Taizo. The (late) bartender and owner showed me a few LPs (including this one) and asked me if I knew any of them. I said no but I was so impressed by the sound and the beauty of this particular record that I went straight looking for copies. I managed to find a few and sold/traded all of them to DJ friends and collectors. I never stopped trying to find other copies as this is one of my favorite Japanese records.

What more is to say apart from : have a listen if you don’t know this beauty.
