Details

British instrumental wonders The Shadows (as in Cliff Richards & the Shadows) were the origin of the genre's title, also coined 'Wong Shadow' or early Thai 'String' music. Shadow records were often marketed as 'Thai Modernized Music' which it was in the truest sense. Traditional Thai melodies were given the Shadow treatment; incorporating rock, surf, a-go-go, exotica, soul, blues, Latin and other worldly styles of the times. Inventive compositions and instrumental genius meet the occasional odd vocal arrangement and the results range from plaintive guitar and organ-driven lullabies to full-blown electric garage folk-psychedelia! Featured on this collection are a handful of the leading recorded artists from the time; P.M. Pocket Music, The Son of P.M., P.M.7, Jupiter and Johnny Guitar. Throughout the 1960s, these groups forged a unique and highly self-referential Thai sound. Tracks: 1. Luk Tung Klong Yao 2. Kack Toi Mor 3. Koisun Ching 4. Pama Rum Kwan 5. Mon du Dow 6. Klong Yao 7. Taloong Jun Loum 8. Susie Wong 9. Pone Tala Pone 10. Lhow Lenum 11. Cho Cho Chan 12. Sawan Bangkok 13. Lao Kratob Mai 14. Plaeng Yiepoun 15. Lum Jow Praya 16. Pone Tala Pne 17. Bangkok by Night
