(2) From HK Vintage Pop Radio Website

1) "Teresa Carpio is like the Aretha Franklin of Asia. Seriously respectable, seriously extraordinary. Her career and fame skyrocketed after her stint in Japan, followed by a superbly successful release of English albums in Hong Kong. Now teaching singing lessons in Toronto and occasionally performing, Teresa remains the most soulful, enchanting and seriously spectacular diva."


2) "This fan had the pleasure of being on stage with Teresa Carpio but cannot remember the date. It might have been around 1978 or 79. She was the star of the production of City of Broken Promises. Also in starring roles were James Shigeta and Byron Webster. She was absolutely fantastic. She did a lot of singing in the production and this fan was taken aback with the emotion that she portrayed. Every performance, she cried real tears. It was amazing to witness."

3) "She is a role model for singers and this fan first listened to her songs in the mid 70s. Since then she had never come across another singer anywhere in the world who can really make you grow to love the songs the way she did. Would very much like to get in touch her."

4) She has performed in many countries as far apart as Singapore, Malaysia, Tahiti, Brunei, the USA and Canada. Always helping the needy, she hosted her first charity signature gathering in Singapore when she was only 18.

5) OK. But didn't she pose for Playboy in 1968? Supposed to have been a sophisticated pose?

Finally I found it after a search. It was lying in the cupboard. Remember I have it after Victor Koo mentioned, 'Conversations'.

Carpio EMI: 1975 S-33ESX-226, has Conversations, When Will I See You Again, I've Got The Music In Me, One Hell Of A Woman, Sad Sweet Dreamer on Side 1.

Side 2 includes: We May Never Love Like This Again, I Cann't Believe How Much I Love You, Do YOu Love Me, Jamie, Try To Understand, Chapel Of Love, Kissin' In The Back Row Of The Movies.

Arrangement and conducted by: Vic Cristobal and Nonoy Ocampo. It's has a very well thought out mix of songs and for S$2.00 worth more than its weight in gold.

Judging from the titles, I guess this must be a relatively new album. Definitely not 60's; probably 80's.

Dear Mr Lam, It's 1975. Try not to doubt me.
Cheers

Dear Mr Lum,
I try to limit my postings of pop music from the 50's to the 70s.
