Singapore 60 Men Fashion On Vinyl Covers (Part II)

Now the boys. Just as fashionable as the ladies, they dress as well for that stage performance and look set with their tops, bell-bottoms or drain-pipes. Each gentleman cuts a dashing figure with his outfit.

Handsome and clean cut Randy Lee (left image), rhythm guitarist with The Stylers, is preparing for an evening bash with his boys in a dark grey 70s cut suit. He looks exceptionally confident in the simple yet stylish outfit. Tie and shoes to match. She's A Yum Yum, I Get So Excited, Mississippi Line and Love Grows (Where Rosemary Goes) are the four songs featured on this particular EP (Panda Brand: HREP 7003).

Chinese singer Chai Chen hangs his white jacket and flirts by the beach in white long sleeves and a maroon four-button vest and dark pants. Brown suedes complete the look. All he needs is to don the jacket and he'll be ready to croon Sayonara with his accompanying band The Travellers. Together with three Chinese songs, his recording under Jubilee (JE 5044) sold many copies.

With a short crop, Chinese singer and go-getter Peter Shu beats the lot in his eye-catching, always attractive red, black and white combination. The informal black vest with white trims and double whammy belts around his waist complete the picture. The stream-line white boots, accentuate his bell-bots. There's A Kind Of Hush, Love You Love You, Black Is Black and Proud Mary (InterWorld Record: WAA 1504) are the songs available.

It is kind of fun to go back in time and recall how things have changed from what they were when we were much younger. Oh, how the years fly by so quickly!

YOu are right. Music and fashion are similar and when we look at old photographs and listen to melodies of past years we realise the changes we go through.

Thanks for writing.

Thanks Ahyar for the comments.

Yes, and this is what I am doing, reliving the days but more so, learning from 60s music friends the years I missed because of our work schedules.

This blog is for us but also for the young who have written in to say how much they enjoy reading it.

I hope you will write often having come home from your long, oversea holidays.
