Thanks Russell.  

I got a copy of Matsuri Uta (from Blue Seed) after you mentioned it
months ago. It's nice, but maybe due to my living in Japan, certain more
traditional enka moves me more.  Your other recommendations are already
like old friends to me.

By the way, Slawomir let me know offlist that his recommendation for
Dead Can Dance applied only to their early stuff.  I got some of their
pre-1993 work and liked it much better than their more recent
"world-beat/tribal" music.  Probably just showing my age...
