Released in 2017, Year BookThe fourth volume in the "Year 1985-1989" series, this collection of recordings from the late 1980s is the largest in the series at five CDs. The legendary "TV WAR" performance with Daizaburo Harada and the "Ink Stick Session" with Bill Laswell, Toshinori Kondo, Carlos Alomar, and others are each included in their entirety on one CD, as is Koharu Kisaragi's performance "Matthew 1985 - That Man Did Nothing" on two CDs. In addition to collaboration songs with Sandy and the Sunsetz and David Sylvian, commercial songs from the period, and a live radio performance with Taeko Onuki, the 5-CD set is filled to the brim with the energetic activities of Ryuichi Sakamoto in the late 80s. The inclusion of "Futurista," an outtake from the album "Futurista Yaro" was also a big hit. As with his previous works, the album comes with a booklet featuring an interview with Ryuichi Sakamoto explaining the songs and rare photos from that era.
