Kawabata Makoto

...or Makoto Kawabata. I've recently seen all of this OOP stuff for sale for unbelievably high prices. So, I decided to post.

The Private Tapes series was designed to be sold on tour and generally consist of his private musings or extremely rare live recordings of the groups that he has been involved with. "Yesterday Was Your Birthday, Baby" was released as a bonus disc when Acid Mothers Temple released Private Tapes 1-7 as a tour edition (of 30!). Each of those sets was autographed and sold during the Acid Mothers Temple "Magical Ministry Tour" in 2002.

The Early Works box set was released in 2000 in a limited edition of 100 copies, as part of the Acid Mothers Temple Private Disc Series. They were originally released between 1980 and 1983 on Kawabata's independent cassette label, R.E.P. (Revolutionary Extrication Project).

The Private Sound Drawing Series was again released as part of Acid Mothers Temple's Private Disc Series. Tour editions of (perhaps) 200.

Helluva post. A year later, the links are still good to some rare stuff I thought I'd never get a chance to hear. Thank you.

Rickycrash 20 June 2012 at 04:07

I will get around to this if the blog lives long enough in these uncertain times lol

I know it's a pain to get requests for re-ups from people too slow witted to download the first time round ... but this is such a drool provoking post, I just had to ask ...!

Hi Nathan

It's not your fault that you weren't looking six years ago ... I'm not sure when it will happen but I'll add this to the next re-up post.

I've since acquired the Pulsating Electric Force cdr from the Private Sound Drawing series so there will be at least one new thing there when it happens.

Nathan 27 August 2016 at 09:28  

Thanks a lot for that! Looking forward to it, to say the obvious. Just come across your blog, so also thanks for being here and doing it. Best!

Do to a faulty hard drive my collection of Makoto Kawabata
from your post in 2010 all but was wiped out.
would you be able to repost that amazing collection
hope you can and will

Hi Carl ... sorry to hear it ... see above, this will be on the next re-up post when I get around to it ... maybe before the end of the month ... maybe.

love these monster reuploads you do from time to time...just sampled some of this one and i´m ethereal...much appreciated...

Nathan 1 August 2017 at 16:10  

Thanks very much for re-uploading all this Kawabata stuff - really pleased to be able to listen to it. In a moment of breath-taking ingratitude, can I also request a re-upload for the Jooklo stuff. Yes, I know, what a cheeky w-----. But, in any case, thanks for this very much: private tapes at last!

badgerstump 1 August 2017 at 16:18  

What a cheeky w------!

Good idea tho, don't have a re-up planned yet but I'll try and remember next time the impulse grabs me ....
