""Amazing Thailand!" -- The Thai national tourism slogan was undoubtedly inspired in part by the mind-bendingly cool 1960's recordings by the band Son Of P.M., one of the leading lights of the "Shadow Music" scene. Inspired by an influx of Western rock and pop music (including British guitar band The Shadows), The Son Of P.M. developed their own style of "Modernized Thai Music", combining traditional Thai instruments with Western keyboards, drums and electric guitars. The result was a seductive, intoxicating blend of Thai melodies merging with elements of rock, surf, go-go, Latin and blues. Amazing indeed. The music on this anthology is an excellent example of this spirit of openness and adventure, a rocking, rollicking parade of undeniably Thai music, relentlessly propulsive and energetic, informed by musical develpoments from around the globe. A true hybrid which creates energy instead of merely conserving. Prepare to be amazed!" (label info)
