Shirley Nair and The Silver Strings!
During Singapore's band craze of the 60s, "super bands" sprouted, featuring tie-ups of popular bands with well-known vocalists. For instance, besides recording on their own, The Thunderbirds also backed several vocalists in their recording career - Heather, Alan & Doug Lyford, and even Susan Lim (of The Crescendos)! The Quests is another example that springs easily to mind. I'm sure these attractive combinations worked well for the record-buying public!
This release features vocalist Shirley Nair, backed by The Silver Strings. Prior to joining The Quests, Vernon Cornelius was once a vocalist with the Silver Strings, though this line-up did not release any recordings.
