Discovered that was mostly Eleki when it came on the

I'm not sure if this video has been posted on this forum before, but here it is anyway. It's a pretty cool video of some band covering "Black Sand Beach"

The Deadbeats

Here's another cool video.

Yes, it has been posted here before. It's a made up band for the movie Eleki No Wakadaisho featuring Yuzo Kayama and Takeshi Terauchi on guitars. Definitely a great moment in eleki history!

Ha! Thanks, I hadn't noticed that it was them on guitars. There's all kinds of cool stuff going on in that video.

Awesome! Notice that Yuzo plays the lead until the drum break, and then Terry takes over for the second half of the song - it doesn't sound like it was recorded that way, the lead guitar sound is pretty consistent throughout the whole song, but that's the way they mimed it in the movie, indicating that Terry wasn't much lesser of a star at the time than Yuzo. (And BTW, yeah, by all means give the small guitar to the big guy, and the big guitar to the little guy!! Rolling Eyes )

There's a great history of Eleki in the new-ish Takeshi Terauchi UK-released comp "Nippon Guitars" on Ace Records:

From the liner notes, when Terry first put together the Bunnies (having recently quit the Blue Jeans):

"Band members were put through the mill at his training and rehearsal camp in Kamakura city. Being a Karate master, he knew about discipline: the band would awaken at five in the morning, sit in Zen meditation, then go for a run on the beach, followed by weight-training and band rehearsals till midnight."

Sounds just like the Madeira routine before each of our shows...

When does the late night runs for Steak n Shake or WHite Castle's come into the routine?

Been meaning to snag that one ... pretty sure I have all the 60's stuff on other albums already, but it'll be worth it just for the liner notes and pics, I'm sure.

Sounds more like Manowar than eleki. Laughing

That was excessively violent and completely unnecessary. I loved it.

Though the liner notes are great, I found the comp very disappointing. It skips most of the obvious classics by Terry, while including a TON of hippie drivel that frankly is pretty unlisteneable, at least for me. 14 out 25 tracks are post '70, and the stuff that isn't hippie drivel is super melllloooowwww. The '60s tracks are decent, but I don't think they're among his best. And there's only four tracks by the '60s Blue Jeans, and one of them is a cover of Journey to the Stars (really??). Honestly, not that I'm any kind of a Takeshi Terauchi expert, but I find the track selection completely puzzling. I think Ace usually nails it, but I think they completely blew it big time with this one. (Incidentally, it seems to me that even with liner notes there were some big editing errors, where sentences or even paragraphs were in the wrong place of the story.)

I was hoping this CD would be a one-stop introduction to Terry, whose own output is gigantic. This doesn't even come close to that. Bummer.

A question for any Takeshi Terauchi experts out there, since I've been getting into him quite a bit lately. I have Let's Go Eleki-Bushi, Let's Go Classics, "Let's Spend the Misummer Sea" (??? I think this one's originally from the '72 - see photo below), and Twin Best, a 2-CD comp that has some great stuff, but a lot of is more modern rerecordings of the original tracks.

I've been looking at the other reissues on CD, but it's really hard to get info in English on all this stuff, it's very frustrating. I am definitely planning on picking up Let's Go Terry, but was wondering if the following albums would be good ones to get, too, or are they mostly vocal or what:

Eleki Guitar No Subete
Beat! Beat! Beat! Vol. 1 and 2
Beat! Beat! Beat! Vol. 3 and 4

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yep, that's the one talked about earlier under the name Manatso No Umi Wo Buttobase. Killer album!

IMO Eleki Guitar No Subete isn't essential by any stretch. Here's the mini-review I wrote of it, from earlier in this thread:

Really cool cover and packaging, but unfortunately the album features a slightly, um, prominent orchestral backing. It works really well on "Malaguena," and to a lesser extent "Dark Eyes," but on most of the other songs it's fairly jarring. I think it came out in the late '60s.

Some of the arrangements are downright bizarre, too--"Walk Don't Run" sounds way more like a cheesy Vegas lounge band than it anything else, and "Caravan" has a neat muted-delay thing going on with the lead. On most of the songs Terry's playing isn't nearly as uncontrolled and weird as on his earlier albums--there's even an intricate fingerpicked solo piece that's really gorgeous ... until the orchestra comes blaring in near the end. On a whole it's a more strange album than good, but it is pretty interesting.

The Beat! Beat! Beat! collections are both pretty worthy, though. I like 1, 2 and 4 the best, and 3 has some cool stuff on it as well. I'd go with Let's Go Terry first, though - the vocal half is decent, and every single instro on it rules.

That was excessively violent and completely unnecessary. I loved it.

Not sure where else to put this. It's simply lovely.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.

This looks interesting.

Ivan, did you ever get around to picking up Let's Go Terry?
I love that one. There is some GS (group sounds) vocal stuff as well on that but it still sounds great as far as the recordings go and some of his coolest instrumentals on are on it.

It was broadcast in Nippon Television Network Corporation on January 3, 2008. "THE OYAJI BAND SHOW"

One more. Thanks to Michel on UF2 for this one. Okay, so I like Besame Mucho. These guys are pretty good. The white gloved bassist is interesting (and impressive) but what gets me is how aggressive the rhythm guitarist covers Don Wilson. Nice.
