Caravan – Kon Kab Kwai

Reissue of one of the rarest and most sought after releases from the Thai scene.  Having been rated 6 stars by Hans Pokora (well deserved as this LP consistently sells for 4 figures locally in Thailand), this has become near impossible to source, even in its native county as many were destroyed over the years.  Having been part of the Student Movement in Thailand, Caravan was forced into exile after an incident at Thammasat University in which student protestors were killed.  As some of the founders of the ‘Songs for Life’ genre, the music contained on this album helped bridge the gap between the farmers and students, which in turn changed the political and social landscape of Thailand to this day.  Arguably one of the most important albums ever released in South East Asia, this is not only a beautiful slab of ethnic folk rock, but has become a landmark in Thai history.  Fully licensed, we present the original album in paste-on gatefold sleeve with insert & original labels.  CD is limited to & numbered at 1,000 pcs, LP is limited & numbered at 550 of which 65 units are reserved for our limited edition box set.

THE LP RELEASE OF CARAVAN HAS SOLD OUT

****  We have just found out that due to a mixup at the cover factory, the numbering for the LP version has been missed.  This is an unfortunate result as we have advertised on the cover that they are numbered, as we expected them to be numbered inside of each jacket within the opening.  We are a Canadian company, and our vinyl products are made within the US.  We don’t get to see the covers/final vinyl until they are finished (the covers ship direct to the pressing plant), so we were unaware of this issue until after the LP had already sold out.  We are very sorry for this.  As a result of the fact we missed the numbering, we will offer a scan of our bill to show the pressing size as 550.  The CD and boxes are numbered in silver pen, this has been confirmed, we are very sorry for this mixup on the LP side.  Here is a copy of the bill for anyone concerned.  We will make sure to avoid any issues like this in the future as it’s embarrassing.  Here is the bill click here ****
