About this item

First anthology of Shin Joong Hyun’s music outside of Korea

Includes an in-depth interview and track-by-track notes by Mr. Shin plus comprehensive liner notes by Kevin “Sipreano” Howes

Shin Joong Hyun’s tale is personal, spiritual, and deep, not only reflecting the full spectrum of human emotions but also reverberating with echoes of sound, some beautiful and life-giving, others restless and ungovernable. These career-spanning anthologies gather Shin’s work as a guitarist, songwriter, producer and arranger of mind-altering experimental pop, acid-folk, and extended psych-funk jams. A musical trip existing somewhere between Motown, Hendrix, and the Velvet Underground.

**** (4 Stars) “An incredible collection” - Record Collector

**** (4 Stars) “...as important to Korean rock in 1970-75 as Phil Spector had been to America's pop scene a decade earlier, and every bit as busy.” – MOJO

**** (4 Stars) ”The ten-plus-minute title track that closes the set is a labyrinthine folk-psych, acid-drenched masterpiece... It's an epic worthy of Morricone's spaghetti Western scores -- had Morricone been born a guitarist. An excellent introduction to his work.” – AllMusic
