Various - For Lovers Only: 45s Collection from T.K. (Limited) LP



'Hiroshi Nagai, the illustrator known for his tropical and clear artworks for Eiichi Otaki's 'A LONG VACATION' and 'NIAGARA SONG BOOK,' curated tracks from T. K. RECORDS. As a vinyl junkie and soul surfer, he has been a fan of the label for years. The artwork of the album was created by Nagai himself.

'In 1974, I discovered T. K. Records when I heard 'Rock Your Baby' by George McCrae on FEN (Far East Network). I bought the LP at Melody House on Takeshita Street in Harajuku. Previously, a year prior, I bought Philly Soul records from PIR while visiting the United States. However, I preferred T. K. due to their Florida and Caribbean-inspired image. Moreover, I appreciated the brightness of their sound. I had a 'Favorite Single Disc Chart' with Teruhiko Yumura in the magazine 'SOUL ON' at that time, and I have been collecting 7-inche singles ever since. This time, I made two compilation albums: 'For Lovers Only,' featuring sweet soul tracks, and 'Party Freaks,' a collection of funky tunes that capture the flow of my actual DJ sets and the feeling of making mixtapes. I hope you enjoy the world of the T. K. Miami sound. ' Hiroshi 'Penguin Joe' Nagai'
