QDK Media V.A. : Asian Takeaways (HK/SKO/MAL/SING,60’s-‘70s)***°'
This compilation was done in cooperation with a Korean distributor, with entertainment crossover tracks from Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and one track from Japan. The first couple of tracks are fantastic humorous pleasant crossover tracks. “Guitar boogie” for instance is a favourite (from Yoon-Il-Loh, from Korea) with the specific (wrong) pronunciation and interpretation of “boogie woogie” which makers it perfect Asian amusement. I also like very much the Walt Disney/loony comic-like tunes from Che-Hong Beck “Blowing the whistle” (Korea). In a comparable child-song way is the Japanese traditional “Shojiji”. Fine voice Chang Siao Ying (Singapore) has a band which plays entertaining with just a few true psychedelic fuzz parts. Many songs have very similarly coloured female voices, which makes it more visible of how general elements in Asian entertainment music were taken for giving so called best effect. Not all tracks are as perfect as the CD started but there are various essential fun tracks.
