Ladies & Gentlemen, we are now arriving in Vietnam. We'll stay here for a few weeks. Our little trip will focus on patriotic music from the sad days of Vietnam war. Though we don't have much clue about it we'll probably get a guide to help us on our way...
Today, we'll start with VIET NAM QUE HUONG TOI (Dihavina CKS 004, early seventies), a truelly gorgeous record (even if the LP is near mint the pressing is not very good). It wasen't possible to get any informations about this record exept from the translation of songs tittles. Dihavina records seems to have been pretty active during war time and I guess they are still putting up records today. This record sounds like communist patriotic music, it reminds of luxurious old movies soundtracks and occidental opera orchestras... Lots of musicians (strings, piano...) and high class vocals and choirs (list on back cover). Sorry folks we don't know anything else about it, we just hope you'll enjoy it as much as your captain does!
