Flower Travellin' Band - 1972 - Made In Japan

Flower Travellin' Band is a Japanese heavy psych outfit that was first active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The band was initially started as a side-project by Yuya Uchida when he returned to Japan after visiting his friend John Lennon in England in the mid 60s, where he was introduced to various upcoming artists such as Cream, and Jimi Hendrix. Yuya wanted to introduce their work to a Japanese audience, and formed the "Flowers" as a cover band with various group sounds musicians, and two vocalists; male singer Chiba Hiroshi, and female singer Remi Aso. They released an album titled Challenge! in 1968, featuring covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, and Big Brother and the Holding Company, in addition to an original song. They became friends with the Canadian band Lighthouse, and after meeting Paul Hoffert of Lighthouse at the Expo 70 festival in Osaka, they relocated to Canada where they performed with artists such as Dr. John, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. While in Canada they recorded their second original album Made In Japan and signed a deal with Atlantic Records. Due to Wada becoming ill, drummer Paul Devon plays on some tracks on this album. The lyrics are all written by Yoko Nomura, the wife of the band's manager.
