Julai Tan Or July Tan Orchestra In Song Recital

Blogger is certain the orchestra that accompanied Chinese singer Chin Whai in a "song recital" on this recording is JULAI TAN's and not JULY TAN as printed on this back sleeve cover from Eagle Record (image).

Mr Julai Tan is a well-known violinist and music teacher from the 60s and had played for many a packed hall in Singapore. 

He was at the Raffles Hotel for some years performing both pop and semi-classical music to patrons who visited the hotel for an evening's entertainment and night out.

Could someone confirm that this particular recording is by Julai Tan? Or is there a July Tan? Are there many more recordings of this nature? Do write in.

I don't know about July/Julai Tan but I certainly remember Chin Wai', He say Gu Qing Hua right? Very nice. Do you know where I can listen to it?

I have only one copy of Chin Wai vinyl. Perhaps you can do a posting for me about him.

If you have a gadget to record from vinyl to CD I can certainly lend you Chin Wai's record, if it is the correct one.
