RITA CHAO (凌雲) - A COLLECTION OF PICTURES

Here's a collection of pictures of Singaporean singer Rita Chao (凌雲). A few pictures were sourced from the Internet; most of the others comes from my own records collection and are made available here for the first time.

This post is a work-in-progress, I will add more pictures and other memorabilia at a later date.

All my posts dedicated to Rita Chao on this blog are available here.



In the next months I will post more Hong Kong/Taiwan/Singapore/etc. Pop/Instrumental records released in the late-60s / mid-70s. As usual, I would like to provide information about these releases and their authors.

Unfortunately the Internet doesn't offer much information - written in English - about these artists and this is the reason why I need help: if you can translate from Chinese to English please get in touch with me at stereocandies [at] hotmail [dot] com or leave a comment in the box below, thank you so much!

It's been difficult to obtain these vinyls, some are not in the best conditions and I'm currently working hard to properly master them. It seems that these artists and their music are poorly known in the West, of course it's a real pity because they made stunning releases: I'd like to share them with you with a proper presentation, hope that someone will be able to help.
