MEIKO KAJI / Zenkyoku Shu (2004)

If you live far from the shores of Japan, then getting your hands on any of Meiko Kaji’s albums will likely entail paying up to three or even four times what you’d normally fork out for a CD.  That’s wallet-pain, right there.  However, if a ‘Best Of’ compilation will suffice, then Zenkyoku Shu (or Zenkyokushu) will fit the bill nicely.  It has her most famous works, i.e. the themes to the Lady Snowblood and the Sasori (Scorpion) films, both of which you’ll find linked below.  The remainder of the tracks float on similar musical waters, so if those two appeal to your secret sensual side or your inner-samurai, then start saving your pennies.

Songs of Note: Urami Bushi; Shura no Hana
