It won't be too long before the year-end season of parties takes place in Japan. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some of them take place in the next couple of weeks at some izakaya or high-priced restaurant. Of course, over here, we've got the round of Xmas parties and then New Year's Eve parties to look forward to (or not). I don't really go to a lot of those anymore but there is the one with the anime buddy and our other friends which will probably be happening in the first half of December. A good time is usually had by all but we certainly don't do the hashigo (barhopping) anymore; a little too old on that front now.
Earlier in the year, I mentioned about this City Pop singer who may be even more mysterious than Takako Mamiya（間宮貴子）in terms of her current whereabouts. This would be Amy（エイミー）...just the single name known...who may have only put out one album and a couple of singles all in 1983. Idol.ne.jp mentions her lone album "Amy" and says that it is her first album, hinting that there may have been a follow-up effort but I have yet to come across such a second album.
In any case, here is another track from "Amy", and that is "Party Night", a perfectly good title for a song that straddles the line between AOR and City Pop. Written by Naoko Nishio（西尾尚子）and composed by singer-songwriter Yoichi Takizawa（滝沢洋一）with arrangement by Masaki Matsubara（松原正樹）, "Party Night" sounds more like a daytime tune but I'll let that observation go since I do like those horns and that jazzy guitar. The song was also the B-side to Amy's 2nd single "Mr. Cool", a song which is also included on the album.
Let's see whether there is a remastered version of "Amy" out there for Xmas.
