 ★★★★☆
 GaYo, Psychedelic

This album is the first release with his trio band YeopJeonDeul. The simple and psychedelic play is unique in Korea. I think SanUlRim and ShinJungHyeon represent the Korean Psychedelic Era[mid 60s - 70s].
He influenced by American Blues, Psychedelic and Korean Traditional Music. His guitar sound hears like GaYaGeum[traditional string instrument]. His melody and rhythm is far from US/UK. So we call him the godfather.
When ShinJungHyeon acts in Korean rock scene, the level of Korean popular music is not so poor. But military goverment of ParkJeongHui pressed the musicians include ShinJungHyeon, KimMinGi and HanDaeSu, so just poor musics remained on the popular music scene.
You can see what is Korean Psychedelic on this album.

 Rock, Hard Rock, Gayo, Ballade

Who oppose to told ShinJungHyeon as the father of Korean Rock?
The 1st tribute album to Korean Musician was made under this atmosphere. A few good underground musicians participated. And the result is really good. A critic told, 'a tribute more than real songs' but I don't think so...^^; Anyway this 2CD album contains rock oriented side(Disk 1) and the other songs(Disk 2).

GangSanE sung [BaRam; Wind] , it shows GangSanE becomes one of the real rocker. He always does persevering attitude. SiNaWi's leader is ShinDaeChul, the son of ShinJoongHyun. Their version of [GgotIp; Petal] is also powerful.
He wrote many lyrical songs like [BomBi; Rain of Spring] which sung by backbone female singer LeeEunMi. HanYeongAe, JanisJoplin of Korea, sung [Bom; Spring] . She doesn't sing in her style.
At the end of Disk 2, all the singers sung the admiration song [AReumDaOon GangSan; Beautiful Country].
This album show the underground power of Korean rockers. It contains also instrumental compositions. --DisTort, 1999

5CD Box Set.

  1. ShinJungHyeon & YeopJeons : Vol 1+2(1974+1974, 2LP on 1CD)
  2. ShinJungHyeon & Music Power : AReumDaUn GangSan(1980)
  3. ShinJungHyeon & Music Power : NaeGaSson WiSeong(1982)
  4. Compilation : The ShinJungHyeon Songbook
  5. ShinJungHyeon & YeopJeons : Instrumental Best(1975)

It's very nice box for the ShinJungHyeon beginners. His late works are compiled in cheap price.
Most of all the 4th disk is nice for old ShinJungHyeon fans. JangHyeon, InSunI ParkInSu KimJeongMi sung ShinJungHyeon's tracks. InSunI shows very powerful soul voice. We must redig InSunI!
But this compilation is not so good plan. ShinJungHyeon's songs are related with very complex copyright problems. So no music company couldn't dig his historical plays. And many mastertapes are already gone with the wind...=.= This compilation covers just a part of his huge career. The most poorest thing is the company never gave ShinJungHyeon copyright fee till now, for 30 years. Perhaps this title will be deleted on the catalog.
Sorry to say this bad condition of Korean Music Industry.
