Haino related detailed episodes for each record, most of which were based on his personal memories. Therefore, please don't regard the above list as Haino's absolute all time favorites or recommendations.

Photos of the lecture and record covers are provided below, except for #4. The cover for #4 is not available. Haino found this LP in the discount box at record store and bought it as he was interested in the artwork. The LP was one of the anonymous cheap reissue series of classical music, which featured existing painting from a kind of art archive. When he listened to the record without any expectation, he was impressed with the music of Messiaen. He said this LP was the entrance for his interest into modern music. This seems to be one of the good examples of Haino's personal episodes/memories.
