Record Store Day is April 21, 2018. In Japan featured two 45 single releases I produced of Jeffrey Foskett covering Tatsurō Yamashita songs. These releases also provide hints into other activity on the "b side". Last year it was the Tatsuro song "Jody" with my “You Remind Me of the Sun" which was well received. This year is as follows: "Only With You" / b side: "Feeling Just The Way I Do" (Foskett-Larson cover song featuring Henry Kapono on green transparent vinyl) / "Love Can Go The Distance" / b side: "True Love Ways" (Jeffrey's beautiful cover of this Buddy Holly's classic on purple transparent vinyl)
