Her second album released on 1988.01.25. The music for 瞳・元気 (Hitomi Genki) was composed by Karashima Midori. The lyrics was composed by Karashima and Tadano Natsumi.
Karashima also composed music to several other songs recorded by Nagai. Off hand, I recall Fight! and Dear My Friend where, again, if I recall correctly are recorded in the album Tobikkiri which I shall post in the future.
Furthermore, Karashima provided background vocals in Nagai's 'Catch Ball' album.

I have not posted any downloads as yet and will not be doing so until sometime in April. I am off to the Congo on Sat. 10th March 2012 and will be back on 17th March 2012. There is an 18-hour layover in Paris both inbound and outbound from the Congo - which reminds me of a song by Joni Mitchell.
