this week we have an interesting historical curiosity: one of a series of cassettes released by oi b.m., a legend of bangkok's escort industry in the 1980s. as founder of the "sensuality bank" and godmother of hundreds, possibly thousands, of the nation's sex workers, she was influential in part for encouraging her employees to take up with their johns whenever possible, helping to launch the field of "open-ended prostitution"1. the recordings here consist mostly of oi singing humorous lyrics, occasionally alluding to her professional life, over a synthesized backing with the occasional electric guitar lick and male back-up vocals from yai bangkruai. enjoy!

Well done rendition of "Oye Como Va", musically that is. The accompanying vocals are on another scale. Would be interesting to see English translation of the lyrics. Her singing is great. Thanx...........
