Op-z & ymo

just came across this cover from the Yellow Magic Orchestra, and shocked how similar they are! the album is YMO L-R TRAX from 2005



Nice graphic design :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah I think they were definitely inspired by this.

They recently used a ymo track for their po pixel launch video


I have that boxed set (a Compilation of YMO live tracks) - picked it up on one of my trips to Japan probably about 20 years (!) ago.
It really is a lovely package.

Never noticed the graphic inspiration before now.
I’ve always been more drawn to how the original OP1 takes so many cues from the Casio VL-Tone (which was my very first keyboard 40 years ago :smile:).
