A similar thing happened a few weeks ago with vintage Korean music. There I was resting on my laurels feeling all chuffed (ok, smug!) with my recently acquired Kim Jung Mi cd- my first foray into the Korean music of the past - when a friend sent me this majestic slice of shimmy pop by Lee Jung Hwa and I was left counting my pennies to see if I could afford it, too*:
It's like Arthur Russell in his sublime"First Thought, Best Thought" period hooked up with Dionne Warwick to make elegant, swaying supper club soul music live in The Kitchen. Unbelievably good!
* - It appears on this Light In The Attic cd.
