Satori Part 2
by Flower Travellin' Band
Flower Travellin' Band were a Japanese rock band formed in Tokyo in 1967. They were connected to Japan's counterculture movement and noted for their mixture of early heavy metal with psychedelic and progressive rock. The band was initially started as a side-project by producer Yuya Uchida when he returned to Japan after visiting his friend John Lennon in England in the mid 1960s.

Their first album, Anywhere, released in 1970, was mainly a collection of cover songs including "Black Sabbath" (the same year it was originally released by Black Sabbath).

Satori, released in 1971, was their first album of original songs. The album was recorded in just two days.

The entirety of the album, Satori, was used as the music score for Takashi Miike's 2002 film Deadly Outlaw: Rekka, which features Flower Travellin' Band members Yuya Uchida and Joe Yamanaka as actors.

"Satori Part I" was covered by The Claypool Lennon Delirium, which consists of Les Claypool and Sean Lennon, for their 2017 EP Lime and Limpid Green. Lennon's mother, Yoko Ono, knew the band members and introduced him to their work.

Rolling Stone Japan rated Satori #71 on their list of the "100 Greatest Japanese Rock Albums of All Time".
