Originally released in 1959. More fascinating recordings of traditions and folk songs from a different Thailand to the one we know today. Some of these sound similar in style to what you might hear today, while others are like anything. Fantastic liner notes give amazing background to music that was described in 1959 as 'rapidly dying out'. Probably some of it did, but you can hear it here.
