Stomu Yamash'ta & The Horizon

Stomu Yamash’ta – percussion
Takehisa Kosugi – violin

Hideakira Sakurai – koto, shamisen, percussion

Stomu Yamash'ta & the Horizon was a supergroup formed in 1971 by the young percussionist prodigy Yamash'ta, with jazz keyboardist Masahiko Satoh and Taj Mahal Travellers' leader Takehisa Kosugi. The ensemble released only one LP on London Records, the highly-rare SUNRISE FROM WEST SEA LIVE. Indeed, I'd never even heard this record until recently, when the Seth Man furnished me with a copy. It's a highly restrained affair for the majority of the record, minor glimpses of Taj Mahal Travellers here and there, but mainly not much going on at all in a gagaku sort of style.

sunrise from west sea live.
this is a lovely record. In fact it doesn't sound like any other yamash'ta album. it's more like taj mahal travellers, east bionic symphonia or catch wave by takehisa kosugi. however, i'm glad i own a copy of this record. it's very rare.

Please share! seconded
Hello,
if you have a copy of this record and can rip it, please share with the on-line community. This Lp is very rare, and it looks like no one is in any hurry to reissue Yamash'ta's experimental rare early albums (Red Buddha excepted).
I would buy it if it does ever get reissued, but I don't want to wait years for that to happen.
Please help! I have been looking for it for a very long time, as I'm sure others have too.
