Emy Jackson エミージャクソン

In the wake of the Beatles’ visit to Tokyo, Japanese bands began to imitate the group vocal routine; hence, the term Group Sounds (GS) was coined by the Japanese Press. Emy Jackson, born in Japan but raised in England, released the very successful SP 涙の太陽 Crying in a storm in 1966. The backing was done by The Smashmen playing a surf-styled guitar and heavy drumming which clearly showed the influence of The Ventures in J-pop.
(Note: Rita Chao & The Quests also covered Crying in a storm and Say yes, my boy 夢見るマイ・ボーイ)

CBS (Japan) 1994: The Emy Jackson Album
Crying in a storm, Pretend, I gave all my love to you, Crying in the chapel, Little white clouds that cried, Don’t break my heart, Say yes, my boy, If I give my heart to you, Tears A-go go, I went to your wedding, Frankie, Suddenly I’m alone

(CRYING IN A STORM)
Take me, take me, take my heart and all, I was born to be yours
Love me, love me, get me, hold me tight, now I’m crying in a storm
I know that you take them in your crazy sport car, Kitty, Chris, Ronnie, Julie, Nancy and Patsy
Why, why not me
Take me, take me, take my heart and all, I was born to be yours
