In other somewhat related news, I finally got my hands on to some of his merchandise that I've been hoping to get for a long time now: his calendars. I got both the 2017 and 2018 ones late last year when his goods shop got itself in order at long last. As with the Hiroshi Itsuki (五木ひろし) calendar, I LOVE them. Now with what I call my monthly posters, plus some additional candid shots at the back of each edition, I'll be doing what I did with Itsuki's articles a while back wherein I showcased the months' photos, starting with this one.
Alright, coming to the topic at hand, I wondering as to what song from Mae-Kiyo's repertoire that I hadn't yet written about would be good for his tribute, and after some consideration, I thought it'd be apt to feature "Hana no Toki・Ai no Toki", his first single released after he left his Mood Kayo group, The Cool Five, in 1987. This song was brought to you by renowned songwriters Rei Nakanishi (なかにし礼), who was responsible for the words, and Takashi Miki (三木たかし), the music.
Well, now, I think I have close to 50 pictures of Mae-Kiyo in total... Guess that makes it more than my collection of Hachi's... I think. 😌
