this week, some great isan groove from the one & only dao bandon! dao was born and raised in yasothon province, the son of poor farmers. after 4th grade, his family couldn't afford to continue sending him to school, and he was given into monkhood. it was here that he realized his significant vocal gifts, by way of the rhythmic chant & preaching required by his vocation. he was soon discovered by songwriter thepphabut satirotchomphu, who guaranteed him a career as molam when he left the monastery. dao soon gave up his robes, and theppabhut made good on his promise.. dao quickly won success singing his luk thung-influenced molam, and would in fact become the first molam ever to sell one million copies! he was frequently in the charts both with his own recordings and with songs he crafted for his many disciples (one of whom won a spot on this album!). a major figure in the music of isan, dao bandon now sings for you! enjoy!

glad you like it!
hmm.. i think i've seen 2522 (1979) as a possible date, which sounds about right, i'd say..

tried DLing this twice now and doesnt work, but as no one else seems to have had problems i can only assume its TrueCorp's useless internet service at fault, so I'll try again tomorrow.

really want to hear this album. so thanks, both for this and the site in general...

sorry you're having trouble.. being at TrueCorp's mercy myself now, i can sympathize! let me know if you're still unable to get the album, maybe we can work out another way!

I LOVE this record!! Thanks for the upload, I'm not so sure of your opinion on the Sublime Frequencies stuff--but it would RULE if you could post/send me another artist featured on one of their comps full record...... Kwanjai and Kwanjit Sriripijian (sp?). I LOVE the two songs on the comp but when i search for full records their all post 1980 and pretty lame... any help?? Thanks in advance, this blog RULES!!!!

thanks anonymous!
you'll be pleased to know i have some stuff coming up by khwanchit. it's some of her later work... not 80's-sounding, but rather in a more traditional folk vein.. hope you will enjoy it!
