Historical facts that lead to He6

- from Key Boys, Add4 to He5- :

"Kim Hong-Tak (1944~) was one of the 2 leading figures in the early days of "Group Sound Era", of course with Shin Jung-Hyun(1938~). Kim Hong Tak was guitarist and naturally leader of the group. Here, it seems better to put aside the question " Who was the first?". Because with this question of 'the first' or more properly 'the Origin', the ansters will not is the same according to the questioner's perspectives.


For example, if we take one perspective, in this case that of 'Popularity', it will be the Key Boys of Kim Hong Tak which was followed soon afterwards by the Add4 of Shin Jung-Hyun.


A little remark. This Key Boys is not the 'Later' Key Boys who sang the smash hits like "Let's go to the seashore". or "Memories of the seaside", but the 'Earlier' Keyboys. They played some 'Package shows', under the name of the Lock & Key in the stages of the 8 th U.S army which settled in South Korea. Also they played at some new venues like 'Music listen Rooms', 'Live Music Salons', or the traditional ones like in Cinema.


[Cf. At that time the concert was held frequently in Cinema Houses. It was called as 'Cinema Show].


With these latter acts they were known to general 'Korean' public. They were nicknamed as the 'Beatles of Korea' - At that time this meant more similar to a 'cover band of the Beatles'.. (Cf. Because the stages in 8th Army of U.S. was for the Korean in the forbidden area for the evident reason of security. So generally a Korean group or artist who played there was a totally unknown figure to general Korean public).


In the mid-60s which prevailed by the worldwide phenomenon ' Beatlesmanis', the Key Boys, in molding the archetype of the Rock band (or Rock Group) who 'sing and play' (With the Kkokkirri Brothers, the Fools, the Kim Chies, became the pioneers of a new cultural phenomenon (we may now be able to say that it was the early days of 'Pop culture' in Korea). And here lies one symbolic fact concerning the popular culture in general that 1964-1965, the period of their debuts coincides with that of the birth of the 'Weekly Magazine'. With the time, the members of the Key Boys left the group: some Cha Jung Rak and Cha Do Gyun going to solos, some Yoon Hang Ki joining to the Korean Army's entertainment Unit which was sent to the Viet-Nam War, and finally Kim Hong Tak too. But Kim Hong Tak had launched his career of guitarist in a rock group. It was the He 5.


Precisely speaking, the He5 was not launched by Kim hong Tak. According to the memories of its members, the group was found in the winter of 1967 'the five young guys' all belonged to the Wha-Yange Entertainment Inc. had set up the group together; Han Woong (Rhythm guitar and vocal) issued from the Four Guys, Cho Yong Nam (lead guitar and vocal) from the Shin Jung Hyun and the Jokers, Yu Young Chun (vocal) from the Silver Coins, Han Kwang Soo (Bass) from the Kee Jin Sung's Orchestra. For the connoisseurs, they were all 'top-class' musicians from the leading groups of that time.


And in this period Kim Hong Tak was still in the Key Boys. (Cf. Wha-Yang Entertainment Inc. was one of the enterprises who dealt wht matters concerning the distribution of musicians and entertainers for the 8th Army of USA.- tiwh the Universal, Dae-Young,Dong IL).


The He 5 begins tis gigs at the Seven Club in I-Tae-Won (a small quarter of Seoul which is now well know even internationally for its diverse markets, restaurants and bars mainly for the foreign customers. This quarter was the bassist Han Kwang Soo soon afterwards was a challenge for the He5. Kim Hong Tak was recruited as a lead guitarist (So-called 'first guitarist' at that time) and Cho Yong Nam, the original lead guitarist of the band changes his speciality to bass guitar. The joining of Kim Hong Tak not only strengthens the group's musical forces but also gives the occasion to the group of presenting themselves to 'general Korean public'. So ends a 'Boy' period of Key Boys, comes a new era of the 'He'."


(taken from liner notes on He6 "Would you gogo Sound vol 2")


Folkie Jin :

"HE5 & HE6 is another group from great Korean rock guitarist Kim Hong Tak. They were the most popular Korean rock group at 1960-1970s. They played heavy and hard psychedelic songs on live shows but they couldn't make this music style on albums because of record company's pressures.


They gave them some discretionary power to have them created the results which they had on He5/ "Merry christmas psychedelic album" and He6 "Would you Go Go dance" with He6 "Vol.1" and "Vol.2" But most their fans couldn't understand the tracks of these albums so they were forced to change to a more popular music style. At least they had their chances to make some albums with the music style they wanted after they became the famous rock group."


About the album : It is -except for the last track- an all instrumental album. The first track is a good garage psych track with Shadows-like guitar. The second track, "White Christmas", is a go-go garage psych. It is left out for time limitation reasons. The third track is purely go-go beat styled, still enjoyable. Some other tracks are almost kitschy & funny too, more a go-go/psych styled. Funny and serious at the same time is the 13 ! minute track, which start with a Shadows-like a go-go psych version of "Jingle bells", then suddenly turns into a fantastic psychedelic interpretation of (the long version of) Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" !? -including the drum solo- (with great guitar) and then coming back, over some fragment of "Paint it Black", to the "Jingly bells" tune. Pretty unique and here also a successful idea! A similar successful mix is done on the last track. Recommended album!


Last track is influenced by black music like from James Brown etc..very "black" and funky.


https://masterleemovies.wordpress.com/2007/12/20/he5-merry-christmas-psychedelic-sound-thl-80-1969/ :


When Master Lee gets into the X-Mas spirit, this beauty by He5 (THL-80, 1969) – not to be confused with He6 – is among the albums he plays over and over. It contains mostly instrumental tracks, which is somewhat strange for a Christmas record, but it does allow the Master to sing along. It offers a little swing, but mostly psychedelic instrumental scatting-like guitar jams and chords. The long Jingle Bells cover on the B-side does not have a Korean Sinatra, unfortunately (for this, check out E Paksa’s fabtastic X-mas album), but it covers Iron Butterfly’s In-a-gadda-da-vida (yes, again: Master Lee is told there have been maaaaany Korean versions of this song), as well as a snippet of Paint it Black, while maintaining Jingle Bells as the main theme… An unusual feat considering the censorship committee’s ambitions at the time.

“Can you link to this so the $--- I spent on this record will give someone some psychedelic Christmas cheer?” - Egon

I can’t front. When it comes to Korean Christmas records, my man Cut Chemist has me beat. He returned from Seoul earlier this year with some insane Christmas Carol record that contained possibly the funkiest track I’ve ever heard on a Korean record (Though my man Jason up in Toronto has been hipping me to some that sound incredible in their own rights, I haven’t heard ‘em yet). But I had to get up in the Christmas mix myself (I was getting tired of playing the James Brown Soulful Christmas album and David Axelrod’s Messiah around the folks’ place every December) so I bought the He 5’s Merry Christmas Psychedelic Sound for Xmas ‘07 rotation.

I do love the He 5’s later incarnation, the He 6. Their first three records under that name are amongst my favorite Korean “group sound” psychedelic albums, and their cover of the Rare Earth’s “Get Ready” is probably my favorite Korean track at this moment. But this record, seemingly their first (?) is quite the novelty: all Christmas songs (a la “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”), done in an instrumental, garagey psychedelic fashion, just “acceptable” enough for the ears of aging hippies to play at your parent’s house on Christmas morning… But their cover of “Jingle Bells” morphs, about a minute and a half into the track, into a ten minute freak out cover of “In A Gadda Da Vida” and, after the drum break, wails into “Paint It Black.” The returns to “Jingle Bells” again. Yikes.Then, immediately after, the He 5 play “Auld Lang Syne” for about two minutes before they, in the words of my boy Cut, “go at it like Billy Ball” and introduce their band. In broken English. With a drum break to boot. I once read a Korean website review the record and say: “Last track is influenced by black music like from James Brown etc.. very ‘black’ and funky.” Uh, yeah. It makes no sense but they’re really going for it. I like this one almost as much as Shin Jung Hyun’s cover of “Funky Broadway” on his (what else) In A Gadda Da Vida album.

"South Korea's He 5, in its later incarnation as He 6, offered some of the fuzziest, funkiest music to arise from Seoul's Psychedelic '70s. In "Merry Christmas Psychedelic Album" (Universal South Korea "THL-80") there are all Christmas songs, done in an instrumental, Garagey-Psychedelic fashion. But their cover of "Jingle Bells" morphs, about a minute and a half into the track, into a ten minute freak out cover of "In A Gadda Da Vida" and, after the drum break, wails into "Paint It Black".


He5 and He6 is a group from great Korean Rock guitarist "Kim Hong Tak". They were the most popular Korean Rock group at 1960-1970s. They played heavy and hard Psychedelic songs on live shows but they couldn't make this music style on albums because of record company's pressures.

히파이브 (HE 5) - Merry Christmas [LP] 본 상품은 수령 후 단순변심 반품이 불가합니다. [ 180g / 라이너 노트 첨부 / 리마스터 ] 히파이브 노래 | (주)엠알씨 | 2019년 12월 10일. -LP reissue only-

Reissue of late 2019, just in time before Christmas of that year. The first track already is a weird take on "Silent Night" with Fuzz on second guitar harmonies to a Ventures like lead on the Christmas theme and a freak-out on it too. "White Christmas" is a relaxed fuzz guitar interpretation on "White Christmas" with nice jangling rhythm guitars and a relaxed rhythm. Also this doesn't take long before a small psychedelic bluesy solo is interpreted with it. Funny that such interpretations happened in South Korea and not in the US. "Santa Claus is coming to Town" is a bit more up tempo and with a Ventures/Shadows sound, is fun to hear. Also this doesn't take long before a blues groove has been added. "Silver Bells" is a fine, somewhat relaxed take. Also the next tracks, like "Jingle Bell" and "Red Nosed Reindeer" is rather relaxed and bubbling, freaking out only a little bit in the end (the tracks are in fact the other way around on the album). The real winner is the mixture of a first rather safe Jingle Bells with a sudden improvised and jammed switch towards a powerful Iron Butterfly's In A Gadda Da Vida, absolute freaking out guitars and drums and I guess certain sudden elements of Paint It Black before turning to Jingle Bells again. Christmas will never be the same after hearing this. The last track improvises a bit further on "Auld Lang Syne" turning it into a wild psychedelic jam too and black soul James Brown-alike funky part.

"Psychedelic album that collectors have been waiting for a long time-HE5 'MERRY CHRISTMAS' The theme of the album, 'Jingle Bells,' starts off as a normal but somewhere in the middle a fantastic improvisation turns the track into the psychedelic song 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida' by American legendary rock band Iron Butterfly. Kim Yong-ho's long-awaited drum solo finilizes the final piece. This album is a legendary rare album that was rumored to have been sold for 2 million won to a Japanese collector in the early 2000s when the song LP price jumped to heaven. " Excerpt from Choi Sung-Liner Note


Radio show playlist:


Psychefolk Radioshow comments : "The first track is 60's psych styled with sweet vocal harmonies and birds sounds. The second chosen track is similar, and has great additional electric guitar solo's and hand percussion in stead of drums. The third track has great electric guitars ! The covers on the B-side, like "Proud Mary" and "Aquarius let the sunshine in" and "Let the sun shine" I like much less than the original songs. Especially the first side is highly recommended to 60's psych fans!"

The first 60s styled track has beautiful harmony voices, is a song with real bird sounds incorporated. It is a great almost romantic song with band and orchestrations. The second track still fit perfectly with that, has a nice smooth band sound and fine bass drive and rhythm guitars. The next track starts with a fuzz guitar intro, has interesting rhythm changes and really beautiful jam-like psychedelic moves, which even for a western-based band would be considered fantastic. It has brilliantly included elements of a Korean folk song while remaining 60s beat psych. "Bad Love" is a bit more in the direction of early Beatles, sounds more like a romantic ballad. "Whang Castle" is another psychedelic masterpiece as with an extended normal song foundation.

Side B is dedicated to cover tracks. "Proud Mary" (Creedence Clearwater Revival) is a fine but not exceptional interpretation for what concerns adding too much of its own interpretation, the cover itself is fine enough. The second track originally by Bananarama also is fine enough but doesn't show the best of a new band. Also the track by ASAP Mob is performed with a certain power but for me doesn't add anything new to the original. The Aquarius song by The 5th Dimension is already a step closer to psychedelic sound. It also shows a bit better a fine enough interpretation of their own. "Evil Ways" (Willie Bobo), also known from Santana brings us back to kind of Beatles harmonies and a bluesy soul drive, which through repetition in rhythm and a solo organ turns it into a more psychedelic sound, which makes a pretty wild ending.

1960년대 후반 미8군의 최고 실력자들만을 뽑아 만든 슈퍼그룹이었던 히 식스의 데뷔작. 기타의 김홍탁(키보이스 출신), 베이스의 조용남(신중현과 조커스 출신)을 주축으로 권용남, 유상윤, 이영덕, 김용중을 영입해 멤버들의 탁월한 기량과 음악성을 견인해낸 수작이자 창작곡의 비중을 높여 밴드의 방향성을 잡은 앨범. 히 파이브에서 이어진 계보임을 확인시켜주는 빅 히트곡 ‘초원의 사랑’,과 ‘말하라 사랑이 어떻게 왔는가를’을 비롯해 향후 진로에 이정표 역할을 록 버전 ‘울릉도 타령’과 ‘황성 옛터’ . 그리고 당시 코스모스 클럽에서 히 식스 가 어떤 음악을 주된 레퍼토리로 삼았는지에 대한 단초를 제공하는 생동감 넘치는 곡들로 구성되어 있다. [대중성과 음악성을 모두 낚아챈 히 식스의 데뷔작]_ 부분발췌 히 식스(He 6)를 이야기하기 앞서 언급할 밴드가 있다. 바로 히 파이브(He 5)다. 밴드 이름으로 볼 때 5인조 밴드에서 6인조 밴드가 되었음을 알 수 있지만, 그 과정은 단순히 한 명의 멤버가 보강된 게 아니고 밴드가 완전히 분해되었다가 다시 조합되었다고 보는 편이 맞다. 히 파이브는 1960년대 후반, 김홍탁(키 보이스 출신), 한웅(여가수 장세정의 아들이고 포 가이스 출신), 조용남(신중현과 조커스 출신), 유영춘(실버 코인스 출신), 김용호(이 시스터즈 멤버의 동생)가 함께 했던 그룹으로, 진한 허스키 보이스로 강한 흡입력을 가지고 있던 보컬리스트 한웅과, 사이키델릭과 하드록에 영향 받은 김홍탁의 연주, 소울 취향인 조용남의 베이스 등, 당시 미8군의 최고 실력자들만은 뽑아 만든 슈퍼그룹이었다. 조용남이 김홍탁을 스카우트하기 위해 그 당시 구하기 어려웠던 ‘깁슨 기타’를 선물로 줬다는 일화, 또 히 파이브 때문에 밴드의 얼굴들을 뺐긴 다른 밴드들은 존속 자체가 흔들렸다는 이야기는 유명하다. 김홍탁과 조용남을 주축으로 권용남, 유상윤, 이영덕, 김용중을 영입하며 결성된 히 식스는 같은 해 7월 시민회관에서 열린 ‘제2회 전국 그룹사운드 경연대회’에서 최고상을 수상한다. 또 히 파이브가 멤버 문제와 경제적인 문제 때문에 해산한지 얼마 되지는 않았지만, 다시금 사회의 분위기는 새롭게 결성된 히 식스를 비롯한 밴드들에게 이롭게 돌아갔다. 매일경제의 1970년 9월 5일 기사 ‘고개 드는 보컬팀, 팝송서 전환 9월 중 음반공세도’는 이러한 당시의 상황을 대변한다. 그리고 히 식스는 든든한 시스템의 뒷받침과 유리한 사회의 분위기 속에서 1970년 10월 14일, 데뷔앨범 [He 6 Vol.1]을 발매한다. 게이트 폴드로 제작된 초반 재킷은 당시 이들에 대한 코스모스 사단의 기대를 그대로 반영하고 있으며, 음반에 수트를 차려 입은 멤버들의 개인 사진과 학력까지 기재한 것은 히 파이브에서 이어지는 깔끔하고 말쑥한 이미지를 통해 당시 젊은이들에게 어필하려는 의도로 보인다. [He 6 Vol.1]을 살펴보면 우선 A면 수록곡에 번안곡을 하나도 담지 않아 히 파이브 시절에 비해서 눈에 띄게 창작곡의 비중이 높아졌다는 점을 확인할 수 있다. 히 식스가 히 파이브에서 이어진 계보임을 확인 시키는 초원 시리즈 연작 가운데 두 번째 파트인 ‘초원의 사랑’, ‘말하라 사랑이 어떻게 왔는가를’의 빅 히트는 밴드 사운드에 대한 공감대를 일부 한정된 계층이 아닌 일반 대중으로 확장시키며 단숨에 대중적인 인기를 한 몸에 받는 70년대 초반의 신데렐라 그룹으로 거듭날 수 있는 계기를 마련했다. 그리고 이러한 인기는 이후 이들의 자유로운 활동에 있어서의 청신호로 작용하게 된다. 또 전래 민요를 편곡한 ‘울릉도 타령’과 기존 가요를 리메이크한 ‘황성 옛터’에서 들려주는 록의 기본에 입각한 원초적인 연주는 향후 이들의 음악의 진로에 이정표 역할을 하고 있다. B면에 담긴 번안곡은 당시 코스모스 클럽에서 히 식스가 어떤 음악을 주된 레퍼토리로 삼았는지에 대한 단초를 제공하는 곡들로, 라이브감 있게 녹음된 자연스러운 연주를 감상할 수 있다. 앞서 이야기했던 것처럼 히 식스는 이 한 장의 음반을 통해 상업성과 음악성이라는 두 마리 토끼를 한꺼번에 잡아내며 일약 국내를 대표하는 밴드로 우뚝 서게 된다. 그리고 60년대와 70년대, 미8군 무대와 일반 무대의 사이에서 창작곡의 비중을 높이며 앞으로 밴드가 활동해 나갈 방향성을 확실하게 잡았다는 의미 역시도 부여할 수 있다. 또 히 식스의 이러한 성공은 멤버들의 탁월한 연주기량과 음악성이 든든한 백그라운드와 만난 이상적인 결과라고 할 수 있다. 60년대 하모니 보컬을 강조하는 소위 ‘그룹사운드’의 성격은 이 음반에도 그 흔적을 남기고 있지만, 분명 히 파이브의 그것과는 확실하게 구분되며 리드 보컬 위주의 사운드로 변모하고 있음을 확인할 수 있다. 그리고 이러한 변화는 이어질 두 번째 정규음반의 가장 커다란 특징 가운데 하나로 자리 잡게 된다. 글 송명하 (파라노이드 편집장)



"He 6 debut in the late 1960s was made by only the best from the Eighth Army. Based upon on Kim Hong-tak (from Key Boys) and Cho Yong-nam (from Shin Joong-hyun and Jokers) as base, he recruited Kwon Yong-nam, Yoo Sang-yoon, Lee Young-deok and Kim Yong-joong to draw the members' outstanding skills and musicality, thereby increasing the weight of the band. The big hits, like The Love of the Fields, and How the Love Comes, tell us that this is a progress from the He-5, as well as the extra versions of Ulleungdo Tayeong and Hwangseong Ancient Ruins. It is composed of lively songs that provide a glimpse into what music He6 used as the main repertoire at the Cosmos Club.


[His Six's debut LP capturing both publicity and musicality]- Excerpt


There's another band to mention before talking about He Six. This is He five. The band name suggests that the five-member band has become a six-member band, but the process is more than just one member being reinforced, because the band is completely disassembled and then reassembled. Hi Five was in the late 1960s, Kim Hong-tak (from Key Boys), Han Woong (the son of female singer Jang Se-jeong and from Po-ga-is), Jo Yong-nam (from Shin Joong-hyun and the Jokers), Yoo Young-chun (from Silver Coins), and Kim Yong-ho (from the Pearl (?) Sisters) The eighth Army's top performers, including his vocalist Hanwoong, who had strong suction power with a deep husky voice, Kim Hong-Tak influenced by psychedelic and hard rock, and the bass of Choe Yong-nam, the soul's soul, It was a super group pulled out. It is famous for the story that Cho Yong-nam gave the Gibson guitar, which was difficult to obtain at the time, to scout Kim Hong-tak, and that other bands that shook the band's faces because of Hi Five are famous.


Formed by recruiting Kwon Yong-nam, Yoo Sang-yoon, Lee Young-deok and Kim Yong-joong as the main actors, Kim Hong-tak and Cho Yong-nam, He six won the best prize at the 2nd National Group Sound Contest held in the same year in July. It wasn't long before He Five was dismissed because of member and economic issues, but again the atmosphere of society benefited the newly formed He-six and other bands. The September 5, 1970 article of Maeil's economy, “The Vocal Team Uplifting, the Musical Offensive during September's Transition to Pop Songs,” represents the situation at that time. He6 releases his debut album [He 6 Vol.1] on October 14, 1970, backed by a strong system and a favorable society. The early jacket, made of gate folds, reflects Cosmos's expectations of them at that time, and the personal photographs and educational background of the members dressed in suits on the record are recorded in a neat and elegant image following Hi Five. It seems to appeal to you.


Looking at [He 6 Vol.1], it can be seen that the weight of the original song was noticeably higher than that of Hi-Five because it did not contain any translation songs in the A side song. The second part of the grassland series, confirming that He Six is ​​a genealogy from Hi Five, the big hits of 'Meadow's Love' and 'How Said Love Came' is a consensus on the band's sound. In the early 70s, Cinderella became a popular opportunity to become a popular Cinderella group. This popularity then serves as a green light for their free activities. In addition, the original performance based on the basics of rock from “Ulleungdo Tayeong”, which composed traditional folk songs, and “Hwangseong Ancient Ruins,” which remakeed existing songs, are playing a role in the future of their music. The song B on the B side provides a clue as to what kind of music Hesix used as the main repertoire at the Cosmos Club at that time, and you can enjoy a lively recorded natural performance.


As I mentioned earlier, Hesix stands out as one of Korea's leading bands by capturing two strong interests, a commercial and musical one, both at once. In addition, it can also be implied that the 60s and 70s increased the proportion of creative songs between the US 8th stage stage and the general stage and secured the direction of the band's future activities. His sixth success is the ideal result of meeting the members' excellent performance and musical background. The so-called 'group sound', which emphasizes harmony vocals in the 60's, also leaves its tracks, but it is clearly distinguished from that of five and is transforming into a lead-vocal sound. And this change is one of the biggest features of the second regular album."

[밴드의 최전성기에 발표한 소중한 기록]_ 부분발췌 히 식스(He 6)의 공식 두 번째 음반이다. 이 음반이 발표됐던 1971년, 히 식스는 그야말로 인기의 상종가를 치며 쉴 새 없는 활동을 벌였다. 우선 1971년 5월 30일 제1회 선데이서울컵 쟁탈 보컬그룹 경연대회 결선에서 키 보이스를 누르고 그랑프리를 받았으며, 같은 해 7월 13일 제2회 플레이보이컵 쟁탈 보컬그룹 경연대회에서도 1970년에 이어 최고상을 받았다. 심사위원단은 히 식스가 우승을 한 결정적인 요인으로 ‘앙상블’을 꼽았다. 탁월한 연주력을 기반을 한 안정된 사운드는 당시 히 식스의 가장 커다란 장점이었다. 여기에 히 식스는 1970년에 발표한 정식 데뷔음반을 통해 스스로 제시한 과제를 음반을 통해 풀어 나갔다. 과제는 바로 창작력 보강과 솔로 보컬 체제의 완성이었다. 히 식스가 1971년에 발표한 음반 가운데 정규 2집과 [Go Go Sound '71 He 6와 함께 고고를!]을 제외한 나머지 한 장은 이후 히 식스의 음반에 수록될 ‘당신은 몰라’가 임성훈의 버전으로 처음 담긴 [내 님이 그리워 - 김홍탁 작품집]이다. 이 음반에는 선우영아, 임성훈, 송혜경 등 객원 싱어의 노래가 김홍탁의 편곡과 히 식스의 연주로 담겼다. 이 앨범 역시 번안곡의 비중이 높긴 하지만 김홍탁이 직접 작곡한 4곡이 담겼다는 점에 주목할 만하다. ‘창작곡을 만들 필요를 느끼지 못했던’ 히 파이브 시절과 달리 히 식스의 활동에서 창작이라는 행위는 무척 중요한 부분으로 떠올랐다. 때문에 데뷔앨범 발표 당시 스스로 부여했던 과제의 퍼즐들이 맞춰지는 과정이라는 점에서도 커다란 의미를 부여할 수 있는 음반이다. 히 식스의 1집과 2집 사이에 외형적으로 가장 큰 변화가 있다면 멤버의 변화를 들 수 있다. 1집 멤버 가운데 재즈 공부를 위해 일본으로 유학을 떠난 김용중 대신 박인수와는 또 다른 매력으로 흑인음악을 잘 소화했던 보컬리스트 최헌이 가입한 것이다. 때문에 히 식스의 사운드는 이전에 비해 솔 음악의 비중이 높아졌다. 최헌은 히 식스 가입 이전 이남이와 함께 챠밍 가이스의 멤버로 미8군 무대에서 활동했는데, 이남이의 표현에 의하자면 ‘스카우트’되어 히 식스에 가입했다. 1960년대 하모니 보컬 스타일의 사운드를 탈피해 리드 보컬을 갖춘 본격적인 록밴드로 변모하려는 밴드의 의도는 이렇게 새로운 멤버의 영입과 함께 구체적인 모습으로 드러났다. 히 식스의 공식 두 번째 음반의 재킷에는 데뷔앨범과 마찬가지로 재킷의 앞면 상단에 ‘Cosmos Series’라는 문구가 찍혀있다. 계속해서 이들의 든든한 백그라운드로 ‘코스모스 사단’이 존재한다는 이야기다. 수록곡 가운데 최헌의 솔 스타일 가창의 매력을 잘 살린 오티스 레딩(Otis Redding) 원곡의 ‘I've Been Loving You Too Long’에서 들을 수 있는 스타일은 지금까지 히 파이브나 히 식스가 음반을 통해 들려줬던 어떤 곡과도 다른 새로운 출발점이었다. 원곡의 브라스 파트 대신 흐느적거리는 키보드 연주와 퍼즈 사운드 기타의 전방배치로 더욱 록적인 사운드로 변모한 슬라이 앤 더 패밀리 스톤(Sly & the Family Stone)의 커버버전 ‘Dance To The Music’이나 ‘Sing A Simple Song’, 감미로운 알앤비 넘버 ‘I'll Be There’ 역시 이 음반의 색깔을 검은 색으로 규정짓는 트랙들이다. 또 최헌의 샤우팅을 비롯 멤버간의 뛰어난 합을 자랑하는 ‘Dance To The Music’에서는 당시 히 식스의 공연 모습을 간접적으로 경험할 수 있다. 이렇게 라이브감 있는 녹음은 히 파이브의 크리스마스 캐럴집에서 시작해 [Go Go Sound '71 He 6와 함께 고고를!]의 실험성으로 이어지는 연결고리로 작용한다. 앞서 살펴본 것처럼 1971년은 히 식스에게 있어서 대중적인 인기는 물론 음악적인 면에 있어서도 최전성기라고 볼 수 있으며 이러한 밴드의 상황은 각종 경연대회 우승과 전례 없는 넉 장의 디스코그래피라는 확실한 결과물로 남았다. ‘코스모스’라는 꼬리표를 떼어내고 이듬해 발매한 명반 [사랑의 상처 / 아름다운 인형]은 이렇게 치열하게 자신들의 영역을 확장해 나가며 국내 밴드 음악의 최전선에 섰던 1971년 히 식스의 활동이 있었기 때문에 가능했던 결과물이었다. 때문에 유사하지만 각각 개성 강한 수록곡을 담았던 히 식스의 디스코그래피 가운데 [HE6 Vol.2]는 데뷔앨범과 세 번째 음반 사이에서 밴드의 방향타를 확실하게 잡을 수 있도록 만들었던 소중한 기록이라고 할 수 있다. 글 송명하 (파라노이드 편집장)

" This is a precious record that He six musically released during their heyday, and it is their second album that was meant to ignite the transition to a full-fledged rock band with lead vocals in the 1960s. By recruiting vocalist Choi Heon, who played black music very well at the time, he increased the proportion of soul music, creating a result of adding creativity to the stable ensemble of performance. The original piece, “Light of the Meadow,” in the last chapter of the “Wow Garden” series, which has been a regular song since the time of Hi-Five, was popular and shows a variety of colorful songs.

[Precious Records Announced at Band's Highest Season] - Excerpt


This is the official second album of He Six. In 1971, when the album was released, He Six had a very unstoppable activity, hitting a popular commercial district. First of all, they had won the Grand Prix after winning before the Key Boys in the final of the 1st Sunday Seoul Cup Contest Vocal Group Contest on May 30, 1971, and in the second Playboy Cup Contest Vocal Group Contest on July 13, the following year, 1970 they Received the highest award. The judges chose Ensemble as the decisive factor for He Six. for its Stable sound, based on excellent performance, which was the greatest advantage of Hisix at the time. Here, Six Six released the album's own tasks through his official debut album released in 1970. The task was to reinforce creativity and complete the solo vocal system.


In the album released by Hesix in 1971, the second album and [Go Go Sound '71 He 6 with Go !!] are the other chapters in the album. [I Miss You-Kim Hong-tak's Collection] is the first. In this album, guest singers such as Sun Woo Young, Lim Sung Hoon, and Song Hye Kyeong contain Kim Hong-Tak's arrangement and His Sixs. Although this album also has a high proportion of the drafts, it is noteworthy that it contains four songs written by Kim Hong-tak himself. Unlike Hi-Five's days, when he didn't feel “need to create a creation of his own” the act of creation emerged as an important part of His Six's work. Therefore, it is a record that can give great meaning in that the puzzles of the assignments assigned by the time of the debut album release are matched.


The biggest change between His Six's first and second albums is the change in members. Among the first members, vocalist Choi Heon, who had been able to play black music with Park's fascination with Kim In-jung instead of studying abroad in Japan for jazz studies, who joined. This means that the sound of Hex Six is ​​more weighted with soul music than before. Choi Hun worked as a member of Charming Geis with Lee Nam before joining the He Six, and on the stage of the Eighth Army, in terms of Lee Nam's expression, he became a Scout and joined the He Six. The band's intention to escape the sound of harmony vocal style in the 1960s and become a full-fledged rock band with lead vocals was revealed in detail with the addition of new members.


Their debut album had the phrase `` Cosmos Series '' on the top of the jacket. It is the story that the Cosmos Division exists continuously in their background. Among the songs included in the song 'I've Been Loving You Too Long' of the original song of Otis Redding, which shows the charm of Choi Hun's sol-style song well, Hi Five or His Six has been listening to it through the album. It was also a new starting point. Sly & the Family Stone's cover version 'Dance To The Music' or 'Sing A Simple', which has been transformed into a more rocky sound with a fluttering keyboard playing and fuzz sound guitars instead of the original brass parts. Song 'and the sweet R & B number' I'll Be There 'are also tracks that define the color of this album in black.


In addition, `` Dance To The Music '', which boasts the best sum of members, including Choi Hun's shouting, can indirectly experience the performance of His Six at that time. This live recording starts from Hi Five's Christmas carol house and acts as a link to the experimentation of Go Go Sound '71 He 6!


As we have seen, 1971 is the peak of his popularity as well as his popularity, and the band's situation has remained the clear result of winning various competitions and four unprecedented discography. The album "Cosmetic Wounds / Beautiful Dolls" released after the label "Cosmos" was released the following year. It was. For this reason, [HE6 Vol.2] is a valuable record that made it possible to firmly grasp the rudder of the band between the debut album and the third album.

The first track is a great instrumental of a go-go psych with some flute, great organ, electric guitar, and with a stretched middle passage with drum mostly. The second chosen track is a funky psych track, also with some flute, and lots of percussion. A highly recommended album.


- The whole double album in a way sounds like a large psychedelic jam. -

Aquarius Records description :


"Recorded in, yay, 1971, pressed in a ridiculously limited (promotion only) quantity of 300 copies each, and subsequently all but forgotten, these two records by Korean psychedelic groovesters the HE 6 are some gems indeed! With the exception of the closing side-long seventeen minute cover of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (which faithfully does indeed include the obligatory drum solo as per the original version, along with what sounds like a police siren and also an added *flute* solo!) all the tracks on the two albums Go Go Sound '71 vol. 1 and Go Go Sound '71 vol. 2 included here are instrumental jams -- numbered themes with titles like "Theme 2. 4/4 for Guitar" and "Theme 3. Running Human". And even "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" is mostly instrumental of course.


Listening to the other tracks on this disc it makes sense that they would choose Iron Butterfly's opus as the sole tune to cover. Like that tune, all of their originals are extended jams led by fuzzed-out electric guitar and Hammond organ. In addition, the aforementioned flute gets a workout too. (Yet another victory for the flute, so often mistakenly perceived as diminutive instrument! But the flute can certainly hold its own in this heavy, groovy, acid-rock band.) And it's crucial to mention that HE 6's rhythm section is darn tight! Indeed, this stuff's funky enough that we're sure they were probably just as much influenced by James Brown's band The JB's as they were by the likes of the Vanilla Fudge and Iron Butterfly. If not so obscure, we're sure this would have been plundered by DJs looking for the swank breaks... who knows, maybe hip hop producers in Korea have done so? So, very much recommended to all you folks into these sorta swinging '60s/'70s sounds -- especially if you dig the Cambodian Rocks and Thai Beat comps!


'Tis an expensive import, but the packaging helps justify the price: a gorgeous heavy-duty mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve, complete with a booklet featuring extensive liner notes (in English!) and photos, plus you even get two colorful HE 6 stickers! Nice."


Mutant Sounds :


"...And the Lemmy-goes-to-India sounds of Sam Gopal. And the Juan dela Cruz Band from the Phillipines. And Turkish music galore. And all those incredible Cambodian Rocks comps. Et cetera, et cetera. Yup, we've had a lot of vintage heavy rock and psych reissues from all over the world now, but this is maybe the first time we've gotten our hands on something from Korea (and hopefully not the last -- we'd love to get Sanullim discs too, someday).Recorded in, yay, 1971, pressed in a ridiculously limited (promotion only) quantity of 300 copies each, and subsequently all but forgotten, these two records by Korean psychedelic groovesters the HE 6 are some gems indeed!

Excellent weird LPs to blow your mind and set your psychedelic "love in"(!)) party to fire!"


This album was reissued on a double CD as well and is highly recommended. It is one of the better/best psychedelic albums from Korea !

He 6 played in "mod(ern)" fashion show. called "Psyche mode show" on July 8, 1970.


Psychefolk Radioshow comments :


"Get Ready" - "This track has some theme changes with some solo's after some (very) long repetition of a basic theme. The streched lenght does not make it the best of the long tracks but still pretty much worth hearing. Like always I really like the organ solo. It has a very good drum solo too."

인기 정상을 달리는 여러분의 He 6 /

"He 6 running on the top of its popularity"

* 01 사랑의 상처 / Wound of love

* 02 태양이 질 때 (Whiter Shade of Pale)

03 모르겠오이다 / I don't know

* 04 당신은 몰라 / you don't know

* 05 초원의 빛 / Light of the meadow

* 06 아름다운 인형 / Beautiful Doll (Get Ready)

07 사랑의 약속 / The Promise of Love (Color My World)

The first 5 songs are nice 60s (psych-flavoured) pop-rock songs with harmony vocals and use of organ. Included amongst them is a cover of Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale”. An approach sounding fine already. More unusual is a near 15 minute improvisation based upon The Temptations “Get Ready”, with great smooth and at some stage strangely montone-hypnotic psych organ, wild fuzz guitar solos and some fine drumming, with a rather expanded drum solo, before ending this with an outro of Chicago’s “Color My World” a song led by piano, a smooth and simple, relaxed ending.


Description of LP reissue by Tiliqua :


"Instantly sold out 2003 release, limited numbered edition to 1000 copies, this one being 695/1000. 1972 Korean psych fuzz and Seoul A Go-Go Bomb. The centerpiece of this disc is the immensely spun out version of Rare Earth’s “Get Ready”, a heavy keyboard deranged and fuzz-a-delic infested brain ripper of a version. 16 minutes that ventures in a slowed down vocal styled version that gets underscored by an immensely doom-heavy pedal infested organ lines and stoned-as-hell guitar riffage. Just dead cool! This disc comes in a deluxe laminated hard cover jacket complete with insert and poster. Sold out instantly upon its release, so here is a top notch copy for a change, so Get Ready…perfect for your doped out New Year’s eve parties filled with cheap strippers, crystalline nose powder and silicon enhanced Go-Go pole dancers. Yeah!!!!"

[해설지 발췌] …1970년 밴드에게 유리하게 돌아가던 사회 분위기는 1971년 말이 되며 다시 싸늘해졌다. 동아일보 1971년 11월 5일자 <보컬 그룹사운드 강요된 썰물, 퇴폐풍조 단속에 도심 살롱 터전 잃어>라는 타이틀의 기사에서는 “특히 지난달부터 시작된 퇴폐풍조의 강력한 단속은 도심지 살롱의 그룹사운드에 결정적 타격이 됐다. 따라서 중심가 살롱에서 공연하던 그룹들은 무대를 잃고 있으며 각 방송국에서의 활동도 브레이크가 걸려 가요계는 다시 복고무드에 젖고 있다.”는 내용이 실렸다. 히식스의 정규 세 번째 음반이 발표된 건 이 기사가 나가고 넉달 정도 지난 1972년 3월 26일이다. 음반의 부제는 ‘인기 정상을 달리는 여러분의 히식스’. 사실, 자신의 음반 타이틀에 이렇게 당당한 부제를 붙일 수 있을 만한 밴드가 얼마나 될까? 자칫 웃음거리로 퇴색할 수 있는 타이틀이 결코 과장되지 않은 밴드가 바로 당시의 히식스였다. 이전 음반의 재킷과 달리 검은 바탕에 굳은 얼굴 표정은 싸늘한 분위기를 정면 돌파하려는 밴드의 강한 의지를 그대로 반영하고 있다. 앞선 기사 내용에서 언급된 살롱에 대한 이야기 때문인지, 전작까지 음반의 꼭대기에 자리 잡았던 ‘Cosmos Series’라는 문구는 사라졌으며, 음반사 역시 그랜드에서 오아시스로 바뀌었다는 점 외에 음반의 내용도 이전과 많이 달라졌다. 앞서 문제작이라고 소개했던 이 그 이전과 이 음반의 음악성을 확연하게 바꿔 놓았거나, ‘코스모스 사단’에서 완전하게 자유로워져 밴드 스스로 지휘봉을 잡은 때문일 수도 있다. 어쨌거나 이러한 변화가 긍정적으로 작용했음은 음반을 들어보면 확실히 알 수 있다. 특히 B면에 수록된 번안곡 ‘아름다운 인형(Get Ready)’에서 펼쳐지는 15분여의 장쾌한 호연과 시카고(Chicago)의 곡 ‘사랑의 약속(Color My World)’은 을 경계선으로 변모한 히식스의 모습을 그대로 반영하는 필청 트랙들이다. 잼 형식의 스테이지 라이브를 음반으로 옮긴 형식이 아니라, 애초에 확실한 구성을 밑그림으로 그려뒀다는 점 역시 주목할 부분이다.

[Excerpt from Commentary] … "The atmosphere that favored the band in 1970 became cool again by the end of 1971. Dong-A Ilbo's article titled <Voice Group Sound Forced Low Elevation, Loss of Urban Salons to Decrease Decayed Winds> on November 5, 1971, said, “In particular, the strong crackdown on the decadent winds that began last month has been a decisive blow to the group sounds of downtown salons. . Therefore, the groups performing in the salons of the center are losing their stages, and the activities in each broadcasting station are broken down, so the music industry is getting a blow again. ” Their sixth album was released on March 26, 1972, four months after the article was released. The subtitle of the album is 'He6 running on top of popularity'. Indeed, how many bands can add this subtitle to their record titles? He6 was the band whose title was never exaggerated.


Unlike the jackets of the previous albums, the firm face on the black background reflects the band's strong will to break through the chilly atmosphere. Perhaps because of the story of the salon mentioned in the previous article, the phrase 'Cosmos Series', which had been at the top of the record until the previous work, disappeared, and the record was also changed from the previous one except that the label changed from grand to an oasis. . It may be because the music of this album and the music that I introduced as a problem work have been remarkably changed, or because the band is completely free from the Cosmos Division. In any case, it is clear from the record that these changes have worked positively. In particular, 15 minutes of exhilarating performances from the `` Get Ready '' song on the B side and Chicago's song `` Color My World '' show the shape of Hiss. It's a must-see track. It's also worth noting that the jam-type stage live wasn't transferred to the album, but was originally sketched out with a clear composition."
