[Neoclassical] Concerto Moon / Norifumi Shima
#21
Sure thing! Also, just to be sure, Takao Ozaki was only on those three albums. There's also an album of re-recorded Concerto Moon songs that was released in 2001 with his successor, who's a bit raspier. The title is Destruction and Creation.

I think Rain Forest and especially the digipak version of From Father to Son are more affordable than the best copy of Fragments of the Moon.

Finally, although there are only a handful of songs, Live Concerto is also worth getting, but there's also the DVD version that you can get. This set was recorded just before the band issued their debut album. If and when you use a shopping service again, there are currently two original CD pressing selling at five dollars each. There's a 2008 reissue, but I have the original pressing that I paid very little for. It's a great collector piece.

Yeah I noticed they have a new singer these days. There are two recent albums on Spotify and I wasn't particularly impressed. Not that it was bad, it's just that I've heard proof that they can do much better. But I think that wasn't Ozaki's successor, but the next singer. Possibly even the one after that.

I have never used a shopping service to be honest. But I've found some true gems new or second hand in my own country, so I wouldn't exclude that possibility.

I was referring to Takashi Inoue, who was in the band until 2011. Atsushi Kuze is the current Concerto Moon vocalist since then. He's OK.

Shopping services are sometimes useful, but eBay and the like also carry Concerto Moon CDs pretty cheap.

Okay is definitely the best way to describe him. He can sing for sure, he's able to hold a note and if I hadn't heard Takao Ozaki before him, I may have been more positive, but it's just nothing special to me.

I don't know how long Concerto Moon was actually signed to LMP. It should not be too hard to get any late nineties releases from that label.

I would get the Vap pressings. I believe they should be the originals.

Also, the band's self-titled 2004 EP is selling at three dollars via Amazon.com. Smile

I know this makes me a bad collector, but I don't care about what type of pressings they are. If they're cheap and in good condition, I'll be a happy man Wink

Well Agonymph, given that I'm happy with digital-only, and throwing away my obi strips, I think I'm going to trigger collectors more than you ever could, not that I'm proud of it...

If I can get a better deal on a cd without the obi, I would do it. I guess my Dutch genes are stronger than my collectors genes Wink
