สองเรา 7″ EP (Thai film soundtrack)

เศรษฐา ศิระฉายา (Setha Sirachaiyaa) from legendary Thai band The Impossibles moved into smoother sounds in the late 1970s and 80s. This EP 7″ from the film สองเรา (“The Two of Us”) is a perfect example of his lounge-style crooning. The final song on the EP comes from ชัยรัตย์ เทียบเทียม (Chairat Teeibteeim), it continues the vibe but adds an acoustic guitar.

A far cry from the funk and disco sounds of the “Hot Pepper” album,  but enjoyable nonetheless
