Second Folk Album

《Second Folk Album》是麗風唱片公司(Life Records) 於1970年內出版的第二張歐西民謠歌曲LP。對比於首張的《First Folk Album》,這回參與灌錄《Second Folk Album》的本地歌手及組合,明顯地與上次的並不完全相同。一向以來,這張以昔日被稱為樂壇金牌經理人的梁柏濤Pato Leung作掛名監製的唱片,在筆者心目中是享有不變的極高評價。因這不僅是它收錄了筆者喜愛的"Interlude"、"A Lover’s Concerto"、"There Is A Ship"等本地演譯版,還有的是那意境優美的外頁封套設計, 一幅由已故國際著名攝影家錢萬里先生提供的黃昏日落景色圖片.....

Sam Hui – Interlude

由許冠傑Sam Hui演譯的" Interlude ",是來自著名法國籍電影作曲家Georges Delerue1968年影片Interlude (玉樓春曉)中的同名插曲作品,原曲由已故的女歌手Timi Yuro首唱。


"Interlude"試聽版﹕





*Time is like a dream
And now for a time you are mine
Let's hold fast to the dream
That tastes and sparkles like wine

Who knows if it's real
Or just something we're both dreaming of
What seems like an interlude now
Could be the beginning of love
Loving you is a world that's strange
So much more than my heart can hold
Loving you makes the whole world change
Loving you I could not grow old
No, nobody knows when love will end
So till then, sweet friend

(Repeat *)


Doris Hardoon – Conversation

擁有猶太裔父系及華人母系血統的Doris Hardoon ,現時是在其夫婿創立的藝術及室內設計所內負責行政創作的工作。她演譯的"Conversation",是原自Joni Mitchell1970年的作品。





"Conversation"試聽版﹕



Tripod Cauldrons【註】 – Jesse James

Tripod Cauldrons這次演譯的"Jesse James",是來自Martin Christian的傳統美國鄉謠作品。


"Jesse James"試聽版﹕



Peter Holbrook【註】 – Fragments


"Fragments"是Peter Holbrook本人的作品。


"Fragments"試聽版﹕



Terry & Bill – Lover’s Concerto

筆者早前已有貼文http://blog.roodo.com/macaenese5354/archives/4754635.html記述此曲。



John Chen & Richard Yuen – Ages

"Ages"是由兩位負責這專輯編曲兼伴奏者John Chen及Richard Yuen演譯的純音樂(Instrumental)作品。

"Ages"試聽版﹕





Agnes & Irene Chan – Circle Game

演譯Joni Mitchell1970年的作品"Circle Game"是我們熟悉的陳依齡Irene Chan、陳美齡Agnes Chan姊妹,亦是令陳美齡走紅港澳及日本樂壇的首支灌唱歌曲。



"Circle Game"試聽版﹕



Paul & Francis 【註】 – Unwaking Dreams

筆者找不到由這二男組合演譯的"Unwaking Dreams"是出自何處,猜測這極可能是他們自己的作品。

"Unwaking Dreams"試聽版﹕



Iris & Alice – There Is A Ship

在《
First Folk Album》專輯中的二女一男組合& Iris, Alice & Paul,不知甚麼原因,這次沒有了男成員Paul的份兒,只由Iris & Alice她倆來演譯這首原自Milton OkunPeter Paul & Mary1964年的作品"There Is A Ship"



"There Is A Ship"試聽版﹕



Foggy Mountain Five 【註】– Gentle On My Mind

這支外籍組合演譯的"Gentle On My Mind",是原自六十年代已故

    Dear Tommy,

    Welcome to this blog!

    I've also read your message from another blog site of mine ( http://blog.roodo.com/macaenese5354/archives/6086793.html ) which is having same content as this blog. The reason why you couldn't listen to the broadcasting of this song through the player tool of both these 2 sites, presumably, is due to the bandwidth usage limitation & external linkage problem of the server site (i.e. roodo.com) where I uploaded the song to. In view of this, I've re-loaded the item to other accommodation site and I think now that you could listen to it through the player tool of this blog. But for all those ("Unwaking Dreams" included) I put onto the blog at Roodo, I think they have to be waited until the said problems with Roodo are solved or the operation of its facilitating tools are back to normal.....

    FYI, recent information from E-shop "Yesasia.com" shows that the pertinent CD album is temporarily out of stock. So if you're now living outside Hong Kong and would like to get one, I'm afraid that you have to seek helps from friends or relative in HK to buy it from local retail outlets like HMV, HK Record, Rock Gallery or CD Wareshouse, etc....
