I have come across one LP - "The Right To Sing", but there were two other CDs, titled "Hold Me Now" and "Miracle Of Love". These CDs were available at HMV - City Hall a couple of months ago. Not sure whether there are still stock available. Cheers.

The correct order of Sarah Chen's English albums should be: (1) 1983 - "The Right to Sing", (2) 1987 - "Miracle of Love" and (3) 1988 - "Hold Me Now".

Hi Vernon,
Greetings from Adelaide S Australia!
This poem is dedicated to you and Jo Wu:


I’m glad of the world wide web
Cause through the superhighway on the internet
We can go back in time
To the Singapore we left behind.
It’s easy to stroll down memory lane
For those who left her shores and those who remained
With the music of the era as time measures
And images of record covers that bring back memories we treasure
We relive our youth and struggling days
When life was simple in many ways.
Most of us didn’t have much but we did share
The “kampong” spirit that seem everywhere
I guess it is only in our minds that we recapture
The times when Singapore was young, innocent and immature.
But I’m glad that like most of us approaching our seventies
To have grown up as a teen in the Sixties!
