My early memories of Anita was when she was performing at the Top of the Mandarin - Kasbah Nightclub during the 60s. Occasionally sees her at the Chatterbox Coffee House, famous for their Hainanese Chicken Rice at about $10 per plate, after her performance. This lady is a class of her own, even appeared at Las Vegas for a period.

Dear Vernon,

Her first EP had her backed by New Mandarins which was Mathew and his Mandarins. They play soul and it is a rare outing for Anita. She came a long way from there.
