A compilation cassette of popular Japanese songs from the 1920s and 1930s.

Death Is Not The End:

"Emerging during the early stages of the recording industry in Japan, the ryū kōka style adopted western classical, blues & jazz elements into traditional and classical Japanese music.

This collection of 1920s & 30s ryūkōka recordings follows on from the Kouta Katsutaro tape we put out a couple of years back, and further captures the hauntingly unique sound of a cultural merging that was starting to reflect itself via popular song, ahead of the widespread influence of western pop music during post-war US occupation.
