✨✧ CaravanMan & Buffalo ... CD
Strawberry Rain, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Important work from the youth uprising years in mid 70s Thailand – a time when the group Caravan were central to some of the bigger protest themes against the nation's restrictive government! According to the notes, the power of this music led to group members' later exile – but to our western ears, which can't understand the lyrics, the album's got a totally different appeal – these beautifully-spun tunes that have slightly folksy undercurrents, but lots of dark shadows around the corners – almost like some psych group got too tripped-out, and turned to acoustic instrumentation to regain their cool. Most guitars are acoustic, and there's also some slide guitar too – alongside violin, harmonica, and local instruments phin and wut. Vocals are often a lot more melancholy than you'd expect for a protest record – but that also adds to the charm of the set a lot! CD
