Mojo’s 4 Stars Album Review

Seoul Rebel

‘…It’s clear Shin was as important to Korean rock in the 1970 – 75 as Phil Spector had been to America’s pop scene a decade earlier…Korea’s rock industry was in its infancy…He (Shin) was manufacturing groups and scouting solo singers- unlike Spector, who wanted your fill attention focused on the A-side- Shin was using their flips for his own experiments, ploughing fast into hard rock while filling the charts with quality pop.”
