I missed that post entirely. Sorry about that. I've added them all to the first post.

Slightly unrelated, I suppose, but I've just made a small discovery: many catalog number stems ends with "CA". Does anyone know what it may stand for?

Does anyone know what "Lpc" is? It's on a jazz soundtrack, if that helps.

Is it capitalized as you wrote it? And is it listed as an instrument?

It's otherwise possible it's a guitar

It's not capitalized. I thought it might be the guitar, but the capitalization is throwing me off.

It must be "Latin Percussion". On this page there's another guy credited for playing "Lpc". When searching for this name, most results include "percussion". And the only thing I can think "L" standing for is Latin.

That's probably right, especially since it's listed right below the C.P (Classic Percussion).

Thanks.

By the way, I don't think "Con" is supposed to be Contrabass, as it's pretty much the same as Wood bass, which is also listed for that album.

It's more likely to be conductor, as the same kanji appeared on this album, but there, conductor (most definitely) is abbreviated as "cond".

Edit: A search for the actual reading (which is very likely to be "Kouji Haijima") brings up even more conductor results:

I edited it. Thanks once again. Went with that reading too because it doesn't seem like it could be anyone else.

Figured it was contrabass since it's a jazz soundtrack.

I couldn't find what it stands for but I found that "CA" is only used for albums. The "A" probably stands for "Album".

While looking at Sister Contrast today, I found a credit for 詩, which basically seems to mean "poetry", lol. I assume this is just a poetic way to credit lyrics (okay, that was bad). But 木之本みけ is the credit, and that's Mike Kinomoto, which matches up with what we have for lyrics. Anyway, just sharing a kanji XD

Also, I can't believe I haven't expressed how awesome this thread is yet. Seriously, I'm in here all the time. I suck at Japanese and this helps compensate for that
