Rashomon / 羅生門

I’ve covered Takeshi “Terry” Terauchi beforeTwice, actually.

Terry Terauchi was the king of Eleki – instrumental music heavily influenced by The Ventures. The name is taken from the Japanese for “electric guitar”. By the early 70s, Takeshi Terauchi & The Blue Jeans were doing albums of Western Classical music and popular film songs. But in 1972, Terauchi released six albums. One was a tribute to Akira Kurosawa‘s 1950 classic film Rashomon / 羅生門..This single is the title track from the album – all of which is just as mind blowing. 

Catalog number BS-1599 on King Records of Japan, released 1972.
