60s Country & Western Influence: Rocky Wong

Taken from: - August, 30th, 2008.

"A recent quirky local 60s find. This EP is best described on its sleeve as for, 'Country and Western Numbers With The A-Go-Go Beat'. Says the sleeve: 'Rocky Wong, the Singapore Hill Billy Singer, also nicknamed as the Cowboy from Pasir Panjang Hills, and whose style of singing resembles that of Slim Whitman, is no stranger to the music scene.
Rocky had competed in the All Malaya Amateur Talentime Competition during the 50s and had since then appeared in many variety shows, nite clubs, the British Forces, Radio and Television."
