Nippon Rock’n’Roll documents the rise of Masaaki Hirao. Dubbed The Japanese Elvis, Hirao was one of the famed Rokabirii Sannin Otoko (Three Rockabillies), alongside singers Mickey Curtis and Kei-chan, Keijiro Yamashita. In early 1958, the rokabirii buumu (rockabilly boom) was born, the first youth music tribe in the Land Of The Rising Sun. Rokabirii may resemble US rockabilly, but this Nipponese version is a more varied dish. Hirao and his band’s covers of Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley and Little Richard are not kitsch renditions, but raw, desperate rockers

He was called the Japanese Elvis and, unlike some who bore such a title, Masaaki Hirao actually recorded somewhat close to the peak of Presley. While Hirao recorded between 1958 and 1960, perhaps giving birth to a Japanese rock & roll scene that remained enraptured with rockabilly well into the new millennium, he actually made a valiant effort to make moody rock & roll that could possibly hold its own with its American forefather.

Nippon Rock 'n' Roll documents the rise of Masaaki Hirao. This is an interesting bit of Japanese Rock and Roll. Due in part to the "live concert" acoustics replete with screaming female fans, the album is not a crystal clear studio recording. Masaaki Hirao was to Japan what Elvis was to the USA. Many familiar songs open with the lead in lines sung in English, Hirao then makes the switch to Japanese.
