Yukihiro Takahashi may not have had as prolific a solo career as the other two members of Yellow Magic Orchestra, but that’s a hard comparison to make as Hosono and Sakamoto are quite frankly freaks! Takahashi is certainly no slouch… His debut solo effort Saravah! is a city pop classic recorded in 1978 after Takahashi had just left Sadistic Mika Band and joined a young Yellow Magic Orchestra. The album sounds like “clubbing in Paris” with a sophisticated set of tracks touching on disco, funk, synth pop, ambient, french exotica, and bossa nova.
