Kim Choo Ja – Why Doesn’t He Come?/Is It Real?

Kim Choo Ja enjoyed a very successful career in Korean music after bursting onto the scene in the late 1960s, musically she was associated with Shin Jung Hyun on her earlier LPs but this LP is slightly after that. Although much of this album has a more gentle & orchestrated feel there is enough lo-fi/garagey production values to keep things enjoyable. The drum sound especially is extremely ghetto & sounds like the drummer was recorded through a tunnel in an adjacent building. For me there are three really strong tracks on this LP, so check them out.

  • My dad was stationed in Korea in the late 1960’s, and that was one of the things he brought home. My sister played and I the heck out of that album. If I remember correctly, the vinyl was blue. It was the coolest thing we’d ever seen. We played it so much, we could sing along with her. Had no clue what the lyrics meant. Those were the days!

    Thanks for posting this.
