Takeshi Terauchi - The Blue Jeans' Complete Collection + The World Is Waiting For Terry

Seems like the Terry shares generate the most hits to my blog, so I'll put up a few more albums. I read about Terry in the Incredibly Strange Music magazine. Jello Biafra was raving about him, and I thought I absolutely have to find and check him out. I could not find his albums online at the time; that must've been before WFMU put up his albums, and for some reason Soulseek did not help, either. The only mention I could find is that San Francisco Japanese Consulate had his CD in their library. So I actually went to the city, found the consulate (downtown, 22nd floor, with a Bay Bridge view, gotta be seen to be believed), registered with the library, checked it out and ripped it. Voila!
The CD had the titles in japanese, so the titles are somebody's translation and my subsequent edits (i.e. I had to figure that "10th street murder" is actually "Slaughter on 10th Avenue" and so forth). It's a Best-Of, with selections from several albums - for instance, the first two are from Let's Go Classics, Tsugaru is from his Shamisen covers LP etc.

The other one I don't have much info about, so I'll quote: [The Bunnys'] 3rd LP, The World is Waiting for Terry, contains Moanin’, a rippin’ toe-tapping instrumental, along with covers like House of the Rising Sun, Night Train, and Blue Moon.

    Terry is absolute genius - it's such a pity that they're both at such awful bitrates.
