Sakura & The Quests Go Boom!
Here's a fab garage rock stomper from Sakura, backed by The Quests. Just listen to those guitar riffs at the intro! Not something you'd expect from a Connie Francis cover. From The Singapore Encyclopedia: "Sakura's vocal 'trademark' was her yodelling - she came to be known as the 'Yodelling Singer'. Along with Rita Chao (...) they were both known as 'A Go-Go Queens of the Sixties". You can catch a tiny bit of her yodelling in this song.
Sakura & The Quests - Stupid Cupid
And good news - you can now purchase tracks off "Recollecting Singapore Vol 2" at these two digital download sites: 7digital.com and Soundbuzz. WMA files only though. Included in the compilation line up are two Rita & Sakura duets, and one by Sakura & The Quests.
