The album, ON THE BORDER, was released by the unit named "Harry and Mac", composed of Kubota Makoto and Haruomi Hosono in 1974, which is after
Kubota's solo album, Machibouke. had been released, is finally reissued in 2024 on analog.

This album, recorded in three locations including Woodstock, New Orleans, and Cajun during a journey in 2000, is a road movie-like creation by the original
traveler Makoto Kubota, who transformed the local sounds into swamp and country music vibes. Heavyweights of American rock such as Garth Hudson,
Levon Helm, and John Sebastian, who also participated in "Road to Louisiana" by Harry and Mac, contributed to this work.

Featuring an eclectic mix of genres and beats, this album offers a unique sound experience with each track.
With Kubota Makoto's expansive vocals which seem to lift the listener to celestial heights, and the splendid sounds of instruments, remastered by himself,
this long-awaited reissue promises to bring you an exhilarating experience.

Due to constraints on the recording time of the vinyl record, the three tracks "Blessing", "Oaxaca", and "Rain on the Border" included in the CD/digital distribution
are omitted from this edition
