NORIKO MIYAMOTO - "Can't stop loving you" (undated)

Very hard-to-find Japanese 7" single with a smooth sound strongly influenced by Philly!!! In fact this track is the flip side to the A-side entitled "Last train". Much later Noriko became famous as "MIMI" in the R&B scene. This rare single was released on Trio Records circa late '70s only in Japan.

FYI the title of this song is "honoo no koro" and taken from Noriko Miyamoto's 2nd LP released in 1980. (source: The Soul of Amsterdam)
