If you know of some interesting vintage Thai music, share it here. I'll get things started.
The beloved Poompuang Duangjan...
^ Why so sad?
Actually, watching this particular video you posted on the other thread got me browsing for older Thai music, and thus the idea for this thread.
According to some forum members, vintage Thai music is better than Verdi.
This one is my favourite...
There's a great club night in Bangkok called Paradise Bangkok/Isaan Dancehall that plays this kind of stuff as well as vintage reggae and Afrobeat. Well worth checking out.

You have given out too much Reputation in the last 24 hours, try again later.
I'd like to see Jeff Beck or someone do an arraignment with some of these folks.
From the description: "Thai singer Suthep Wongkamhaeng sings. Near as I can tell, this fellow is the Thai equivalent of America's Frank Sinatra."

"Come taste my papaya salad, very delicious. From sunset till late at night at the gas station, I sell papaya salad.
The handsome taxi driver and the tricycle boy are my best customers.
But tonight I haven't seen them. Are they bored with my papaya salad?
The Papaya salad merchant from Isaan has been worrying about it since sunset.
The handsome taxi driver is not coming, nor the Tricycle boy. I feel so neglected.
Maybe my papaya salad is not as delicious as another merchant in Suthisan.
So that's why the handsome taxi is bored with me and might have a crush on the northern girl who sells Mieng Khum.
The tricycle boy also is not coming. He used to flirt with me but now he's disappeared.
I wait at the gas station from dusk till dawn. I look at the road but never see you dear.
You used to take me home but why did you leave me alone?
The handsome taxi driver is not coming, nor the Tricycle boy. It hurts me so deeply"
Killer soul instrumental... another big tune at Paradise Bangkok/Isaan Dancehall
^ Nice one, man!
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
If you ever wondered what Isaan music would sound like if it borrowed riffs from Black Sabbath then...
