The first ever reissue on single CD since its original release, the album has the original artwork and new liner notes by Hashim Kotaro Bharoocha who has interviewed Meiko for the occasion. It features “Urami Bushi” the theme song for the Female Prisoner Scorpion series which was used in Kill Bill Vol 2 and also “Onna No Jumon” the theme song for the film “Female Prisoner Scorpion – Jailhouse 41 which had been composed by Shunsuke Kikuchi who also composed the score for these films.
The rest of the album follows the same pattern with atmospheric songs such as “Onna Hagure Uta” or “Onna Somuki Uta” displaying Meiko’s sombre singing over a superb slow-burning groove, which precedes the funkier “Hitori Kaze” featuring a wah wah guitar, a breakbeat-like rhythm section and slick string arrangement, shaping the unique Meiko Kaji signature sound.
