Getting to know you…Shin Joong Hyun

We’re just about two weeks away from the CD release of Beautiful Rivers And Mountains: The Psychedelic Rock Sound Of South Korea’s Shin Joong Hyun 1958-74 (LP available now!). So to help you get to know Mr. Shin, here are some of our favorite Youtube videos we found during our research over several years. Enjoy!

This videos is from the film Mi-in and features the song “I’ve Got Nothing To Say” performed by Shin Joong Hyun & Yupjuns. This is on our Beautiful Rivers And Mountains anthology.

This slow jam features Park In Soo singing Mr. Shin’s “Spring Rain”, also included on our anthology. Looks to be early 80′s but is SO good! He just kills it, though the song cuts off before the colossal ending.

For the most part, sunsets in black and white are not the most breathtaking, however in the case of this film featuring Kim Choo Ja, her interpretation of Mr. Shin’s classic “Sunset” is down right technicolor. On Beautiful Rivers And Mountains we have the Jang Hyun version of the song but hey, a good song can stand up to a few versions.
