Dear Kevin,

I'm not sure about Yoon Bok-hui's CDs (the only sites to buy CDs that I know of are YesAsia.com, Hanbooks and Seoul Selection, and neither of them tends to be that great with older albums). But have you come across this website (a Korean blog) of Korean oldies: http://blog.naver.com/kurt0181 ?

It doesn't have albums in their entirety, but I find it to be a nice resource (and also easy to search and good for learning lyrics).
