Saitana - Jenakuru LP
Label: Tooth Factory
1977's Jenakuru was self-produced and reveals a slightly darker, somewhat introspective and perhaps more vulnerable side to Saitana. A great admirer of Jimi Hendrix, Satiana often performed solo during this period. "It was really unheard of at the time to perform without a band. He could entertain people like that and a lot of people loved him because he was such a character." There was also an increasingly Dionysian aspect to Saitana's routine as a performer - a gradual advance into drunken showmanship akin to Jim Morrison. Taken from the original reels.
