Casiopea - Eyes of the Mind (1981/2001) [Jap Mini-LP Ltd Edn 1st Press DSD Master]

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: J-Fusion
Release Date: 1981
Label: Alfa

If you have never heard Casiopea, you should. Especially if you are a jazz/fusion band. Casiopea is quite simply the tightest, most melodic jazz fusion band I have heard. If you like the original Yellowjackets album, you will love Casiopea.

Although this album is nearly thirty years old, it is probably one of the best the band's ever done. For those of you who are recording afficionados, the album was originally done on a 32 track digital recorder, which was unheard of in those days. Most bands are in the studio six months to a year making an album; Casiopea typically records an ENTIRE album in the studio over a two to six week period....
