Victor (1967)

My mom went to a Yukio Hashi concert during her 1967 Tokyo trip and bought a few of his 45s, including this morsel. This and a couple of her other Japanese 45s include an unusual physical design feature: the 45 RPM adaptor is built into the 45. When I briefed Alexander on this one he asked "I wonder if people were supposed to snap that thing out to use an adaptor?" Upon close examination I concluded that it's a permanent feature--you'd need a serious blade or tool to remove the thing.

This A-side ("Koi No Mexican Rock") is by far my least favorite song of these Japanese 45s, but I sure love its sleeve:
