For the first time ever on CD, Raven presents (on Double Disc format) two landmark albums by virtuoso Japanese instrumentalist / composer STOMU YAMASHTA. When Yamashta – best known for his blending of the avant-garde and rock music – moved to the UK in the early 1970s he signed to the prestigious Island label, recording a series of legendary (and out-of-print) albums that remain highly regarded among aficionados of progressive jazz fusion / space rock. Floating Music (recorded in 1972 with jazz ensemble Come to the Edge) and The Man from the East (1973, with Red Buddha Theatre) established his reputation as a performer and composer of impeccable technique and musical intelligence.

The Man from the East was the soundtrack to a fascinating theatre-piece he presented in Paris and London in 1972. Several of these songs (‘Poker Dice’, ‘One Way’, ‘Memory of Hiroshima’) appeared on the film soundtrack of The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) and have since attained mythical status among fans
