Description in Japanese

異邦人 / TAK MATSUMOTO featuring ZARD

「R.R.C.S.」リリース時から構想が練られていた邦楽カバー・プロジェクトが、B'zデビュー15周年となる2003年、ついに始動!! 今作には彼の音楽的な原風景を感じさせる70年代の邦楽をピックアップ。第1弾となるシングルには坂井泉水(ZARD)をボーカルに迎え、今なお愛されつづけるポップスの名曲「異邦人」(オリジナルは久保田早紀)を選曲。かつて松本孝弘が受けたオリジナル原曲への鮮烈な印象が、彼自身のキャリア、感性というフィルターを通して表現されている。またカップリングには松田明子(RAMJET PULLEY)をフィーチャーした「雨の街を」(オリジナルは荒井由実)を収録。それぞれ松本孝弘が思い入れを持つポップス・ナンバーであり、彼が生み出すサウンドのポピュラリティに迫る作品。M-1、M-2ともVOCAL LESSバージョン(カラオケ)を収録。

      異邦人 / 雨の街を 5

      Tak Matsumoto covers classic 80's hits of Saki Kubota and Yumi Matsutoya / Yumi Arai. Ihoujin ft. Zard rearranged by Tak sounds much more powerful in comparison to the original (which sounded more oriental). Ame no Machi wo ft. Akiko Matsuda remains close to the original, only sounding more polished up and space for Tak's solo. By listening to the few songs that Tak Matsumoto chooses to cover, it is evident how these hits have influenced the Japanese music scene. This single is more for those who would like to have a closer listen to Tak Matsumoto's arrangement of the tracks (instrumental tracks) or else I would recommend purchasing "The Hit Parade" instead :
