筷子姊妹花 The Chopsticks

筷子姊妹花 The Chopsticks,這支香港流行樂壇史上首創的女子合唱組合,由香港出生帶中英血统的仙杜拉Sandra及來自台灣山地族的亞美娜Amina於六十年代末組成。


雖然當時適值是本地流行樂壇的低潮期,但基於她們極為洋化的外型及新潮的裝扮,加上出色的歌唱造詣,出道不久後仍廣受樂迷歡迎。她們早期駐唱於中區希爾頓酒店Hilton Hotel的鷹巢(Eagle’s Nest)夜總會,並不時在無線電視(HK-TVB)翡翠台的"歡樂今宵"及由方逸華主持的"可樂晚唱"節目中演出。1970年,獲娛樂唱片公司簽約灌錄唱片,其後更經常往海外登台;同年4月下旬,無線電視為她們製作了首次一系列的"筷子之歌"每週專輯節目,播出獲好評如潮後,1972年11月至1973年3月期間,再推出另一新的系列。惜至1973年中時分,組合突然宣佈正式拆夥。




下列是筆者於多年來,可找到的筷子姊妹花唱片及其有關曲目、內容資料。並在此鳴謝Justin君提供個別唱片封套掃描相片。
