Also, the Bandcamp version of the comp only has ten tracks?

Yeah, you gotta cop the CDs on that one. Nice package, twice as many songs, thorough liner notes

Same. In case anyone hasn't heard it, Spencer Doran's Music Interiors was the predecessor mix to the LITA comp (a few tracks overlap, but it's its own journey):
Music Interiors Vol. 2 was Italian ambient/minimalism/electronica from the same era (worthy of its own thread tbh)

Also how sick is Yoshimura's Wet Land?
Spencer's mixes tipped me to so many great albums. Big debt owing to him.

this was the first track on the comp that really blew my mind. I listened to the full album (it's hard to find because it's actually NOT Joe Hisashi, but rather a band called "Wonder City Orchestra" for which Hisashi was the synth guy for) and it's nothing like this, it's kind of an odd electrofunk album with a lot of vocals on it. The context of the track there vs. on this compilation is way different.
One nice discovery was the Interior album. For some reason it's oddly cheap, I was able to get a good copy for about 10 bucks. This is my favorite track from it:
Of the albums from here I know, most of them are pretty unlike the track that was selected. That makes this comp even cooler IMO, since it stands as its own thing.

Some of you might enjoy this mix which crosses over into these sounds in parts - “Polyphonic Cosmos (Japanese Technopop and Synthscapes 1979 - 85)"

Thanks for the link to the tape, stirmonster!
One of the highlights of lockdown was exploring and starting to catalogue this stuff. I have a Spotify playlist, with the dumb title Japanbient: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2Vx4Vo2u531byq3wSmurPL?si=9baf74909e6646f0
