Down In The Valley - Music, Movies, Minneapolis & More

* (4 Stars) "An incredible collection" - Record Collector* (4 Stars) "... as important to Korean rock in 1970-75 as Phil Spector had been to America's pop scene a decade earlier, and every bit as busy." - MOJO* (4 Stars) "The ten-plus-minute title track that closes the set is a labyrinthine folk-psych, acid-drenched masterpiece... It's an epic worthy of Morricone's spaghetti Western scores - had Morricone been born a guitarist. Ultimately, Beautiful Rivers and Mountains is more than a mere curiosity piece; for all it's easy-to-recognize styles, Shin's way of enmeshing them into something original underscores rather than erases their strangeness and splendor - even to widely exposed Western ears - making this is an excellent introduction to his work." - AllMusicShin Joong Hyun's tale is personal, spiritual, and deep, not only reflecting the full spectrum of human emotions but also reverberating with echoes of sound, some beautiful and life-giving, others restless and ungovernable. These career-spanning anthologies gather Shin's work as a guitarist, songwriter, producer and arranger of mind-altering experimental pop, acid-folk, and extended psych-funk jams. A musical trip existing somewhere between Motown, Hendrix, and the Velvet Underground.
