關淑怡(Shirley Kwan) - Shirley's Era

Honestly, am unfamiliar with her. I never and won’t know her if she didn’t have this release. After I received news about her new release after 14 years, I started to search for her biography. Found, she is 1 of the oldies, who actually famous in the music world…. Hmmm.. could be saying am really up to date, those old time favorite not in my data. Lolz.

I got caught on this album as it is fabricated on its album cover, and limited edition some more. How could a music lover n fancy music cover and design lover could let it goes. Finally I got a copy of that. What I can say. She is one of the legends. Her singing is brilliant.

The first play was the dvd, as I have NO IDEA how’s her appearance is. Lolz. Dvd has 5 mvs, where 2 mvs were adapted from her recent concert. First song from the cd, 天規with a good start of catchy music as knew it gonna be something fast. Hmm, expectation didn’t fail me. 3rd song duet with Leo Ku, is well praised and recommended to all. First heard, arg, I love it very much. Its fun to listen, pleasant to enjoy and happy ending. For those who haven knows, have a go with it.

只得一次, will be my 2nd recommendation to all. Brilliant melody, you would like to have it replay on your hi fi, and never get fed up. This album recorded well known TVB movie, “zhu guang bao qi” main theme. Tango style music? Yea, the music made my body moved for the first play.

The 2 remix version, wasn’t disappoint me. They are good tune. Actually both songs are in my IPOD’s – “Shake ur Body” list. Basically it’s the list with fast tempo songs. Well, once again I never regret to own this album. Although songs like 28日, isn’t my type of music, but then a good try and collection to have it in my list.

The Main Cover, as obvious

From this pic, u r able to c the hard box was actually covered with fabric. B4 i thought it was the Chinese traditional hand craft 绣. or d same family as it is given a unique texture. Didnt expect its jz a printing. Haiz... disappointing.

The Cd, Dvd and the lyrics booklet.

Well, tis is good graphic. I myself would be praise the design more if this is fabricated, but it is on paper.

lastly, the song list. sorry for poor lighting. Tats ntg to concern about, if you are fans of her, you wont be bother up to brighten the pic. Get a copy now. If 1st limited edition is out of print, the 2nd edition is always waiting for you.

Hi. I came across your blog while searching for the images of Shirley's era. Could you please post a clear photo of the spine of the hardcover? I know this might be weird to you but I don't know anybody else to ask. Thank you :)
