From the Archives: A note from Unc Dicko today. I have asked to write about Sam Toh as guest blogger. I hope he responds positively. His note appears at the end of this posting.
One of Singapore's most distinctive bands in the 60s recorded Sugar Sugar in 1969 when the song was at the top of the pops.
The Quests with its new line-up of members, are, Reggie Verghese, Sam Toh, Wee Guan, Jap Chong and Peter Richards.
They pressed an EMI/Columbia EP ECHK 647 that included, Sugar, Sugar and He Ain't Heavy... on side one and Baby Make It Soon and Holiday on side two.
As with most bands then, they took advantage of the popularity of these songs and covered them. With their own distinctive sound and composition the Quests added more hits to their already large stable of goodies.
