Mellow Pop/folk-pop, soft-rock album acoustic with some electric elements, some electric organ and Hammond (?) organ and (kitschy use of) moog(?), with little or soft percussion, mainstream in nature with western song pop context, sung in Korean, at times with sweet dual vocals. One very different track (the worst one) with brass orchestra sounds like a communist nationalist song. Style: early 60s. Most of it is forgettable. The 15th track with fuzz guitar, piano, acoustic gu

김용만 - 힛트앨범 Recorded 1958-1966 최근입고 : 2014-05-15 This is a nice compilation of recordings from Kim Yong Man. His voice is always steering for the joy of entertainment, while moments of vibration recall the trot era; in this case it gives a happy, joyful effect. The band, with full range of sounds has elements of jazz, while it fuses styles of chachacha, mambo, boogie, trot and more. Some instruments play a few solos like with accordion and banjo, while the band’s mobility of a
I guess this is a reissue of an original old LP (with 12 songs), containing songs that often have folk songs origins, and which show a funny marching song/working song related happy and gay nature, occasionally with also a more melancholic song. In that way the tonal and singing variation in the songs is pretty varied. The arrangements, with strings, brass instruments and more show the best kind of arrangements where in each few seconds other instruments dominate at occasions
One of the more extraordinary voices is Kim Sung Ok, also because she has something of a more international allure, which more fits the Shanghai ballroom scene than the Korean market of new folk and trot style.

Tracks you can find here: 유성기로 듣던 일제시대 풍자 해학송 / The satire of Japanese imperialists heard during the Domido/Meteor period * 12 거리의 신풍경 / A new kind of scenery of the street This is a satirical song with a small trot and a bit more modern song and jazz flavours and a humorous touch. It is an original cabaret-like song, very much in a westernised 30s 'modern' style. Tracks with * are essential listens, highly suitable to present on a western show too. 유성기로 듣던 가요사 / The song tha

It felt the modern vibes
The first 9 songs of this compilation show how Kang Ho Sik must have been involved in early song music of the first movies with sound and music. This sounds more adventurous than conservative, of which the music still has the humpapa rhythms of Japanese occupation rules, but the arrangements and songs still show pleasant variations. The first track has a more classical-orchestrated feel to the music arrangements with clarinet, piano, flutes, violin and percussion. The second
