Today’s digital prize is a delicious slab of Japanese prog/glam rock.  I bought this on vinyl when it came out in 1975 (yes, I’m ancient).  Today if you wanted a physical copy of this either on vinyl or cd the asking price starts at around $50.00.  Actually that price is worth it because this is a wonderful album.  It’s all in Japanese but don’t let that stop you.  The title of the album is Kurofune which translates to Black Ship.  This is a reference to the four warships that Commodore Perry took to Japan in order to gently asked for trading rights between Japan and the USA back in the 19th century.
