Music: Vintage Asian 45’s

Asia is a big place. China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, India, the Phillippines – even Iran and Iraq are considered as West Asia. These 45’s are from all over Asia. You can see the American influence on a number of these. The choice of songs, the style of dress (a lot of Beatles and Stones influence), even the names. Some sound like 50’s Do-Wop; The Melodians, The Emeralds, Some like 60 psyche – Clique Fantastique, or my favorite – The Polar Bear 5.
