Recordings of
Kaoru Chiba (BACHI)
 
 
 Apology

 I placed the original sound truck "Heidi A girl of the Alps" (Nippon Columbia, 1974 recording) as one of the orchestra recordings of Kaoru Chiba (Bachi), but came to take it as a mention error by the following reasons. So I delete it from this discography with an apology for all readers.

(1) As a result of having confirmed the problem to an archivist of Nippon Columbia Co., Ltd., there are no mentions about the member of the back orchestra named "Columbia Orchestra", and no identified materials about the details.

(2) Chiyoshige Matsubara, horn player of The Japan Philharmonic orchestra and New Japan Philharmonic at the same period of Bachi, judged to be different from Bachi in tonguing after hearing this sound source.

(3) Bachi always told Chiyo-san not to do part-time job performance in those days.

(4) Chiyo-san asked Reiko Honsho (Mrs. Bachi) this problem just to make sure, and she answered "99% No!"
