To keep things fresh and exiting for the second volume I’ve collected about as many 60’s/70’s dreamy pop and folk-grooves as those gorgeous trot-oldies we've all come to love. One gripping duet and a couple of instrumentals - but basically just ladies singing from beginning to end - ‘cause most of their male South Korean counterparts ruins potentially great tunes with an excessive vibrato. Here’s the slightly adjusted, short version of the backstory written for Volume 1:

-Many moons ago a former flatmate had this wondrous 1960’s or early 70’s female fronted, South Korean Trot/folk-pop record that we used to spin all the time. In my unsuccessful search for that original album I came across hours of enchanting folk, pop and gentle trot-oldies from the same era instead. Here’s another hour of "accidental" song discoveries and if you fail to find anything to love, I’m afraid you better go see a cardiologist asap -Moahaha
