Toshiba – EMI Promotional Calendar
Japanese music fans in the 1980’s had it better than those in any other territory. Period. With their luxurious vinyl editions, superior audio mastering, and quality control standards that were second to none, that is certainly the way it seems looking at things with a retrospective eye. Today, we revisit some fine vintage memorabilia originating from Japan in the mid 80’s.
Issued by Toshiba-EMI in 1984 (for use in 1985) this highly collectible calendar is a lovely example of the top quality merchandise to come out of Japan during those years.
A ‘who’s who’ of the music scene, the calendar houses some lovely prints of many British pop and rock figures, with David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran all making an appearance.
Our interests of course lie with the inclusion of Limahl and Kajagoogoo in the celebrity line-up.
Each artiste has it’s own dedicated page – printed in lovely glossy colour. On the reverse is printed discography information. Here is the Kajagoogoo and Limahl insert:
The calendar is a textured card ‘frame’ that houses individual pages for each artiste and also each month.
All that is left to show you is the item itself. Here’s it is:
Thanks for visiting KajaFax! We will be back soon with more great ‘Goo!
