khwanchit siprachan: prap pho mai

artist: ขวัญจิต ศรีประจันต์ (khwanchit siprachan)
album: ปราบพ่อหม้าย (prap pho mai)
01. ปราบพ่อหม้าย ตอน 1 (prap pho mai, pt. 1)
02. ปราบพ่อหม้าย ตอน 2 (prap pho mai, pt. 2)
this week, a great old recording of national artist khwanchit siprachan and her troupe preforming some fantastic phleng isaeo! isaeo, characterized by its swift rhythm and intense wordplay, is a local specialty of central thailand's suphan buri province. the contestants take lighthearted jabs at each other and vie for the most cunning lyrical improvisations over an insistent backbeat. khwanchit is joined here by her sister khwanchai and their colleagues suchin siprachan and bunchok chanachot. these 4 have trained together since their teens, and their repartee is outstanding.. enjoy!

Thanks a lot for all those gems.

FYI I added the releases still available to download in Thai and Latin script on MusicBrainz: to ease the tagging process.

Do you plan to reupload the ones with dead links? (I can share the numbers if you need)
and if yes also in FLAC?

wow, thanks for all your work, there!

i would like to get all the links live again, yeah, and with FLAC as well. the problem is in my older days i wasn't backing up a lossless copy of my recordings, so there's nothing to work from in that regard. but i'd like to make new recordings anyhow, as i have better equipment and techniques now. however, i don't have access to most of those cassettes at the moment, so that's all on hold until i can get reconnected with them!

That’s great news :)

Don't hesitate to ask if I can help in a way.
