"City pop icon Miki Matsubara's debut single ‘Mayonaka no Door ~ Stay With Me’ was a huge hit with her high singing ability and won numerous awards for newcomers at the time. The song is a perfect combination of Yoshiko Miura's lyrics, which beautifully depict a sad woman's heart with an urban sense, and Tetsuji Hayashi's melody, which is reminiscent of Western music. The stylish and danceable arrangement of the track, with top musicians pouring their top-notch skills into it, has been covered by many artists in Japan and abroad, and has spread all over the world. Miki Matsubara's debut album, which includes the album version of ‘Mayonaka no Door ~ stay with me’ reissued in a limited Color Vinyl (Aqua Blue)! A special poster is enclosed. The original album was released on January 21, 1980. A city pop classic with dazzling songs by top musicians. ‘It's So Creamy’ features Miki Matsubara's vocals that seem to melt into the AOR sound that feels like a fresh breeze. The funky rhythm section that starts with sharp guitar cutting and the thick, danceable brass section intertwines in ‘Cryin'’, and the powerful vocals are mesmerizing. On ‘Trouble Maker’ she shouts out over a huge swell of rock beats, showing the world that she has a versatility that is hard to believe for a 19-year-old." - Pony Canyon
