In Stock NOW: One of the “100 Greatest Japanese Rock Albums of All Time”



2021 UK/EU limited edition Life Goes On reissue 5-track vinyl LP of their highly regarded and much sought-after 1971 second album. The vinyl is UNPLAYED within the sealed gatefold picture sleeve.

Can you pick up a better iconic band than Japanese Flower Travellin’ Band? Have a look at Julian Cope’s Jap rock sampler cover with the band bare naked wildly ridin’ on their wheels. Is any description more appropriate? A sense of freedom has always enhanced their music, a heavy rock manifesto clearly informed by british stalwarts. Their second album Satori has been released on Atlantic Japan in 1971 and still is a masterpiece on its own. The band was made up of Joe Yamanaka (vocals) – possibly an eastern version of Rob Tyner MC5 – Hideki Ishima (guitars), Jun Kobayashi (bass) and George Wada (drums).

  1. I’m a couple of years short of 70 years old and I’ve been interested in Prog Rock since the late 1960’s. Yeti by AMON DUL 2 is one of the favourite albums in my collection – still in great condition. Thought I knew all there was to know about prog rock – so who on earth are/were this lot called FLOWER TRAVELIN’ BAND? Never heard of them! Still, they look and sound like they might have been quite good.
