Thanh-Tuyen - U hoai / Em chi yeu anh 7" (Hong Hoa, K.D. so 4431/4811)
This time two charming tunes by Thanh-Tuyen. Basically the same musical formula as before.
Funny thing, by watching the waveform below, you can see how the tracks on both sides follow the same structure, so you can even call both tracks being a different variations of a same song, even though they are written by different persons ( Y-Van & Ha-Phuong). I haven't paid attention that much to waveforms before but I doubt that you can see the same similarity on many other tracks I've posted. Maybe it is some basic structure of Vietnamese popular music on which the songs are built on, just like western popular music has this repetition of verse-chorus-verse...

Various Artists - Than nu dang cua dinh 7" (Hong Hoa, K.D. so 48/4-1-60)
Some more hài kjch, comedy, frentic dialogue with musical intermezzos thrown in. I think heard a small part of Stephen Foster's composition Oh! Susanna in there (or Hei kuu-ukko as we Finns known it better).

Various Artists - Tiet-dinh-san 7" (Hong Hoa, K.D. so 221/18-1-65)
This time some ca kịch trào phúng, alias satirical theatre, with a lot of funny dialogue with complementary instrumentation and even a surprising short pop part in the beginning of side B.

Ut Bach-Lan / Thanh-Tuyen - Chieu bien khu / Nguoi yeu la linh chien 7" (Hong Hoa, K.D. so 433/4307)
Here's another one of that (quite familiar by now) lounge-trad form. Especially side A is one of my favorites.
