this week we get some nice old luk thung, from the charming mr. khosit nopphakhun! khosit was born and raised in samut prakan province, right outside of bangkok. he spent his early years working on a coconut farm, boiling the sap down into palm sugar... a difficult job, but one which he later insisted was to thank for strengthening his lungs & giving him the high tone of voice which audiences so adored. he made his first recordings in the early 60's with chalong wutthiwai's "roeng napha fa bangkok" band, and after thun thongchai's estrangement from the legendary "chularat" band, khosit was called in to replace him. however, it wasn't until the recording of the lead single here, "ya long bangkok", that he really found his voice. with a little imagination, maybe you can hear the sugar-smoke in his singing, there's certainly a sad sweetness to his sound... enjoy!
