Thai Pop Spectacular (1960's-1980's) CD SF032

CD SF032
Thai Pop Music from the 1960’s-1980’s, every single track a winner! Surf guitars, funky organs, tight horn sections, and amazing vocals are assembled here in this compilation of retro-pop grooves from Bangkok and beyond. Featuring the “Queen of Luk Thung”, the “Shadow Music” style of Johnny Guitar, a few Thai trademark comedy songs, and much more. Romping Disco, seductive Thai soul, wah-wah pedals, and crazy arrangements help round out this astounding set.

Thai pop history has been largely ignored and neglected by the international musical community for far too long. By the late 20th century, Thai pop music had developed as many faces as localized roots music such as Molam or styles like Luk Thung or Luk Krung, (each with their own respective pop-sectors). Bangkok – always the hub of the Thai recording industry – attracted musicians and singers from across the country that were both informed by tradition and inspired by the wealth of international sounds entering the region via radio and phonograph. Jazz, for instance, had a profound influence on early Thai pop music, the King of Thailand himself being a noted Jazz composer.
This superb collection features modern Thai music styles combining with elements of surf, rock, funk, disco and comedy, revealing the use of clever instrumentation, brilliant vocals, great arrangements, twisted breaks, and resourceful production techniques. Discover the Queen of Luk Thung, the 1960s “Shadow Music” sound, classic tracks from Thai films, blazing examples of Bangkok disco from the 1970s, legendary Thai comedy Pop, and the most outrageous version of "The Night Chicago Died" you'll ever encounter. Thick horn sections, wah-wah guitars, tight drums, and funky organs help round out this astounding set which proves beyond a doubt that the Thai were a completely unique and powerful force during the 1960's, 70's & 80's global popular music explosion.
