SAM HUI
Hong Kong 2020 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong; April 12, 2020. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast). Some audio dropouts in transmission. Hosted by HK actor Lawrence Cheng.

Ng Kang-chung, scmp.com:

Canto-pop legend Sam Hui, popularly known as the “Father of Canto-pop”, called on Hongkongers to remain united and positive during a free online concert broadcast on Sunday as the city battles the coronavirus pandemic. The 71-year-old singer played some of his greatest hits during the show that began at 5 pm and was shown on television and live-streamed on social media.

The one-hour performance was staged on the rooftop of the Harbour City shopping complex at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront against the backdrop of the Victoria Harbour skyline as the sun slowly turned the blue sky to a soft yellow. Hui began with a cover of Roman Tam’s Below The Lion Rock, an informal anthem of sorts for the city that calls for solidarity and rising above discord.

Armed with his acoustic guitar, he ran through about 20 other songs, including some of his greatest hits such as Bauhinia, Cherish, In the Same Boat, and Eiffel Tower Above the Clouds, all tributes to the affection Hong Kong people have for their city. His son Ryan joined him for a cover of the The Beau Brummels’ 1960s hit Just a Little.

According to the organisers, a global audience of more than 2.5 million watched the live-streamed concert via Facebook and the YouTube channel Health Egg. Due to restrictions on large gatherings, the performance took place without a live audience.

  2. Hey Anti , just found out Glenn Beckert died yesterday. Glenn played second base for then Chicago Cubs teams from the 60s Remember the double play infield or Ron Santo at third , Beckert at second, Don Kessinger at shortstop and Ernie Banks at first base ? Randy Hundley was the catcher. Billy Williams was a all star outfielder on them teams too . Ferguson Jenkins who had six straight 20 win seasons from 67 thru 72 led the pitching staff

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  3. Was a cardinal fan back then . Remember all them battles with the cubs . Gibson vs Jenkins was always a battle. Them teams back then usually kept the same lineup every year. No free agency back then

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  4. Same with cardinals, Mike Shannon at third , Dal Maxvill at short, Julian Javier at second and Orlando Cepeda at first base.,Tim McCarver was the catcher. Outfield of Lou Brock , Curt Flood and Roger Maris after they got him from the Yankees

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  5. Bob Gibson on the mound led the staff , folks forget that a young Steve Carlton was on them teams before he became great in Philadelphia

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  6. I remember the cubs blowing the penent in 69 to the Tom Seaver Mets . They had a nine game lead in late August and choked it away. Mets would beat the Orioles in the series

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  7. Well if nobody else is going to say it…..
    Fuck off you slant eyed Chinese Bastard !!!!!
    It’s because of you that a quarter of the world is dying….

  8. Derrick-
    You sound so sweet and innocent when you talk about baseball.
    But you can’t fool us- we know you’re an asshole.
    We’ve save all the receipts from the other threads.
    Have a great day :)

  10. I remember blowing the cubs in the penent in 69 and then blowing the the Tom Seaver Mets , too . They had me do a 69 game , they wouldn’t blow me and I choked on their cum . Mets would beat the Orioles in the series but I just blew anyone .

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  13. Hey Anti , just found out Glenn Beckert died yesterday. Glenn let me suck his bit one when he played second base for then Chicago Cubs teams from the 60s Remember the double play infield or Ron Santo at third - i sucked him off his minutes before that , Beckert at second - having just buttfucked me in the dugout, Don Kessinger at shortstop , me with his cum on my face and Ernie Banks - who wouldn’t let me blow him ever at first base ? Randy Hundley was the catcher -I got to be the pitcher . Billy Williams was a all star outfielder with a nine inch prick on them teams too . Ferguson Jenkins who had six straight 20 win seasons from 67 thru 72 led the pitching staff and I got to suck him off too

    By Derrick on Apr 13, 2020

  14. Derrick- I’d eat out their asses if I was there. They could have reamed me with a Louisville Slugger while I was doing it and gotten head from you at the same time!! I’d get really into it and wrap my shitty tongue around your tonsils and jack you off!! Damn I’m as hard as one of those petite carrots!!!

    By THE ANTICHRISTE on Apr 14, 2020

Same with cardinals - I gave ‘em all blow jobs , Mike Shannon at third with a 4 inch prick that was wide as a mayonnaise jar , Dal Maxvill at short but his prick was LONG , Julian Javier at second and up my asshole and Orlando Cepeda at first base as I icked his fetid balls., Tim McCarver was the catcher but I was catcher to his big long dong. Outfield of Lou Brock who made me choke , Curt Flood and Roger Maris after they got him from the Yankees they got me in dugout

  20. You boys better quit telling all our secrets or Anti’s gonna have another heart attack. He’s almost out of nitro pills and the pharmacy is out-of-bounds with all this Covid-19 stuff. He’s eating all kinds of foods he’s not supposed to like hot links (you should see how he plays with them while he eats ‘em) hamburgers, flaming hot cheetos - all kinds of shit. I think it’s all the stress. I hope he doesn’t go nuts again like he did when he threatened to kill Billy. That was scary how crazy he went. Billy - where are you anyway?

  36. Led Zeppelin appeared on BBC Radio’s Top Gear
    14 Apr 1969
    This was probably the first Led Zeppelin version of Dazed & Confused recorded for BBC radio, and certainly the first audition panel for Led Zeppelin. The setlist is:

    I Can’t Quit You Baby
    Communication Breakdown
    Dazed & Confused

    The trial broadcast was sent to the production panel, here it is.

    By Jimmy Page on Apr 14, 2020

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Apr 14, 2020

  38. Derrick check out this movie umm I can’t remember the name, its about that greaseball Alan Ameche. He was the first goombah Heisman Trophy winner. Oh wait - they didn’t make a movie about him because italians aren’t white anyway.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Apr 14, 2020

    By Tom on Apr 14, 2020

  50. After suffering through all the usual racist crap and sports bullshit, which have no place here, can we talk about the music for a change? Sam Hui deserves more credit than he gets as the godfather of Cantopop. Like many pop stars of his generation, he started off by singing mainly in English, but started to write songs which address the everyday conerns of Hong Kong people in their own language.

    By Rod on Apr 15, 2020

  51. There’s a story here which you missed. Our abysmal Chief Executive Carrie Lam (popularity rating below ten percent and falling) interrupted a meeting to watch this concert and posted an old picture online of herself with Sam Hui. The concert organisers had to reassure the public that the event had no connection with the government, as people were beginning to stop watching because of this!
