The best of Khwanta Fasawang, the heart and soulful Sister No.
1 of 1980s Lam Phaen, queen of the cassette era! She was
chosen, from over a thousand demo tapes, by legendary producer
and songwriter Doi Inthanon, who wanted to create a new form of
streetwise dance music. The Lam Phaen genre was the result, and
Khwanta Fasawang was the singer he chose to be its
representative. Combining earlier musical trajectories with
electronic elements and lyrics dealing with drinking and love,
money and motorcycles, Khwanta led the cassette-format Lam
Phaen boom of the early '80s, gaining great popularity across the entire country. The change in lyrical concerns and use of
electronics shows parallels with Jamaican Dancehall, and this
music can be heard as one of the roots of Lam Sin, the Thai
Bass Music which began in the '80s and '90s. However, these
recordings are not mere musicology. This is living music, and
very fine music at that..

Also available: THE BEST OF LAM PHAEN SISTER NO. 1 (LP).
