A TAV Essential Listening Album.

“Kazemachi Roman (Japanese: 風街ろまん Hepburn: Kazemachi Roman, literally "Wind City Romance") is the second album by Japanese folk rock band Happy End, released on URC Records in 1971. In this concept album, Happy End attempted to paint a musical picture of Tokyo before the 1964 Summer Olympics, through which sweeping changes transformed the city forever.” – Wiki

“Kazemachi Roman by Happy End is a radical LP, a concept project named best Japanese rock album of all time by Rolling Stone Japan, and heartily forward-thinking in its native country for its creators' insistence of all-Japanese lyrics after a decade of the Group Sounds scene making English the status quo in Japanese pop.” – All Music
