LARSEN proudly presents a double tribute EP to the Eleki, the japanese answer to the US instrumental invasion in the early sixties. At first very influenced by the Ventures, Yuzo Kayama and Takeshi Terauchi became the guitar heroes of Japanese surf and were even covered by the Ventures themselves. Here you find 2 master pieces of this exciting style (including the Kayama’s best known instrumental, “Black Sand Beach”), perfectly played by the french combo, L’Orchidee d’Hawai. And they also deliver us 3 originals in this melodic, funny & unique style : Eleki !!
1. Watari Dori (Yoshio Tabata)
2. Black Sand Beach (Yuzo Kayama)
3. Kyoto-Ga (l’Orchidée d’Hawaï)
