Rare Cambodian Tracks | BP1 | Reupped!


Reupped once again by reader request here.

Most of my files were reset to "private" mode by my file hoster, ADrive. This means most of the (especially older) albums are currently unavailable. Let me know if there's anything particular you'd really like reupped and I'll see what I can do. 

I'll try and get the other Cambodian stuff back up soon. 

Meanwhile, don't miss this on Wednesday night.




[Originally posted May 2013.] At least nine compilations of Cambodian rock have been released for western consumption over the last decade, making this incredibly rich pop from the 60s and 70s some of the most talked-about and listened-to around the world. But for every song now readily available on CD, there are 10-20 more that most people outside of Cambodia haven’t yet heard.

Over the last year I’ve scoured the furthest reaches of the Internet, pulling together a collection of nearly 1,000 songs, ranging from pretty darn okay to unimpeachably great. The selection I’ve put together here is an attempt to showcase the greatest of what has yet to see major distribution. Every song on this mix-CD is a personal favorite and, to the best of my knowledge, not otherwise available on any of the Cambodia Rocks, Cambodian Psych-Out, Groove Club, Dengue Fever or Sublime Frequencies compilations.

If I had a CD series of my own, this would be the first thing I’d release. Alas, I don’t. And, because I don’t, it looks like you’ve just saved yourself $16.95.

I downloaded the reup, but it's not Cambodian. It's called "Lo Mejor De Boddega."

Thank you so much for letting me know, Dolmance.

I've fixed the error; the right file should be there now.

That said, that Boddega album is pretty sweet as well. :)

Gary, The only additional Cambodian post that has been inactive and inaccessible was the CSP disc 11. I would be immensely grateful if you would be able to re-post it.

Gary said...

I'll take a look, Mikey -- and will try to repost by end of weekend

Gary (not Dolmance, sorry)

I'd LOVE to get a d/l link for Yeung Nam Knea Ram Leng....

Michael, there's a whole album of things, including the Touch Saly song you want, by clicking on the word "here" in the first sentence of the post.

Let me know if you have any problems DLing it!
