Down Town

CD No: Flying Dog VTZL-16
Release date: 20 Oct 2010
Price: Y1700
Total length: 24:09 (6 tracks)

This is Maaya's mini album and all the three songs are a cover of J-pop classics.
Down Town was released in 1975 by Sugar Babe (Yamashita Tatsuro and Oonuki Taeko were among the members). The second song was Arai Yumi's hit in 1974 You may remember it as the ED theme of Kiki's Delivery Service. ^_^ The last one is by The Folk Crusaders in 1968 and has been covered by numerous people, including Paku Romi.
Maaya does really well in all the songs with help of the arrangers, IMO.
