San Ul Lim-Volume 1:Ah! Already[77 Korean Psychedelic Rock]

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Do leave comments

first album by san ul lim
contains the track:Perhaps, It Was a Late Summer
wich was on various compilations including the asian volume of
the love peace and poetry compilation serie's
and some more compilations
i cant remember.

it would be awesome if they dedicated a volume to korea
there would be enough material to fill a volume
not to mention all Shin Jung Hyun groups:the donkeys,the men,the questions
and the golden grapes to name a few



all tracks are tagged in english.

some info:
After their first album release, many Korean young peoples were surprised by their music!!
Their music was very unique and fresh and it distinguished them from previous Korean pop music.
Anyway their first album became a million seller in the Korean 1970s pop scene over the time. The record sold immediately over five hundreds of thousands copies! But band members were in confusion. They didn’t know their music would be that good. So they said that “After our first album release, we are just left with our musical instruments and lost our music.”



"San Ul Lim (translated as 'That Mountain Echo', alternate spellings include 'Sanulim', 'Sanullim' and 'San Ul Rim') was formed by three brothers born of privilege in Seoul, South Korea. With confidence gained from endless practising and competing in a university student song contest, they approached record label SRB (because it was near their house!) and recorded their first album in just one day. Upon its release in 1977, the LP sold over a half-million copies and paved the way for many further volumes. The songs are full of fuzz guitar, tinny keyboards and simple production, reminding one of the American garage and pop-psychedelic groups from the sixties, but with an Asian flavor. For this new reissue World Psychedelia have included two pages of English liner notes, explaining the significance of the final track, a cover of the traditional Korean folk song 'Arirang'."
