okay, this one is awesome. heavy luk thung/molam rock songs; big synths, country-style shredding & distortion from the guitars, phimpha wailing over everything. phimpha is from chaiyaphum, and i think she was a pretty big star in her time. i found this tape, surprisingly enough, in chiang mai (not a major location for country music) and had it on during the terrifying north-to-northeast bus ride through the mountains of loei. hope it will go a ways to evoke that experience for all of you listening at home. the last 4 are karaoke tracks, so singing along is encouraged.

Here are the scans of the liner notes from the back cover of the Thai LP (CTR219) that I posted a while ago on my blog. The text is readable on these scans. I put all of the scans in a zip file and the zip file is at this site:
