Ohta-San - "Song for Anna" (1973)


Ohta-San - "Song for Anna" (Billboard easy listening #26, entered 5/4/74). Written by Andre Popp. Produced by Newell Bohnett. 45: "Song for Anna (Chansons d'Anna)"/"Keeping You Company" (A&M 1973). LP: Song for Anna (A&M 1973).

Herb Ohta is a Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso who is sometimes billed as "Ohta-San" (with "san" being a Japanese term of respect). The 45 of this song is subtitled according to its French title and billed to Ohta's Japanese name. The album cover, though, sticks with "Herb." Ohta charted only one more time in his long career, with the easy listening hit "One Day of Love" in 1975.
