In early 1971, they were joined by keyboard player Hidemi Sakashita, and thereafter took the name Yonin-Bayashi, which is old Japanese for 'quartet. The band's first gig was at the Satsuki-Sai (May Festival) at Tokyo University, on May 1971. Yonin-Bayashi released several LPs during the 1970s, one of which - ISHOKU-SOKUHATSU - is at number 48 in Japrocksampler's Top 50.
