山本リンダ (or Linda Yamamoto to westerners like us) is a Japanese singer who was very prominent in the 60's and 70's. The original version of her biggest hit, 狙いうち (Nerai uchi/Sharpshoot), is featured on this album. A complete bombshell, her provocative dress style was one of the things that propelled her into the limelight, being quite known for having a revealed butty button in some of her stage costumes. Not only is her look noticeably different, but her vocal style projects like no other. That kind of deep, sultry, sexy voice that sends shivers down your spine.

Linda's music sounds like something that would be played in the backdrop of a Seijun Suzuki film, or to make that statement sound more modern, something that Tarantino would pick up for one of his films. The production value is high, with various percussion, a brassy horn section, swirling violins, and manic piano playing, all with Linda's powerhouse vocals in front.

The first disc is the complete album. The second are instrumentals for those of you at home who want to karaoke some Linda, or for you wacky noise peeps who will probably manipulate it for something ;P
