NOTE FROM WEB PAGE AUTHOR

August 2018: Please note that I will take a bit of a break from updating this site for a while – at least until my next break period at the end of this year. 

The reason is mostly to do with time constraints this year, but also that this site mostly deals with international vinyl pressings of Korean artists/music, and I have already found most of the discs that are out there. It’s getting harder to find new items in this area.

In future I may try to provide information on the new vinyl which is being pressed in Korea at the moment. Will think it through at the end of the year, when I start to update the site again.

Meanwhile, three non-Korean vinyl pressings of Korean music I haven’t been able to find a copy of are pictured below. These are three records I am still trying to find:

HAPPY DOLLS Show Album No.1 VINYL LP (Canada) Solar SAR 2012 (1977) (The prices have gone up really high for this album so I might wait until I am lucky to pick up one for a modest price.)

KIM SISTERS Their first album TAIWANESE RED VINYL

キムチ シスタ-ズ  KIMCHI KATS  京城の夜 / アリラン 7 INCH VINYL 45 (Japan) Victor VS 558 (1961 – Airiang on B side, I think the group traveled to UK at one stage.)

There are a couple of European Kim Sisters records I am looking for also.

If interested … I also have a web page with info on Japanese pressings in my collection.

KIM SISTERS The Fabulous Kim Sisters Sing AUSTRALIA EP 1967

IMG_20180423_0003 - Copy

KIM SISTERS The Fabulous Kim Sisters Sing 7 INCH VINYL EP (Australia) Monument PXE-11,463 (1967 – incredibly rare release. Unfortunately, the copy of this EP that I finally found did not have a picture copy. Thus I have included pics of the labels only, however below are some pictures of a copy which sold on E-bay not long ago. This is very rare, and I wasn’t sure it actually existed until recently. Note: the E following PX indicates that this is a special Australian EXPORT pressing to be shipped for distribution to South East Asia.

Mic’s collection status: I now have a copy of the EP but my copy does not have a picture cover. It is in nice condition though.

Picture of the cover from E-bay below (I know the person who bought this picture cover copy actually), she has a lot of very rare records by the Kim Sisters and other Korean artists.

ARIRANG ELLY WILLIAMS US VINYL 1954

 

Scan_20180323

ELLY WILLIAMS Worry, Worry, Worry / Arirang (Ah-Dee-Dong) (US) Rainbow 45-253 RED VINYL (1954 – this single is of particular interest because it’s one of the first releases of Arirang on vinyl record (not shellac SP 78) anywhere. It may well be the first because I the song isn’t on the earlier Folkways LP. Rare.)

Mic’s collection status: I  have a copy of this 45.
