after last week's re-post, i figured this week it'd be good to bring out some new sounds from chatri for everyone! as told previously, chatri, from chonburi, got his start in samniang muangthong's ruam daokrachai band, but left to help suraphon's wife sinuan rehabilitate the sombatcharoen band (primarily as a songwriter) after the star's death in 1968. within a year he had founded his own band & cut his first records. this album features those early tracks, alongside some answer & duel songs from wanphen dueansipsong & dam daensuphan. while the sounds here are more straightforward luk thung than last week, the wheezing accordions, strange entrancing rhythms & chatri's rough-cut vocals make it a standout for me. enjoy!!

Hi there. This should be great as usual but is there any problem with mediafire? I get an error message from them. thanks for the great job you do on this incredible blog.

Indeed, Peter, the stupid trolling copyright bots who now rule mediafire have deleted your file :-( If you reup elsewhere w/b appreciated - if not possible, I appreciate you anyway!
