Asian Record Labels You Might Not Notice
You wouldn't associate PRECIOUS URN (click image) with vinyl records unless you are familiar with 60s pop music in other languages like Chinese, Malay, etc. Similarly CONTERSIONS, STREP, ART SEA RECORD, SAKURA and PANDA RECORDS are just some record labels that are unfamiliar to some Singaporeans.
Private labels or otherwise they are special and we don't see similar labels in the market nowadays but new ones are popping up to replace them all the time.
Enthusiasts are just buying the recording as a musical package and not bother with labels.
(Goodness! This post is the 100th.)
