Momoe Yamaguchi is another artist on my list who has a lot of albums, so like Akina and Seiko I’m hoping I don’t end up repeating myself too much as I get deeper into their discographies. Toshigoro is her debut album and it’s OK, especially for the time period it was released in (early 70’s). Momoe doesn’t do much, just a lot of simple songs and nice melodies. Her voice is very mature for her age during this time though… I think she was like 13 or so when she debuted. It always surprises me when I listen to her albums; just how mature and nice her voice sounds.
