* CD5-3 다시는 돌아오지 않으리 / I’ll never come back (1967)

CD5-16 웃는 얼굴 다정해도 / even sweet smiling face (1967)

This first song with passionate voice has I assume starts with the same effect as Jacque Brel's "Ne Me Quitte Pas" should have, with the same theme, but it builds up more passion and shows with this a strong emotional performance. A song and performance to remember.

The second track with brass orchestra sings with equal passion a crime movie-like song.

Tracks with * I consider essential listens, also very suitable for western radioshow airplay.

CD1 I assume these are all recordings from a later date, but there has been given attention to the production to make this work, with varied succes, because with a matured and already somewhat aged voice in combination with the already further more commercialised times this combination tend to lean itself to become even more easier a drift into more mainstream territory, so it is not always leading to the best options or results I would prefer them to hear, musically speaking. In one song in particular however she still amazes a rather big range of expressions: on 여러분 / Everyone, this voice shows a range from slow and more sad variations to full power soulfulness. When turning towards a loud over the top voice this does not always convinces at some other songs, almost seeming to break the mike into bits with her voice, while on the mentioned track it fits to its variations. It is also nice to notice, for foreigners like me, that one part of this song is in English. From a slower track like "Flag" or "No need to say" I like its modest expression and approach perhaps even more. While some other slow tracks, like on "Whom I love" it show such vibrations in the voice that might not be requested for the songs I personally prefer not to have them exactly there; the worked out production does not entirely make up for it.

CD2 "What should I do" is drifted by emotion, and is arranged carefully (clarinet, guitar, strings, bass, drums,...). Also "How are you" with brass and string orchestra has power. "Empty Sea" is a nice ballad, more calmly sung (which suits Yun Bok-Hee's voice well). Most tracks on the second CD for me and to my taste the effect of voice and music, creates somewhat unhappy results.


As a compilation, for completists while some tracks still are definitely worth taking out.​
