DVD jacket + lyrics and discography update

The "kaitai yoeko show" DVD's art cover was recently published through some webstores, so I did a quick update on its information at Discography! As you can see here. I'm still waiting for the official tracklist to be announced, but as far as we know, it's going to pack the entire setlist as well as the promotional video for "naranai piano", as posted previously. The cover art is pretty simple yet so Yoeko. It brings a self-portrait of Yoeko dressed just like the Kaitai Yoeko tour performances. Now that we are less than one month far from the release date, we are getting more information little by little, and I'll post them here as soon as I got any! Look forward it!

"fujin'you" lyrics
I've added lyrics in romaji for 9 (from 10) tracks on "fujin'you" album. The track "doki no uta" is an instrumental.

08 doki no uta

PS: okaerinasai, as reported out of print in this post, is available again for order at audio-grafico website!! (doesn't ship outside Japan, though..)

"naranai piano" PV + "shohousen/jewelry" chakuuta

Yoeko's official website at BabeStar label has recently announced the promotional video of "naranai piano" will be featured in the "kaitai yoeko show" DVD, due to the many fan requests and because this was the only PV not included in "the☆kyouken hit parade" DVD, released on July 25th, 2007. This is the only PV that will be included on the DVD.

Also, the two new songs from "shuugakushou" (released on September 17th 2008) will be available for Chakuuta (songs downloadable from japanese cellphones) from 8/25 on, they are "shohousen/jewelry". A special cover art was made for it also. They can be downloaded from (available only in Japan).

"kaitai yoeko show" dvd available at CDJapan

This morning I received an email from CDJapan saying my favorite artist has a new release. Yes, the "kaitai yoeko show" made it to CDJapan/Neowing, a new choice for us, customers outside Japan, to have this brilliant DVD release. What is really interesting about it, it's that CDJapan/Neowing wrote a new review about the release, with more details:

2 years from dismantling (kaitai). Due to the many signatures and petitions done, finally the full Yoeko Kurahashi last live will be materialized into a DVD!! The musical selection was made from her famous pieces born from a 8-year career, masterpieces included! Yoeko Kurahashi's new song "jewelry" included in her last album/best "shuugakushou" are included. The song she's said "the first song written for someone" composed after the retirement decision "rondo" is included, and yet the rare songs "jitensha" and "lemon cake" will be included. Compositions from the indies era which are already out of print are there also! The PV proud of 520,000 views on NicoNico Douga/Youtube "yona yona yona" is included. Photos from all the 6 places where "kanshateki kaitai yoeko tour" was held+Yoeko Kurahashi's commentary mini-magazines will be in the booklet.

So, it's the complete concert indeed, in a 2discs DVD with a running time of 160 minutes.

Pre-order outside Japan available at: CDJapan (¥7,619), HMV (¥6,321), (¥5,638)

Although Amazon is the cheapest between them, it carries the most expensive shipping (at least to my place, Brazil). HMV is the cheapest overall for me, but CDJapan has lots of discount coupons campaigns which might be worth it!

"kaitai yoeko show" dvd 3rd bonus announcement + lyrics update

So, it looks like Yoeko Kurahashi's label website is announcing the last live DVD features weekly, this time they came up with the 3rd series of bonus. It's going to be 2 mini-magazines that were released previously on 2007 and 2008, with the release of "iroiro" and "shuugakushou", respectively. The 1st one "aru onna no ikikata" (a woman's way of life), talks about Yoeko's musical directions and life, the 2nd "aru kashu ga haigyou suru made" (a singer's retirement) is the continuation and talks about her trajectory from debut until the retirement. Both of them are written by herself and resemble the old Showa (Japanese era until 1989) publications.


[3rd featured bonus announcement]
•mini-magazine "aru onna no ikikata"
•mini magazine "aru kashu ga haigyou suru made"

"rei" lyrics
I've added lyrics in romaji for 5 (from 7) tracks on "rei" album. Unfortunately, I couldn't find kanji sources of the song "anata no atashi", and the track "kyouken" is instrumental.

You can either access them through lyrics > rei or through lyrics > search by title feature.
