Born in Chiba, Japan, Akiko Nakamura gained notoriety as a singer and actress during the 1960s and 1970s. Starting as a beauty pageant contestant, she soon ventured into music, taking inspiration from the garage rock of the late 1960s.

Hit Album is an early J Pop rarity that shows the true size, scope and diversity of '60s pop, containing a mix of covers and original songs (by Hiro Yokoi and Hirooki Ogawa). Collaborating with Japanese band The Jaguars, their hit single “Nijiirono Mizuumi” (featured on this release) went to #3 on the Japanese Pop Charts. Other album highlights include her beautiful rendition of the counterculture classic “San Francisco.”
