this week, another great cassette from the late police corporal yodrak salakchai! yodrak was from phichit in northern thailand, the youngest of 8 kids. after losing his father at age 7, yodrak & his siblings started singing ramwong music in local bars to help support themselves and their mother, earning enough to finance their schooling. after high school, yodrak himself moved down to nakhon sawan for a steady gig at a restaurant. here he started in with luk thung style (particularly the songs of phraiwan lukphet) and was picked up by a local radio dj, who passed him onto impresario chonlathi thanthong. under chonlathi, he came to be one of the biggest names in luk thung, from the late 70s until his untimely passing in 2008. while this cassette is a bit heavier on the ballads than others of his i've posted, fans of the thai disco sound should still find some enjoyment! and if you're into the syrupy luk thung ballad, of course, this has you written all over it. enjoy!
