This is what’s printed on the record bag from Banana Record, Yokohama, from where I scored a bagful of truly sublime soul-funk bargains today. Truer words surely never written – a mantra for all of us.
“Time is streaming like a river. But good music is always good music. Never changed. If you want to get the new thing, you should know the old one. This act doesn’t mean that go back to the past. Rather, when we throw away the difference between the real thing and the old thing, our sensitivity will be free and get new meaning. We are covered with ideal society. We have to discover our own world. I don’t find myself. But I find music. I reflect myself on the mirror which called music. I am music…”
This record – mint condition – cost me the equivalent of NZ$10.
