JUDY ONGG, Futari No Kisetsu, 1968

Because there are still a lot of blank spaces in my countries category, here are three records from Japan this week.

Judy Ongg is an actress, singer, author and woodblock-print artist from Taiwan. Born in Taipei in 1950, she graduated from university in Tokyo and after that, changed her nationality into Japanese. Her career has spanned more than four decades.

Judy Ongg is not doing Rock´n´Roll or Beat music on this record but it´s not too soft either. There is some nice guitar work on these tracks that sounds a bit like this song in this video:

Judy Onggs filmography lists a film called  Cyborg 009 from 1967. I don´t know if this animation film of the same name has anything to do with her but I still liked it enough to share it here:

The jacket, though printed on very thin paper, has a lot of inserts: dance instructions, lyrics and a nice inner sleeve. High production values used quite economically. I don´t know what dance the  dance instructions are for but I it might be the Shake, the Surf , the Jerk, the Loco-Motion, the Hitchhike, the Mashed Potato, the Pony or the Monkey.

Maybe not the Monkey, they don´t really monkey around…
