Discography of all the Island Palm Tree label LPs issued in Japan.

In 1971-74, King Records co., ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) had exclusively released the Island label LPs (the Palm Tree label, then).
Traffic and Free were very popular groups among music fans in Japan then.
On the other hand, Fairport Convention didn't seem to have much attention of the rock'n roll fans, though the band awakened our interest in traditional music of England.
Late 1974, Toshiba EMI (Tokyo, Japan) began to release the Island label, and "Rising for the Moon" was successfully sneaked into the lineup.
It is remarkable that almost all of the Fairport Convention's LPs were issued in Japan in that Palm Tree period.

King Record issues
          (From the first issue of the Island label in 1971 to the last in 1974)
Toshiba EMI issues
          (From late 1974 throughout LP era)
      (my list ends with "Rising for the Moon".)
