v/a "Groove Club Vol.3: Cambodia Rock Intensified"

This is of course another compilation of pre-Khmer Rouge pop music from Cambodia - vaguely psych sounds with soaring vocals and infectious grooves. One might to some extent buy this by the yard, but it still sounds very different to anything else you will ever hear, unless you are a keen follower of popular group Dengue Fever. There is one total stormer of a track on this - 'Gunya Rouh Sroh' (Miss Beautiful in English) by Ros Sereysothea. This driving tune would be worth the price of admission on its own, especially if you were one of those "disc jockey" fellows who likes playing records for people to "get on down".
