Here is Miharu Koshi's excellent album Boy Soprano, released by Non-Standard Records in 1985. This album is produced by Koshi's constant collaborator Haruomi Hosono, and the two split composition duties on the original tracks. Aside from the six originals, Koshi really pushes her vocals with two Schubert tracks, "Heidenröslein" and "Ave Maria", inspiring the album's title. As with most of her work, Koshi sings in several languages here. Hopefully I'll have more of her albums to share in the coming weeks.
