This CD (image) is presently being sold on the international market too. Pop songs selected from our local music scene in the 60s and 70s featuring garage, rock, soul, beat, and "strange girl grooves taken from rare Malaysian 45s" are featured on this particular compilation.
The article explains that the tunes blend American, European rock and pop sounds with "more traditional sounds of Asia and the Malaysian peninsula - many with female vocals, and catchy and groovy" tunes. The article also describes that "the percussion and organ sounds are especially fantastic, with wailing and echoing grooves galore."
The songs become more familiar as each title and artiste name is provided. They include, Each And Every Flower by Grace Lee & The Stylers, Good Luck In The New Year by Linda Yong & The Silvertones, Mimi Cat by Chew Yan & The Stylers, "Mountain Lady" by Charlie Electric Guitar Band's South Of Japan, "Spring Wind Kisses My Face" by Chen Jie And Golden Melody Band. There are 22 tracks in all.
It is interesting news as the revival of Singapore 60s music is going places. Blogger loves a copy.Image/Information from: © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
