Kim Jung Mi —
Now ... LP Lion, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A folk funk masterpiece from Korea – sung with breathy brilliance by female singer Kim Jung Mi, and featuring some great fuzzy backgrounds from guitarist ShinJungHyun! Although not in English, the record has a very similar feel to some of the hippest British female work of the same period – a style that takes older folk styles and gives them a trippier, more psychedelic twist – largely through the use of echoey production that makes the voice sound all flanged-out next to the guitar, but also through some spacious arrangements that give most of the record a nicely floating sort of feel! Titles are all in Korean, as are the lyrics – but the record's got an undeniably universal appeal. This excellent vinyl reissue from Lion includes English translations of the titles! They include "Wind", "Spring","Unknowingly", "Your Dream", Blow Spring Breeze" and more. 10 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
