    label: Erebus

    Melting Glass Box (`Tokedashita Garasu Bako') was a studio-only project of Nishiokai Takashi from Itsutsu No Akai Fusen (guitar, percussion and vocals), with Tetsuo Saito (vocals, percussion), Kazuhiko Kato (guitar), Kazuo Takeda ex-Blues Creation (guitar), Haruomi Hosono ex-Apryl Fool (bass) and Takasuke Kida ex-Jacks (percussion, wind instruments) originally released in 1970 on URC in Japan. This was their sole release under this name. Japanese acid folk rock psych with mind-blowing electric guitar leads and lots of trippy effects thrown in! Nishiokai Takashi went on to release several solo albums. Not in Julian Cope's Japrocksampler Top 50, however if you like Itsutsu No Akai Fusen's "Flight" album (number 47) then you will love this one. Includes a 12-page booklet with band info and photos.
