Piengpid Learvilai – Leum Chan Lean Rue (Thailand, 1960s, Super Star)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Leum Chan Lean Rue“, a Thai Funk / Luk Krung track recorded in the 60s by the singer Piengpid Learvilai, that would perfectly fit in the soundtrack of a Tarantino‘s movie – Enjoy !

You can also listen to it on my Youtube channel here : https://youtu.be/oJAMe4ZDpnc

Louise Kennedy – Puyai Lee (Thailand, 1967, Self-Produced)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Puyai Lee“, a very popular surf & rockabilly song back in the Thaïland of the 60s, strongly influenced by the occidental Ye Ye musical movement.

Sung in Thai, this song is a sarcastical reflection of miscommunication between folks, villagers and government, level of language & the way to communicate with people – Enjoy !

ADP012 – Luk Thung Fever – A Journey Into the Thai 60’s and 70’s Sound

Hi everyone !
It’s been a long time, right ?
Sincerely sorry, I was veeery busy, looking for new records for the next selections.. But now I’m back !
So let’s begin the February selections with some good 7 inches I brought back for my last travel to Thailand in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Andaman !
So, because it’s a first step for many of us into the Thai sound, I’ve prepared not one but to different mixes : the first is more funky and the second, more traditional (my favorite), represents more what was the Thai Sound at the time, with two main musical genre : Molam and Luk Thung – Enjoy !
Special Merci to Miles Cleret from Soundway Records and all the Zudrangma Team
