I discovered Junko’s Kashimiya no Hohoemi (Cashmere’s Smile) on Tumbler and loved it! I wanted the original album but it’s too expensive so I purchased Junko’s Golden Best instead. It also includes this song.
I fell in love with Dress Down after hearing it sampled by Yung Bae. Amazon Japan didn’t have any copies (new or used) until recently. A merchant wanted $125 dollars for a used copy in “acceptable” condition. I purchased it despite the list of problems with the CD artwork and disc itself. Fortunately, the seller exaggerated it’s condition. The artwork is in good condition and the disc is ever so slightly worn.
The seller shipped it free to my Tenso address then Tenso shipped it stateside by EMS. Usually, the mailman has me sign for EMS packages but not this time. I also created an account at my.usps.com and was able to track my package with the EMS tracking number.
These CDs were purchased from Amazon Japan and were delivered by DHL on Memorial Day.
This CD arrived from Amazon Japan. It’s condition was listed as “acceptable” although it was in surprisingly good shape. No tears on the artwork. This was a rental and the obi was taped to the cover. There’s a sticker on the artwork that I’m afraid to remove because it might damage the artwork. The CD itself is in excellent condition–it’s hard to believe this was a rental.
I bought this CD for “Kimi no Hitomi ni Koishiteru” (Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You). It’s Shohjo-tai’s 1986 rendition of the Frankie Valli song. There’s also a 1987 version of this song on their P-CAN album which sounds more 80s dance.
I’ve had packages arrive the same day they left Japan. Amazing! However, US Customs can delay it 45 days. I’ve read online your package sits in a warehouse on pallets without even being inspected.
US Customs snagged my latest package. I’ll update this if they really screw me. It’s been been there for 3 days now.
