Reissue of Japanese artist Jun Fukamachi’s 1977 electric version of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. “This superbly crafted direct-to-disk features the versatile Fukamachi as a veritable one-man band in a lively album that captures the essence of the original Beatles’ tunes throughout. The innovative arrangements of the artist, tailored to get the maximum benefit from a surrounding instrument array, produce one of the better technical efforts of this series. Synthesizer effects provide special “flavor,” particularly at the close of “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” on side one, and in the evocative opening of “She’s Leaving Home” on side two. . . . Fukamachi blends a concert grand, electric piano, Arp synthesizer, glockenspiel, bass drum, tambourine and other electronic instruments with results that indicate a group, not a solo, with ample display of each.” –Billboard, September 9, 1978
