BrazilOnGuitar says: In October 1970 the Japanese Pony Canyon label would pay Baden Powell 30,000 US$
for recording 30 titles of modern Japanese music. The instrumental orchestra parts were already recorded
by Japanese musicians, leaving only the guitar track to be added. Of the 30 titles only 14 were selected
for the LP release, that was only avaliable for a short time in Japan only.

From Dominique Dreyfus Book "O violao vadio de Baden Powell", p.219-220: [...] a Japanese producer had invited
him [Baden] to record an album for which he would pay 30 thousand dollars. [...] He went to discuss with the producer to indicate the repertoire, the musicians he would need,
to see the arrangements... in short, to set up the production, and he replied: "But the arrangements are ready. "How are they ready, if I haven't chosen the repertoire?"
"The repertoire is already defined, the orchestra has recorded its part, everything is ready... All you need to do is play your solos. - Has the orchestra played yet?
But how did it record it if you don't know which key I'm going to play?" "No, don't worry, everything will be fine." [...]
