this week, a great album from late luk thung star yodrak salakchai! yodrak, from way up in phichit, was a sensation through the 70's, 80's & 90's (he even sang the theme to the tv version of 'mon rak luk thung'!), but finding his original albums in thailand today might be a challenge, as his passing last year triggered a massive nationwide sell-out (retrospectives of course, likely still abound!) i actually found this tape a week or so before the event, strangely enough, in chiang mai; though not home to a large luk thung fanbase, the record's local appeal may have been enhanced by inclusion of the song "khao soi", written about the city's fantastic 'signature dish'. the music on here is very lively & rock-influenced, featuring some blaring trumpet & nice, skittery organ work. enjoy!
