        5       omaeha heart breaker 
        6       kikiaki 
        7       secret track

Up until now the partnership that has been forged between Studio Mule and Johnnyís
Disk Record has produced a slew of superb Japanese jazz reissues. However, for the
latest edition the Mule Musiq offshoot have opted to re-press an LP that is something
of an anomaly in the JDR catalogue. Atsuma Mo Samusam, a super-duper-rare 1984 record
from King Kong Paradise, has just as much reggae, Balearia and new-wave in it as it
does the jazz-fusion of King Kong Paradise's other albums. Think Second Circle and
Beats In Space.
