Kim Jung Mi - Kim Jung Mi (1974)



Kim Jung Mi - Kim Jung Mi (1974)

Groovy folk funk from mid 70s Korea -- mad, pulpy tunes from Kim Jung Mi -- possibly her best work ever! This wonderful self-titled set is a pretty deep left turn from her other material that we've been lucky enough to get our hands on -- this one really goes deeper into the trippier elements that pepper her work -- with deep, thumping bass lines, groovy organ washes and some strings! Groovy, groovy work and more than lives up to the World Psychedelia tag! 11 tracks in all. (Apologies for our lack of song titles -- all notes are Korean!) (dustygroove)

THIS IS QUITE MIND-BLOWING AND THE COVER OF "MOVE OVER" IS PRICELESS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Hi Miklos! In Korea the rival to Kim Jung Mi was Kim Choo Ja. Check her out at www.kimchooja.com ChooJa was always known as the queen and JungMi was just an up and coming copy cat. As of 2008 JungMi is MIA but ChooJa is living happy with her husband and daughter. I still keep in touch with her. One fiery lady!
