CD3-12 저녁 한때 목장 풍경 / Some evening in a pastured landscape (1964)

Tracks with * I consider essential listens or classics from a western point of view of listening, as tracks to check out for sure because for some reason they seem to stand out as unique moments, which makes them also very suitable for western radio show airplay. Tracks that are only underlined can be considered fine tracks you might better check out as well, but I am not sure how essential they are.

These songs shows fine early 60s filmic crooner music in follow up tradition of voices like Elvis Presley and such, sung with a warm voice, with fine arrangements and accompanying backing vocalists.

CD5-12 눈물을 감추고 / To hide the tears (1966)

This a trot song with fine voce and accompaniment.

박춘석 작곡집: 흑산도 아가씨/가슴 아프게 /

Master Builder series : composer Park Chun Seok

CD1-10 지뢰는 갔다 / A land mine went off

I assume that this crooner with subtle kind of marching drum accompaniment will be related with ideas of a war song.
