ROB SEZ: The former front man for Japan has had one of the most fascinating and distinguished musical careers of all the "New Wave" progenitors. Perhaps only David Bowie had a more storied and musically engrossing path. I've got more DS and Japan rarities, but will need some comments to encourage me to share...
ALL PRAISES to the original compiler & sharer 
and to Don at the old ASH blog for sharing with me.
