Sweet Stevie Loraine!
I'm back after a long blogging hiatus. And with new music to share, as you've gathered from the recent posts (& more to come, I promise). I still love local Singapore 60s, and it's with great pleasure that I present one of my favourite buys of this year!
This is Stevie Loraine, backed by The Clansmen, comprising: Abdullah Abu (lead), Derrick Nunis (rhythm), Philip Monteiro (drums), and Raymond Lazaroo (bass). I'm guessing it was released (or purchased) in 1967, because that's scribbled in marker on my sleeve. Prior to this EP, Stevie Loraine recorded one backed by The Dukes, and you can view the sleeve here.

Singapore 60's Pop Music Hall Of Fame is a recent blog, with lots of sleeve art and short writeups. Must-visit here!
Another single featuring The Clansmen, here.
