Asami Kado -- Season

Probably out of all of the singles from the Greta Garbo of kayo kyoku, my favourite is this one, "Season", her 4th single released in September 1980. Written and composed by Asami Kado (門あさ美)herself, it has that congenial twang to it which reminds me a bit of American country singer Crystal Gayle. Although three of her albums have been put up on "Japanese City Pop", (already profiled under "Media")I think "Season" is just a straight-up pop ballad.The song is also a track on Kado's third album, "Semi-Nude" which was released the following year in July. It went as high as No. 16 on the Oricon weeklies.
