Kazuki Tomokawa

"Shibuya APIA Document" (Live 1993-95)

Tomokawa's seventh release for PSF consists of live performances recorded in 1993-95 at Shibuya Apia. He plays acoustic guitar and sings throughout, with only minor backing on piano or accordion. The power of musical performance demonstrated here is typically staggering; Tomokawa's guitar playing is purely invigorating and intense (as physical as acoustic playing can get), and his voice is a towering outlet; an emotional songform beyond all international limits.

I downloaded Tomokawas music here years ago and accidently deleted it some weeks ago. Since I can not buy his music here in europe I was hoping to find it here again, but the links have gone.
Could you repost an download link? Much appreciated.
宜しくお願い致します。
返事をお待ちしております。
