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 (CD).
