I met Yujiro coming out of Disk Union Shimokita as I was walking in. He was on his way to play a gigi with his band, “Blue Damp”, but stopped to pick up a copy of George Smith’s – Oopin’ Doopin’ Blues Harp before heading there. I wasn’t familiar with George Smith (I have a feeling I’m gonna not be familiar with 90% or more of what I photograph here on Tokyo Record Style) but I did mention owning a handful of harmonicas including a chromatic one, the kind with the button on the side that seems to make playing it with any prowess at all infinitely more complicated. I admitted to Yujiro that I couldn’t really play it, but he said he couldn’t really either.

I just listened to the title track off this CD. It’s boogies like crazy. Link be. Thanks for posing for me Yujiro! Hope you had a good show!
