The Westliners LP – Come Together! (1969)

This is my second copy of this very rare LP by top Japanese jazz band The Westliners. The band is lead by drummer Takeshi Inomata and other members include :

Alto Saxophone – Shigeo Suzuki, Piano, Organ – Norio Maeda, Electric Bass – Tatsuro Takimoto, Guitar – Sadanori Nakamure, Producer – Fujiya Jimbo, Tenor Saxophone – Ichiro Mimori, Trumpet – Tetsuo Fushimi.

Expect a lot of heat : drumbreaks, loops and cracking versions of rock and soul classics. Production is superb and the condition of this copy, despite (quite groovy) inner sleeve marks, is near pristine.

Listen here and there to a selection of tracks.


VG++ record (clean labels, inner sleeve marks that don’t affect play, some tics and pops during quiet moments). EX gatefold cardboard sleeve. No obi.
