ABBA / Arrival – Japan

Here’s one of our favorite groups ever! and this LP is still in its original sleeve from the record store in Yokohama (Motomachi) that we purchased it from in 1977.

It seemed fitting that we would purchase this album upon arriving to commemorate year one of our three years in Japan. At ¥2500 it was about $17! Big time money in 1977!

For your money you received a protective sleeve and the complete lyrics as well as an enhanced pressing.

Sansui G-9000

Pure Power! That’s how the sales rep from Sansui pitched it to us at the U.S. Navy Exchange in Yokosuka, Japan in 1978. It is a monster!

Here’s a peek inside –

Sadly we don’t own it anymore – a casualty of downsizing our home. It could rock in its day and rattle the windows! They sell on eBay now for solid money.
