I grew up listening to Rita & Sakura. It was them who inspired me to become a Tv producer in Singapore back in the 80s.

I wonder if you can post their music in MP3 format.

Please pretty please.... KS

These two ladies started a Music Revolution where copy versions of popular Western hits were recorded with Mandarin lyrics. Fans love it! This album was one of the best benchmark of that type of music.The presence of The Quests also boosted the popularity of Mandarin pops. Some of Rita & Sakura's recordings are available on CD. It might is a treasure hunt but its worth the effort, I bet you.

In the album Talk Of The Town by Rita Chao & Sakura, the track She Wears My Ring was sang by Sakura in Mandarin. This album should still be available in some of the shops selling old vinyls. cheers.
