When Y.M.O. was active in the 80’s, even before the advent of the compact disc, I remember how the 3 members of Y.M.O. had so many solo records that it was nearly impossible to find out about and keep up with it.  Keyboard master Sakamoto-san continues apace, as this list today is only the last decade or so of his releases I have managed to find.

For fans of his song-based work – if you liked his 80’s albums, such as “Illustrated Music Encyclopedia” or “Futurista” the one I heartily recommend to you is “Chasm”, his 2004 album.  It didn’t get a full U.S. release, but I have found a promo-only U.S. CD for it.  I also got lucky finding a Japanese LP for it off of the internet for a very low price.

The “Life” opera CD’s have proved to be a bit of a tough listen for me, even with William S. Burroughs involvement.  Maybe if I had video of the event, it would make more sense to me?
