Carrie Ku Mei

carrie ku

Listen to a fabulous track from this CD

Get the whole CD here.

Carrie Ku Mei (or Carrie Koo Mei) acted and/or sang in some of the greatest Mandarin Hong Kong films of the 60s, including The Lark, The Love Eterne and The Blue and the Black (both parts).

This CD, the title of which, after a bit of Google translatin', I believe means something along the lines of "You don't need to say anything" or "When you say nothing" or "Need to understand," was released as part of the "Back to Black" series in 2008 and is already out of print. Frankly, it's distressing how much of recent Hong Kong stuff goes out of print within a year or two.

Found on the Bowery, in a CD/DVD store that has recently either relocated or closed altogether.

Opening credits and a fab dance scene from "The Lark":
