75. V.A./ SAIGON ROCK & SOUL: "Vietnamiese Classic Tracks 1968 ~ 1974" (Sublime Frequencies - SFG060LP) (2 LP Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint). Sublime Frequencies' long-awaited documentation of late '60s/early '70s Vietnamese Rock, Pop & Soul yields a treasure trove for fans of retro Acid-Rock, Psychedelia and saccharine ballads. Influenced by French chanson, the Western music collections of GIs, and coming from a time before "tacky" electronic production catered to the South East Asian taste for newness, these seventeen fiery and astonishing songs were recorded in makeshift studios and even US army facilities while the Vietnam war raged. They were issued on 45rpm vinyl or reel and cassette tape, but due to the region's aforementioned predilection for freshness, coupled with the purge of western culture post VC success, many are lucky to still exist in any form, and it's thanks to the tireless efforts of the label and collectors such as San Francisco's Rick Foust that they're afforded this new lease of life. Among them you'll discover blazing, breakbeat heavy Acid Rock from the popular (and still surviving) group, CBC Band, besides groovy pop from Carol Kim; the heartbreaking ballad of 'Sao Biên' by Lê Thu; Thai Thanh's amazing swingbeat play 'Bù'ng Sáng'; the atmospheric romance of Giao Linh's 'Chuyên Tinh Sao Ly'; Phuong Dung's echanting love song 'Dô Ai'. There's enough here to engorge even the most exotic-minded follower of retro fashions, and an intense taste of the unknown for any adventurous ears. Price: 60 Euro
