the singing twins laongdao + sakaoduean began life as champi and champa sothrabun of chachoengsao province. in their early teens, as the sisters' vocal talents became evident, their older brother dragged the two into the city, thinking to make stars of them. as it happened, they were discovered by none other than suraphon sombatcharoen! khun suraphon had been determined to acquire some female voices, in the hope of catching up to his rival of the fairer sex, phongsi woranut, whose popularity had been quickly surpassing his own. he adopted the girls, gave them their stage names ("stardust + pale moon") and took them on the road! they became an important part of suraphon's troupe, and went on to be pretty big stars in their own right! i think the twins are remembered mostly for their love songs, but their tough voices undercut any amount of lyrical schmaltziness!

a couple of the side 2 tracks are male-response style numbers, sung by two fellows i've never heard of (and who go uncredited on the tape; i had to track down their names myself!)

Sounds great. Looking forward to listening. Thanks as always. So far my favorites (if you are interested): บรรเลง โปงลาง (banleng ponglang); ชาตรี ศรีชล (chatri sichon); ดอน สอนระเบียบ (don sonrabiap); and แตรวงกองดุริยางค์ทหารบก (traewong kong duriyang thahanbok).
