Samurai was a progressive rock outfit formed by singer Miki Curtis from the ashes of his Group Sounds outfit The Samurais. Always a chancer, Curtis cleverly hired two Engish rock musicians and future Free bass player Tetsu Yamauchi, thereafter recording two albums with this ensemble entitled GREEN TEA (1970) and KAPPA (1971).
The other Mickey Curtis album from this period is "Mimi", released on Vertigo in 1972.
