Editorial Reviews

Groovy 60's Sounds from the Land of Smile!. If you dug volume 1 of Thai Beat A Go-Go, you'll go crazy over the new release in the Thai Beat A Go-Go series! Incredible and ultra rare recordings from Thailand in the 1960s. The amazing Thai Beat A Go-Go Vol. 2, concentrates on exotic female pop, go-go funk and rock vocal numbers, beat, psych and some very weird tracks, extreme sensuality and emotions, surreal and groovy, all with a totally otherworldly Thai flavor. Experience the blossoming Bangkok night club scene with the exotic bar and lounge go-go bands! There is a lot of work and effort behind these comps and they have taken a long time to compile. Records with Thai 60s-70s rock/pop a-go-go bands are incredible hard, if not impossible, to find as there is no Thai tradition of saving native artifacts from the 1960s. Subliminal. 2004.

Format:Audio CD
In an era when rock has completely broken all ties with its roots, and become boring and grindingly consistent, its good to go back and realize that there are still a lot of different ways to approach this pop thing. Sometimes, the people who know the least about authenticity do the best job. Take Pairote's cover of "Your Cheatin Heart," as well as the covers of "All Shook Up" and "Funky Broadway."

Make no mistake about it, this isn't some pansy watered down crap to sell at a health food store thats been doctored up with house beats and buddhas on the cover - this is the real deal. Raw and jangly, free of all the conventional approaches to learning and playing pop and rock and music.

It is my hope that records like these can help make a revelation for listeners- that the "third world" isn't so far away, and that when other cultures are influenced by Western pop, its only influence, not just blind and parrotting. A thousand year old culture doesn't just dissappear in the event that one Elvis record is broadcast.

Reccomended listening for those who enjoy this record:

The entire Ethiopiques series

Cambodian Rocks

Wizzzz! Psychadelia Francais

Best of Bollywood

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!! 60's Thai garage rock! February 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is awesome! 55 minutes of garage rock bliss. If you think you might like it, you will! It is a bit of a novelty cd, but it is also thoroughly enjoyable (and danceable). Includes amazing original songs and Thai language covers of Elvis, Hank Williams, and Serge Gainsbourg. Any song on this album would fit perfectly on a Tarantino or John Waters soundtrack. You can check out song samples on aquariusrecords.net

5.0 out of 5 stars Super great February 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The strangeness of this CD is totally captivating -- a mix of Thai stylings and Western pop music of the mid-20th-century. I heard it for the first time at a friend's place and had to have it right away. The whole album meets expectations. It's not only a novelty -- it's also rhythmic and fun and rockin' and sweet. Everyone I've played this CD for has adored it and wanted a copy. The cover art is also quite...hmmm, yeah, I can't really think of a word for it. Pretty damn great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, quirky, and consistently enjoyable. November 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is absolutely fantastic. Every song is cute and quirky and makes me smile. It seems to capture the time and place that the songs are from and take me right there. Some of the songs are covers of American oldies with some weird twists. If you're on the fence about whether to buy this album... DO IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars not what i expected(i tried to put 3stars) January 13, 2009
By L
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i had high hopes for this collection, it sounds like what it is, bad versions of pop songs sung in thia, i do enjoy world music, and have disc from all around the world, from 1890s to now, most of this disc is to light, sounds like radio music. if the disc cost 10$ a piece i would order the whole thing, but 17.98 is just to much for each
i doubt ill buy anymore, unless used versions fall in range. now i save for the cambodian rock series, which i do hope is better than this
