七十年代的杜麗莎 Teresa Carpio

第一次聽到杜麗莎的歌聲及看到她的容貌,是在1972年後期麗的電視(RTV)製作的一輯名「麗聲之歌」的歌唱節目內。回想筆者當時的感覺,或可能與同年代也是她的首次聽眾或觀眾類似,就是她確有一美好的聲線及上佳的演唱水平,但疑問是以她其時的外形及身處一收視率較次的電視台下,她會否被本地樂迷廣泛接受呢?





這位出自音樂世家、1963年參加可樂汽水主辨的業餘歌唱比賽獲得冠軍、及已累積了很多公開演唱經驗的菲籍女歌手,雖然不時在RTV的歌唱節目中演唱了近三年還未能打出名堂來,但她不斷的努力最終是沒有白費的。1975年中,EMI為杜麗莎出版了她的首張個人LP《Teresa Carpio》,以翻唱剛在香港上映不久的電影「沖天大火災(The Towering Inferno)」主題曲"We May Never Love Like This Again"作主打。唱片推出後反應極佳,不僅她的"We May Never Love Like This Again"演譯版大受歡迎,連帶碟中的其他歌曲"Conversations"、"I’ve Got The Music In Me"、" I Can't Believe How Much I Love You"、"Could We Start Again Please"、以至"Sad Sweet Dreamer"等皆是當時電台DJ的熱播歌曲。同年十一月,她簽約無線電視(HK-TVB),主持後者專為她製作的個人節目「杜麗莎與你」,來取代「温拿狂想曲」。憑着HK-TVB的慣性高收視率、廣播電台DJ(尤其是商台)的大力吹捧、繼後新灌錄唱片的高銷量、加上她個人的專業及出色唱功,杜麗莎終於走上了她在七十年代中的大紅大紫之路。








1979年,隨着粵語流行曲逐漸成為了香港樂壇的新主流、的士高音樂進入高峯期、本地歌手翻唱西洋歌曲被樂迷受落程度大減等趨勢下,杜麗莎在過往數年間取得的美好成就,無何避免地已步進了她歌唱事業中的一段低潮,更兼與HK-TVB在續約條件的問題上談不攏。約滿後,她毅然離港前往美國,並於當地結婚及稍後誕下女兒TV,完結了她在七十年代香港樂壇中的光輝一頁。

〈小白鯊〉,這個當年還是商台DJ的俞琤曾替杜麗莎改的綽號,她為EMI共灌錄了七張LP,其中一張《Teresa Carpio & Lam》是和林子祥合錄。在復刻CD方面,刞共有5張,2張是全個人,2張是混合其他EMI歌星及組合,1張是《Teresa Carpio & Lam》。所有有關的LP及復刻CD曲目如下:

鍾珍妮、鍾安妮姊妹 (Jennie & Annie Chung)

七十年代的香港流行曲樂壇,曾出現了三支親姊妹合唱組合,其一是森森、班班,其ニ是鍾珍妮、鍾安妮,其三是樂家姊妹。論名氣及受歡迎程度,鍾珍妮、鍾安妮當然不及於森森、班班這對,但她們在當年的歌視圈內,也算是活躍及擁有高度爆光率的歌星組合。

本身可說來自演藝世家的鍾氏姊妹花,父親是小提琴手,哥哥亦曾組成樂隊參加比賽並獲獎;在筆者的有限記憶中,她倆曾遠赴日本學藝,回港後不時在無線及麗的電視台製作的綜藝及歌唱節目中演出,也常駐唱於數間當時的本地大酒樓夜總會。八十年代初,她們淡出本地樂壇,其後更移居加拿大發展及開班授徒教唱歌;在亙聯網上找到的有限資料顯示,她們近年還有參與一些由加拿大當地港人舉辧的音樂會及慈善綜藝晚會。

也許像筆者般年紀的當年港澳流行曲聽眾,已不大記起這對鍾氏姊妹花曾灌唱的歌曲,但筆者還存有的一張永恆唱片公司於1976年為她們出版的英語及日語歌曲LP《Jennie & Annie Chung》,或可替各方帶回一點有關她們的記憶。

Lyn Paul - "Love" & Marty Kristian - "Crying In The Rain"

1973至1975年期間,Lyn PaulMarty Kristian這兩位前〈The New Seekers〉樂隊成員,皆曾以個人名字獨唱方式,為其所屬寶麗多(Polydor)唱片公司灌唱了一些歌曲。其中的兩首都曾極被當年的港澳流行樂迷所喜愛,並也是筆者多年來的自列金曲。但可惜的是擁有版權的環球(UMG)或其前身的寶麗金(PolyGram)唱片公司,卻從未把這兩首歌名為"Love"及"Crying In The Rain"作CD形式出版。

The New Seekers〉樂隊於1974年中宣佈拆夥後,Lyn Paul隨即開展了她的個人歌唱事業,並繼續灌唱於寶麗多旗下,"Love"是1975年2月寶麗多Lyn Paul出版的第三張七吋單曲唱片Side A歌曲,Side B則是"I Could Get Arrested"。這兩首加上另一首她被某大名牌汽水借用為繼"I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing"之後推出的廣告歌曲"It Oughta Sell A Million",其後皆被收錄於她的首張個人LP唱片《Give Me Love》內。

  6. Just In Case    (Hratch)

"Love"


"Crying In The Rain"這首出自Howard GreenfieldCarole King的作品歌曲,1961年逕Everly Brothers首次灌唱及廣受歡迎後。1973年中,Marty Kristian把它重新編曲及以他低沉的聲調作演譯,他這張"Crying In The Rain"/"A Woman Grows"單曲唱片推出後,在當年港澳地區樂壇上的受落程度,一點也不差於Everly Brothers的先前版本,其後也被收錄於一張名為《Peter Paul & Marty》的LP專集內,而這LP專集更覆蓋了由其他兩位The New Seekers男成員Peter Oliver及Paul Layton主唱的歌曲。
