GROUP TERENCHEM


Found this one today, it's in a very very bad condition, deep scratches on the A side, I can only share the last song from that side and a few skips on the B side, and without a cover, got it for a dollar :) Group Terenchem was a group in the late 60' and 70's and they're known as one of the better psych band from that period in Indonesia, they put out a couple of albums. This however is not a psych album, pretty standard pop music on this one, very typical for the period.... There's one album that many people are looking for, very, very expensive, I've seen it once, heard some French guy bought it for around 100 dollars, but that was in bandung, in Jakarta you'll probably would pay 2 maybe 3 times that amount nowadays.....
