Lily Chao 'Chinese Folk Songs' LP
On vinyl, this is a reissue of Lily Chao's 'Chinese Folk Songs', originally released in 1968. This edition also includes four previously unheard tunes and exclusive liner notes containing Lily Chao's biography and lyric translations. The album is a mixture of the Mandarin folk style and western rock, inspired by The Shadows, leading to surf guitar and garage sounds recorded with pinpoint precision and enhanced by saxophone and organ touches. At the same time Lily Chao's intoxicating vibratos bring a pinch of soul to the music. An outstanding achievement of timeless pop music from the 1960s!
