Re-up: Sroeng (Suang) Santi, the Black Superman! - "Phu Yingyai" - with Black Sabbath Cover! full album!
This week I would like to introduce Suang Santi (sometimes misspelled Sroeng Santi), a singer that started with rather common Luk Thung songs but later introduced Rock and Soul elements to his music, mixing it with great humor and political statements. He even did one Disco Album, but fans of Finders Keepers may know him mainly for his cover version of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man", repressed as a 7inch a couple of years back. "Phu Yingyai" ("the greatest") features a cover version of The Black Superman (Johnny Wakelin) as well as some Black Sabbath inspired songs (Dub Fai Kui Gan, Naman Paeng, Mai Rak Yaa Rak) that pop up from time to time on compilations, but the whole album is the real deal. As a little extra I included "Khuen Khuen Long Long", his iron Man Cover. Please forgive me as always for not naming single tracks, but to post A- and B-side as single tracks. Re-up!
