"The album title "Manazashi" is<羊毛とおはな>This duo looks at the past and future through sound.
It represents the feelings of all the musicians who participated. And it represents the vision of the passionate music fans who will listen to this album."
...Soichiro Suzuki (World Standard)

There was also a comment from member Ichikawa Kazunori.
"If I had to choose who I would most like to play the Yohmo to Ohana tribute album "Manazashi" to, it would definitely be Chiba Hana, so it's a "farewell CD" in two senses. It's been 20 years since we formed, and the songs we've created together with Chiba Hana have been mediated by musicians we respect, and I feel like they've created a wonderful bouquet that I'm familiar with but have never seen before.
To all of you who are fans of Wool and Ohana, we apologize for the wait.
To those who listened to "Manazashi" without knowing Yohmo to Ohana, nice to meet you."
... Kazunori Ichikawa (Wool and Flowers)
