We have always had a special place in our hearts for Shoji Yokouchi’s Greensleeves. Standards, original tunes, and the title track are interpreted in breezy and surprisingly soulful ways. The ace guitarist is given immeasurable support by his band and guest organist Yuri Tashiro. Her playing is moody, fiery and funky: often at the same time! Impex’s Limited Edition vinyl reissue preserves the original’s clear, pristine sound (check out the bass on Yuri’s organ!) while improving surface noise and definition.
