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.
