We have been unable to find out much about this sleeve, but we would like to thank one of our Japanese customers for his assistance in identifying the artists and song titles in English. Sleeve has a very old appearance-definitely at least as old as the 1960's, and possibly from the 50's (we would welcome any further information!). Sleeve is thin separate sheet (Isao on top-Bonny Jacks in classic American-style Doo Wop pose at bottom), with lyrics in Japanese on the back, grading Near Mint. Disc is housed in red King stock sleeve, and is also beautifully preserved, grading Near Mint. Very cool vintage Japanese Pop artifact, offered for a low price.
