waiphot phetsuphan is one of thailand's most enduring stars, and deservedly so! instantly recognizable, his husky voice ranks alongside khun suraphon's as among the most powerful in luk thung, and he holds his own as both a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist as well. after getting his start in the 60's, waiphot took up the mantle of religious singer midway through his career, and began focusing his lyrical content on the life of a good buddhist; this album in particular is full of songs about the joys of young monkhood, nostalgic rememberances of temple fairs, and reminders not to forget your rice offerings! the music is an nice mix of temple drums & drum machine, xylophone & synth, thai melody & western beat, etc. charming and upbeat throughout!
