NOTE: The only rip of this album I could find was in 128k. Anyone have a better version?


Here’s a nifty little item for Yellow Magic Orchestra completists and synth fetishists! Released the same year as the self-titled first YMO album.

Ryuichi Sakamoto – “The Thousand Knives of Ryuichi Sakamoto” (ZIP file)

    Wow! Thanks!
    Big fan of the page here.. I definitely don’t have this, but a big fan of YMO and Yukihiro Takahashi.
    As for Ryuichi I’ve most heard some of his cheesy 90s pop and more orchestral stuff, so it’s great to hear him solo in YMO synth funk awesomeness mode.
    Thanks again! Sorry I dont have a higher bitrate of this. Sounds good anyway.

    I too, second that request.
    Fantastical album.

    Haven’ listened to it yet so I hope it’s ok. 320 rip.

    For me the ultimate RS album is the brain-melting “Neo Geo,” but I’d have to pick this as my second favorite of his. What else can you say about a track called “Das Neue Japanische Elektronische Volkslied?!”

    I have that on CD I think. If I can find it, what bitrate do you want?
