Profile Murasaki was originally formed by keyboardist George Murasaki in 1971 on the island of Okinawa in southwestern Japan. Okinawa became the focus of public attention in 1972, when it was returned to Japanese administration after being under the control of the US military ever since the end of World War II. Just around this time, mainland Japanese record companies started approaching Murasaki, which had become very popular among the US servicemen stationed on the island as well as among the young local Okinawan rock music fans.

Murasaki landed a recording contract in 1975 with a major recording company currently known as Tokuma Japan. Authentic hard rock influenced by Deep Purple. The lyrics are English. A best compilation that includes 10 tracks in total. ‘Lazy’ is a cover of Deep Purple.
