more records - Singapore Chinese Pop A Go Go

various artists, featuring Maurice Patton and the Melodians, The Stylers, Etc

Below -- Shaw Plaza. This is a movie theatre and plaza named after the great Shaw Brothers film studios. Shaw Brothers produced an incredible number of Chinese kung fu films, Opera style dramas, AND many early Malay / Singapore films (in particular, many of Tan Sri Datuk Amar P Ramlee's films).

(check out my friend duriandave's blog, Soft Film, for some incredible info about Shaw Brothers films and that whole era)
