    Really crazy old band from Okinawa, Japan. They're essentially Japanese Lynyrd Skynyrd,
    and they were some of the best 70's hard rock Japan had to offer, rare stuff! Enjoy!

    I'm already familiar with Condition Green, both those albums are terrific.
    I once bamboozled a Southern Rock loving aquaintance from Texas with them.
    He refused to believe that the band could be Japanese as they sound so authentically "Southern".
    Did the musicians go on to any other bands who are worth hearing?

    That I'm unsure of, I certainly hope they did. Who knows, maybe we'll see a reunion someday sorta like Okinawa's other important rock band Murasaki did after like 15 years. Can only hope. c:

    That would be nice, they were certainly very talented musicians.
    I'd be surprised if some of them didn't go on to play in other bands.
    I'm vaguely familiar with Murasaki, they were very Deep Purple influenced if memory serves?
    I'm not very clued up on Japanese bands, but i've been getting into Bow Wow's early stuff recently, killer band!
    It's made me curious about some of the other music of that era from Japan.
    Any recommendations?
    Here's a video compilation of Condition Green:

    Japan has some fantastic classic metal bands, I'd highly recommend bands such as:
    Loudness (80's era mainly)
    EZO
    Seikima II (Big Time Changes is a great album)
    Anthem
    Kuni
    X Japan's heavier stuff (mind you their soft stuff is good too)

    ...and pretty much anything Steeler uploads to this site haha.

    The ones I mentioned are kinda more famous ones though, but still very good bands.

    Thanks for the tips, i'll look into them when time permits.
    Of those you mentioned i'm only familiar with EZO and a little Loudness material.
    Akira's solo LP "Tusk Of Jaguar" is a great listen.
    I'd never even heard of Seikima II, so i checked out a youtube vid of them.
    WTF?!!
    I wasn't expecting the crazy visuals, but the music (and in particular the vocalist), sounded really good.
    Appreciate the help, thanks again.
