The late-50's to mid-70's twin sister duo The Peanuts(Emi & Yumi Itoh) were the most musically talented Japanese duo of all time. Their debut single back in 1959 was the Japanese language version of "Petite Fleur" backed with "The Peanuts Vendor". They were also successful in Germany in the mid-60's and this CD mainly consists of their German recordings, many of them which were never released in Japan. Also included are their very rare German TV live performances accompanied by Caterina Valente who introduced The Peanuts to Germany.
The Peanuts are also famous as the appearance of the film "Mothra". Most of their Japanese recordings are available in Japan on King Records CDs and one of their big hits "Koi No Vacance" became also very successful in Russia.
