Wewantsounds continues its Akiko Yano reissue series with the release of the singer's third studio album, recorded in New York and originally issued in 1978 in Japan. It follows her cult Iroha Ni Konpeitou LP and retains a similar blend of Japanese pop and New York funk. To Ki Me Ki features such musicians as Rick Marotta, Will Lee and David Spinozza and also programmer Hideki Matsutake who would soon join the YMO with Akiko for their international 1979/1980 tour before she recorded her next studio album Tadaima that year, featuring the Yellow Magic Orchestra (Haruomi Hoson, Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto).

To Ki Me Ki is reissued outside of Japan for the first time, remastered in Tokyo by revered engineer Mitsuo Koike and featuring original artwork by Tsutomu Murakami with 4 page colour insert and new liner notes by Paul Bowler. — (via Bandcamp, Wewantsounds)
