Love is Blue!



A truly fab cover of Love is Blue! I really like the spoken verse in the middle of the song. The identity of the male vocalist is a mystery, as is the blurry guy in the photo above. Maurice Patton (of The Melodians), or Simon Junior (Patrina's labelmate)? The Melodians were an A-Go-Go instrumental band who also recorded on their own, besides backing artists like Patrina and Simon Junior.

Patrina and The Melodians - Love is Blue

You can hear another song by Patrina at this myspace page set up by a fellow Singapore 60's pop enthusiast. Speaking of myspace, even Rita Chao and Penny Lim have myspace pages of their own! Kudos to whoever set up these two pages.

Did I send you the version by Heather w/The Thunderbirds? It was just a great song.

Don't know how or why, but I have more Melodians records than any other artist. One of them features Patrina, covering These Boots Were Made For Walkin', Besame Mucho, and a version of Unchain My Heart, where she her vocals are sometimes out of tempo with the music.

Thanks for including links to my pages. And BTW I talked to Joseph P this weekend...He said you did a fantastic job on your exhibition. Wish I could have seen it!

Yup I have that Heather version too! I posted it here before.

Yeah it's a pity you won't get to see the exhibition (it's still on til the end of the year though). Have you checked out the audio clips by Vernon Cornelius, on the 60s music scene?

Good version :-) Thanx!

I think that was Maurice in the background. Doubtful it was Simon Junior singing in the background.

Big Thanks for this fab version of Love Is Blue I had never heard of. I hope you don't mind that I put a link on my Eurocovers blog.

Anyone know where I can find the version by Betty Chung?

Hi, this is very funny to hear, when did she record this version? Well, I know it does not sound nice, but I still do prefer the original version of Vicky Leandros from 1967.

Since i downloaded this last year it sort of became my theme song, or the song that defined the year. I moved house for a spell with just a couple of cds i'd assembled (unheard of for me!!) one of them containing this gem, and the rest is history!! How I wish I could find a copy of the 45! Then I could dispense with all my other horrid records.

So i guess 'Thanks' doesn't quite cover it!!!
