Kim Jung Mi – The Wind


Recorded in 1973, this LP is the middle release in a trio of collaborative LPs between singer Kim Jung Mi and guitarist/bandleader/songwriter Shin Jung Hyun. Here we have Kim Jung Mi’s cool female vocals over a solid bunch of pop/psych songs. This LP and the one directly preceding it (“Now”) are both highly rated LPs and listening to “The Wind” you can hear why as the production and overall vibe is extremely accessable and appealing. The story goes, that by the late 70s Kim Jung Mi was fed up of the censorship rampant in Korean pop music and essentially quit, I don’t know how accurate this is but after digging through some background on both Kim Jung Mi and Shin Jung Hyun, one definitely gets the idea that things were not easy in those turbulent times. This LP is a fantastic listen throughout and Shin Jung Hyun’s guitar playing adds a distinctive and interesting voice to its overall sound.
