Details: This is a lightly used first US CD PROMO DIGIPAK of Japan-based Pizzicato Five's album, Playboy & Playgirl, sent out to radio and press in 1999 on Matador Records. Pizzicato Five's eleventh studio album, "The International Playboy & Playgirl," was shortened to just "Playboy & Playgirl" (for US press, only). It has different tracks than the Japan issue on Readymade Records (a Columbia sub). Their Japanese single-only track, "La Règle du Jeu," which did not appear on the album in Japan, replaced their Japan-album only track, "The International Pizzicato Five Mansion," for the US issue. This is a fantastic and special album from Pizzicato Five. It comes with a full insert booklet with mod images of the band taken while recording.

Description: Pizzicato Five (formerly typeset as Pizzicato V and sometimes abbreviated to P5) was a Japanese pop band formed in Tokyo in 1979 by multi-instrumentalists Yasuharu Konishi and Keitarō Takanami. After some personnel changes in the late 1980s, the band gained international fame as a duo consisting of Konishi and vocalist Maki Nomiya. With their music blending together 1960s pop, jazz, and synth-pop, the group was a prominent component in the Shibuya-kei movement of the 1990s.

Pizzicato Five was a hugely prolific group during its existence, usually releasing at least an album each year in addition to various EPs and remix albums. Their music has appeared in numerous movies, television episodes, and video games.
