Taku Sugimoto - Opposite (1998)

By popular request, I give you... even more Taku Sugimoto (杉本拓)! (For the other ones, check links in the previous post, and let me know if anything needs to be reuploaded.)
Considered by many to be his masterpiece, released on that ephemeral HatHut offshoot Hat Noir, this was a one-time edition of 2000 copies, which you'd think is quite a lot for this artist, but this album has become surprisingly rare over the years. Oh, I just noticed I tagged this as 1997, but it was actually released in 1998; please correct that when you download it, and before you start spreading it on, lest the Schwebeablaut good name of properly tagged files be forever sullied.
Sugimoto's most listenable album, consisting of 25 tracks of meditative solo guitar (some electric, some acoustic), is yours for the taking - don't dawdle!
New link.


  1. Ouch, track 12 should obviously be titled 'Transylvania'... forgot what I said about properly tagged files -_-

  2. Still blown away that this was never re-issued.

  3. Would you happen to have TORI?

  4. Can you upload it please : )

  5. As far as 3 years passed, you still doing a much happy soul sharing this!
