Nippon Columbia Records in Japan has been issuing some really obscure stuff on CD lately.  Their newest series is called “Dig Deep Columbia”, and it’s mostly Japanese jazz artists…but not entirely.

This is the current series:

FUNKY STEPS FUNKY STEPS / FUNKY STEPS 2, NIPPON COL JPN CD “Jazz Rock” 1974 / 1976 (2-on-1 CD)

INAGAKI, J. & HIS FRIENDS (FUNKY BEST) THIS IS DISCO SOUNDS, NIPPON COL JPN CD “Jazz / Funk” 1975

Ever heard of any of this stuff?  I sure hadn’t!  Everything is superbly recorded, too.  Nippon / Columbia didn’t mess around!  There’s mellotron on the Funky Steps albums!
