(3) Doris Ang - Sandboys - Chinese 60s Music

Another singer is Doris Ang, and according to some enthusiasts, is popular in the late 60s. She is backed by a group called The Sandboys and recorded the EP titled, Crying In A Storm (1966). It has been pressed by Japanese singer, Emy Jackson and The Smashmen (1965) and one of the oldest J-Pop. The Quests too have accompanied Rita Chao.

The selection on this EP includes, Me The Peaceful Heart, a fast beat Lulu favourite, Simon Says by 1910 Fruit Gum Company (a late 60s bubblegum sing-a-long) and How To Catch A Boy. The recordings are in Chinese on vinyl ST 1007.

The interpretation of the song and standard of performance is, in comparison to other 60s bands, amateurish but worth listening to. Not meaning to be critical or insulting the recordings sound like a jam session with the guys next door, typical garage band and decently good.
