"A while back, I dubbed this limited to 300 LP onto my Walkman and spent many a late night in a New York subway tunnel with this as my only companion. Nothing can make the glare of dirty tiles and peculiarly fecund puddles from slumbering bum shapes more tolerable than to suddenly be whisked away to Zenpukuji Lake in Tokyo with all these ducks, their beaks squeaking and chattering for joy as you drop them little wedges of stale bread. The clarity of each rustled feather and splish-splash is rendered life-like here, and the effect is transporting, like all good music should be. But I must add that the background voices can be destabilizing, as I constantly felt that other park goers were abruptly around me, asking me for directions or spare change in Japanese. The flip is as wonderful, as now you slumber near a swarm of (nearly-electronic) crickets in the early part of evening. Very enveloping in the higher registers, and hard to believe with each placement of scooter sound and voice that this is just pure field recordings from Mr. Suzuki, and not some expert rendering of Luc Ferrari's "Presque Rien." For those who miss the classic field recordings of the Folkways label." [Andy Beta]
