      Absolutely nothing! And I'm serious about that. 60s/70s was the time of the Cultural Revolution in China, anything western, classical or even old was considered questionable and suspect and was often destroyed and the people humiliated and sent off to labor camps to reacquaint themselves with the "masses" of peasants.

      now there's probably something from Hong Kong or Chinese singers in other countries like Malaysia and Singapore, but as for China itself you're out of luck.

          Actually, if anybody has got some knowledge on Malaysia / Singapore or even S.Korea in terms of decent stuff.... don't be shy to post it.

          Picked up a few bits and pieces over the years and I'd be interested in knowing more.

            I've got an LP by the Malaysian (I think) instro group The Quests - they started off as a sort of Asian version of the Shadows, but developed a bit as the years went on - 'The Best Of The Quests' has a re-recording of one of their early hits, 'Watch Your Step ('Pop Inn' theme)' which has a nice fuzzy interlude that sounds like it was recorded in someone's garage!

            They seem to have been quite into their instrumentals over there - the Dance Band of the Black Watch's 'Swings Into The 70s' with the instrumental Younger's Tartan tune on it was a Hong Kong release, and I've also found the Malaysian issue of the Second City Sound's LP (they were a group from Birmingham who included among their number synthmeister Ken Freeman, who later wrote the theme from 'Casualty'&#33

            Moving to Hong Kong, Frances Yip's LP 'Discovery' has a nice track singing the praises of Cathay Pacific airlines, and a couple of interesting slightly funky arrangements of Asian folk songs. The follow-up LP 'Discovery 2' got an English release, I think, but it's not as good. Has she done anything else that's any cop?

              Well I think the impossibles were from thailand. The one to get from them is the 'hot pepper' lp. It was released in Sweden of all places. Its bloody good and bloody expensive (when it rarely crops up). Me want.

                I&#39;ve got a late 60s Malaysian LP somewhere by &#39;Pop Jawa&#39; - basically a hottie banging along to the latest hits on her kit - ridiculously insane and no doubt a prototype to one half of the White Stripes after several Red Stripes

                  Check out listing #1 from my man Oliver&#39;s &quot;Ish&quot; from Soulstrut. The group was from South Korea. DJ Shadow bought it while he was on tour there and then sold it to the Groove Merchant store in SF and then my friend got it from them. Has a sound clip as well to listen to.

                    &#39;After Being In Love&#39; sounds remarkably like War&#39;s &#39;Me And My Baby Brother&#39;.
