Rowena Cortes 露雲娜 (好市唱片年代)

1976年9月,一位年僅十四歲、在香港成長的菲籍活潑可愛女孩子Rowena Cortes(露雲娜),參加了無線電視(HK-TVB)舉辦的流行歌曲創作邀請賽,並憑著一首來自同鄉前輩Andy Bautista的作品"There's Gotta Be A Way",榮獲冠軍大獎。她獲獎後旋即被當時的好市唱片公司(House Records)青睞,在短短壹年間為後者灌唱了下列共三張的個人LP專集:

此外,在好市公司出版的數張合集LP唱片內,也有收錄了一些Rowena Cortes曾有或未曾有出現於上列其個人LP專集內的歌曲:

House Golden Hits 1976 Vol. 2    (1976/PHLP 767)



House Golden Hits 1976 Vol. 3    (1976/PHLP 7617)



Pop Folk    (Bang Bang Records/1977/PHLP 7621)



18 Greatest Hits Volume 1      (1977/PHLP 7625)



18 Greatest Hits Volume 2      (1977/PHLP 7633)


好巿唱片公司在1977年底被併歸繽繽唱片公司(Bang Bang Records)後,露雲娜於1978年改投EMI唱片公司,但只灌錄了一張個人的《Rowena Cortes Greatest Hits + 2》LP專集,她便離開了;其實該張專集,除了兩首是她首次為電影〈大煞星與小妹頭〉以粵語演繹戲中的主題曲"心花放"及插曲"誰能預計"外,其餘的全都是她在好巿唱片公司時期曾灌唱過的歐西歌曲。而她也是〈大煞星與小妹頭〉該片中的演員,更自始開始了在影視圈的發展。




1981年,無線電視(HK-TVB)推出了一套青春劇〈荳芽夢〉,露雲娜也有參與演出,並兼唱了由Anders Nelsson作曲的同名主題歌;這曲面世後大受聽眾歡迎,奠定了她繼續在往後轉唱粵語流行曲的基礎。同時她也改投了寶麗金(PolyGram)唱片公司,後者在1982年為她出版了一張名《青春1,000日》的個人LP專集,唱片內有其從唱以來的代表作"傳說"(無線電視(HK-TVB)的日本卡通片集〈千年女王〉插曲)、"荳芽夢"及"青春1,000日"等歌。其後她灌唱的熱賣歌曲,還有在1985年面世的"雨中Sha La La"及1987年的"戚眼眉"等。而她這些粵語歌曲,全都有收錄在九十及千禧年代寶麗金/環球唱片出版的《寶麗金88極品音色系列 - 露雲娜》、《二十世紀光輝印記露雲娜DCS聲選輯》、《真經典露雲娜Rowena Cortes》、《環球+百代 經典無間系列–露雲娜》、及《露雲娜 '87》、《青春 1,000日》CD專集內。

近年來,本地報章娛樂板已鮮有有關她的近況報導,僅有的是某網上討論區曾提到她的兒子已有十六、七歲,不會復出演唱了。

2006年,文志唱片公司終於出版了她在「好市」年代灌唱的歌曲CD版。
