A nice lazy and sunny Wednesday afternoon here...just the right type of day for this song, Bread & Butter's "The Last Letter". This track from the duo's 6th album, "Late Late Summer" which includes "Summer Blue" simply screams for a bottle of Perrier and a beach umbrella. It's quite the song for those yuppies who like to wrap their pink sweaters around their waists as they did back in the early 1980s.
Mind you, "Late Late Summer" came out in June 1979. As for "The Last Letter", it's a mellow and slightly comical song about trying to mend a figurative broken fence for a couple with that titular last letter being the final olive branch. Strangely enough, the song was created by two-thirds of the then-super popular technopop Yellow Magic Orchestra, drummer Yukihiro Takahashi（高橋幸宏）and bassist Haruomi Hosono（細野晴臣）. And the other interesting thing is that Satsuya and Fuyumi Iwasawa（岩沢幸矢・岩沢二弓）especially sound like another duo from another genre, the Shibuya-kei Flippers' Guitar, on this particular track.
