Format: Audio CD
I purchased this CD a few weeks back on Amazon and I play it constantly, it's absolutely superb.
I first became aware of South Korean Rock from the 70's through the essential Love Peace & Poetry volume of Asian Psychedelic Music. There is a track without a title on that album by one Shin Jung Hyun And The Men which transpires to be the title track of this Shin Joong Hyun CD. I was really impressed by the majesty and beauty of this song (as well as the other South Korean track on the Love Peace & Poetry volume by a band named San Ul Lim).

This is a really well put-together CD. Thorough and thoughtfully and intelligently written liner notes and lots of great pictures too. Clearly the work of people who have great respect for the artists and their music. Shin Joong Hyun worked with some great artists in South Korea and this CD is packed to the brim with some great music.

I had managed to track down some more material by Shin Joong Hyun and Kim Jung Mi before this CD came out so a little duplication was hardly a problem when I purchased this collection! The Kim Jung Mi track included here is absolutely beautiful by the way.

I love to hear rock from areas that are not well documented in the west. Psychedelic rock was not just confined to London and San Francisco! A few South Korean tracks have appeared on a few western released compiltaions but I believe this is the first full CD release of South Korean rock and it's a terrific introduction to it's Godfather of Rock Shin Joong Hyun too.

I cannot recommend this highly enough, as well as all the Love Peace & Poetry albums which have introduced me to many artists from around the world, often places that the west seems to have largely ignored.

I am hoping to go to South Korea soon to see what other albums I can find there!

I am one of the few who have known about Shin Joong Hyun and related artists for some time, but must admit I was surprised when I found out about this recent Western Release of his music.

Although in my opinion it is not a collection of his very best works, I guess this is also due to the tracks chosen having the best sound quality, and many of my favourite other tracks having poor sound quality, but this is a good introduction to the Psychedelic Sounds of South Korea.

However, there is a definite improvement in sound quality on the tracks on this CD compared to other releases. Track 5 - I Don't Like is my favourite on here, although I have always known this song as Shi-Ruh (but actual name appears to be '') from the album Shin Joong Hyun & the Donkeys - feat. Lee Jung Hwa. Interestingly Kim Choo Ja (who also worked with Shin but is not featured on this CD) recorded a modern version of this song which can be found on Kim Choo Ja Best 20 as Track 15 (if you can find a copy!), although I must say I prefer this original version.

There is especially noticeable sound improvement in the long track 14 - Beautiful Rivers And Mountains on the CD, in which I can definitely hear things in the jam towards the end of the song that I have not heard before. If you enjoy this last track, it is worth finding a copy of "Shin Joong Hyun & the Donkeys - feat. Lee Jung Hwa" CD as you will also enjoy the 16 minute long Track 6 which features an amazing Jam.

The package and book is also nice being in English, as I cannot read the Korean notes on the many other CDs I have collected.

If you enjoy this and can find it, I would recommend purchasing Shin Joong Hyun - Anthology Part 1, which is a 5 CD compilation in a very nice box set, containing many favourites of mine.

A good introduction to South Korean Psychedelic Music! 27 Oct 2011

If you enjoy this and can find it, I would recommend purchasing Shin Joong Hyun - Anthology Part 1, which is a 5 CD compilation in a very nice box set, containing many favourites of mine. It is also worth getting any CDs by Kim Jung Mi. When searching for Shin Joong Hyun CDs it is also worth noting that there are some variations on the spelling of Shin's name as it is sometimes spelt Shin Jung Hyun and Shin Jung Hyeon.

I am not sure if I am asking too much, but it would be good if "Light In The Attic" could release some more of Shin's work in the future or Kim Jung Mi albums with improved sound quality, as well as a CD release for "From Where To Where", which for some unknown reason has only been released as a digital download.

Also if anyone has a copy of Shin Joong Hyun performing a cover version of the Jefferson Airplane/The Great Society song "Somebody to Love" (AKA "Someone To Love"), I would love to hear it.

guitar virtuoso 7 Oct 2011
By Kenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although this album doesn't include 'Mee-in'(beautiful woman) and 'Bitsok-eui yeo-in' (woman in the rain) two of my favorites, I love the fact that they selected 'beautiful rivers & montain' in its original 1972 version. Many of his fans seem to like its 1980 version by Shin Joon Hyun and the Music power, I cannot say any one is better than the other. The two versions complete the song in a very different mood and a playing style. 1972 version is more psychedelic and progressive, 1980 version is more acoustic and straighforward. One Korean pop singer in 80's ruined this song by singing it like a contestant from American idol, and the sad part is, because of her, most Korean people know this song as hers, and don't know how great the original version is.

There have been some good rock & metal bands in Korea, but for the classic rock, Shin is all South Korea has. Sometimes, a genius appears where and when you would never expect.

Korean master musician 10 Dec 2011
By pohangsaram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Whoever truly understands Shin Joong Hyun's music will agree that he is a musical genius. It is surprising that a talent of such a magnitude immerged from a society that had been devastated by a major war and had long been choked by military dictatorship. Although he was influenced by western popular music, he created his own unique version of rock that many name (quite legitimately, for sure) "Korean rock." He was so ahead of his time that many of his great songs began to be appreciated only after a generation. Shin's musical talent bloosomed in the 1970s, and the best product of his immense talent was the album "Now" (1973) where he worked with Kim Jung Me, a legendary female vocalist. The album included such masterful songs like "Bom (Spring)" and "Baram (Wind)." If you by any chance come across this album, just grab it; the market price of an original LP will be higher than 2,000 dollars. It is disappointing that this collection does not have many of Shin's greatest songs in "Now" and other albums in the 1970s. However, nobody can expect a single CD to reflect all his greatness, and this is indeed a fine collection. I am very glad that Shin's music is finally introduced to the western audience. Although this album is only an introduction, I hope that it will lead people to the amazing world of a Korean master musician.

South Korean superstar bridges the far east to the far out. 30 Sep 2011
By Scott McWade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Singer, guitar virtuoso, song writer, producer; Shin Joong Hyun was not only a juggernaut on the South Korean popular music scene, he practically was the scene. From Elvis to the UK beat groups to Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane, his influences helped him create some very psychedelic sounding nuggets. I get the feeling this should probably have been a box set, but I'm sure if this set sells anything, such ideas would not be so crazy. His story, in the notes, is as epic as his influence. Jump in, the waters fine.
