"The Sanullim (also spelt as Sanulrim) band is rightly considered to be one of the most influential figures on the South Korean rock scene. Composed of three brothers born into a well-off family, Kim Chang-wan, Kim Chang-hoon and Kim Chang-ik, the bands first name, when they were still university students, was A Mu-Lee (or Mui), but was to be changed to San Ul Lim ("Echo from the mountains") at the record companys request. Released in 1977, their debut album was a great commercial success selling over a million copies. Inspired by both the garage rock of the 1960s and the jittery punk music of the time, San Ul Lim delivered a sound that was still new in South Korea. It is a surprising sound indeed that contrasts with the apparently casual lyrics, as the censorship imposed by Park Chung-hees regime forced the members of the band to compose songs that did not actually call for any relevant changes. The band released over ten albums, then parted ways after drummer Kim Chang-iks sudden death in 2008. This collection gathers for the first time the bands best pieces from 1977 to 1979, thus covering the psychedelic period of the first five albums. This is a rare opportunity to listen to and enjoy the music of the fuzziest band in South-East Asia." - Dounia.
