A few nights ago whilst doing some late night searching for images of the Taiwanese girl group The Petals (as you do) I found this amazing blog:
I can't believe I didn't know about it before, the information on there is incredible, it catalogues recorded popular music of the '60's and '70's from many, many countries including East Asia (which obviously I am particularly interested in). What a brilliant resource: cover art, mp3s and historical and cultural information.
Just take a look, for instance, at the Singapore page.
The creator Stuart Ellis compiled the excellent Bollywood Steel Guitar CD for Sublime Frequencies and he will be doing some other compilations for them soon.
I found this picture of Cai Mi Mi & Five Petals Guitar Band too (see above) on the Taiwanese page too.
