Randy and I were at a food outlet having satay and dessert when a group of young men and women converged on the place to enjoy a late night supper. As they gathered and sat around us, a young lady noticed the gleaming CDs on our table. She looked at one as said, "I know the Stylers!" Deja vu I screamed to myself. Like Larry Lai's interview!
The rather large group was getting noisier and some of them joined in my conversation with Randy, so in my enthusiasm for figures Randy mentioned, "I cannot recollect the actual numbers but they are estimated to be in the hundreds."
The mostly popular songs they recorded also went into the hundreds and as Randy rattled off the titles, I realised there were too many to document. "John (Teo/band leader) is remarkable. He did the music arrangement for every song, but because he is such a gifted musician, he did it with speed and accuracy," said Randy. "The change in group dynamics over the years did not affect us very much because it was a simple matter of working hard and achieving our targets.
*Albums recorded and not copies sold (which would have been more.)
