[2013-10-02] taken from SingTao Newspaper
Denise Ho sang Anita's Hit song "Like an Old Friend Coming". The MV was first shown at the Kowloon Convention Centre a couple days ago. The MV director is Steven Kwan (Director of "Rouge"). Denise said that this year is the 10th year anniversary of Anita's passing. This song is Denise's homework and a little gift for Anita. She feels that she has grown up and has become a lot more mature now. The art director is Cheung (Soke-Ping). There are 5 images in total. Certain ones resemble Anita a lot. The MV was filmed in an old residence in Beijing.
Steven Kwan said he and Anita became good friends after filming "Rouge". He is very happy to take part in the making of this MV. When he was asked if Denise Ho resembles Anita. He said a little bit. Not the appearance, but the feeling. He said Denise's image does bring out sensation of Anita. Denise said she is just "always-naughty" instead of "always-changing"..... to be Continue'd
......Translation continues from above.
Both Kwan and Cheung are helping out without charging any type of service fees. However, the production cost of the MV still reaches a 6-digit figure.
Denise said that the music company has limited resources, so they put all the money into making one MV for the entire CD. She said it is well worth it.
NOTE from BeepBeep:
It is not clear from reading this article whether or not the other songs in the CD are also Anita's songs, with Anita as the original singer. Does anybody know about this?
This is being discussed over at:
this link goes directly to page 49, go down to end of page
in the future, this link may not work, in that case try:
look for the page 1 of 49 buttons, click on page 49
Thank you so much for the links and your reply.
Wow! Is so nice to see your posting again back here.
Makes my day to know that some of us still have Anita in our minds and hearts.
Hard to believe it's been 10 years since her passing ....
I pre-ordered it and it came yesterday.
There is one brand new song, the rest are Anita's familiar songs. This link to YesAsia has the track list:
I think it is extremely good, a must have. At the bottom of the last page of English credits it says:
"Hocc would like to thank all those who helped in the making of this tremendously emotional album, in particular the Masters from the Mui Era: Eddie Lau, Stanley Kwan, Michael Lai and Anthony Lun...your participation and support in this project helped elevate it to a completely different sentimental level. May her love and passion be with you always. This is a collection of endeared memories, dedicated to my dearest mentor, Anita Mui. The Legacy Lives On."
This statement is absolutely true, there is nothing I could say to add to this. Denise has succeeded in her purpose. The songs have the feeling of a film soundtrack, some songs have bits of other songs folded into them, it's an artistic creation, not karaoke. The first thought I had was that it's like hearing Fantasy Gig for the first time. I'm sure some people won't like all of it right away, but the best music is often like that. It's artistically daring, and she made it work, and it could not have happened without the support of the 'Masters' listed above. Bravo!!
A DVD comes with it, with the MV and a short 'making of...' documentary footage. I suggest watching this first, then listen to the CD in the dark with headphones all the way through. You will get goose bumps and tears.
Thank You So much for your posting and for sharing with us your comments/feelings.
From Denise's forum, most recent page:
Quote post 11:
"Oh, apparently, she has a "Recollections" mini-concert of some sort on the 23rd of Nov in HK, right?"
I'd like to hear more about this, hopefully one of you can go to this and give a report.
This is from HOCC's Asianfanatics page, in Cantonese, so I can't vouch for its relevance:
Thanks for the links.
I tried to get in there, but can only hear the first 10 seconds of each clip.
The spooling seems to take forever and then won't load up properly.
Seems like it is the press conference for releasing Denise Ho's album.
If and when I do manage to load it and listen to it, I will translate it here.
Does anyone know if there is an alternate link or alternate site that will be easier to listen to?
Thank you in advance.
Sorry, apparently copy/pasting the links doesn't work. Try going to:
and going 3/4 of the way down the page to Post #61 where it says "Recollections Interviews" with 4 links which can be clicked on directly. This works for me.
Thanks for the tip.
Yes, I can get the links and into the corresponding clips, but I had a loading or streaming problem. So may be the site was too busy on the weekend or a network congestion problem.
I will try again later on and translate it if I can listen to it.
THANKS AGAIN for posting.
