Anyone know any Chinese people?

Postby Jim of Seattle » Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:43 pm

Hi all,

For an upcoming album I've recorded a song which uses some spoken Chinese recordings. Before the album is released, I'd like to get this audio translated, out of curiosty and also in case (in hopes) something offesnive or inflammatory is being said. So... does anyone know anyone who could listen to this song and translate the Chinese for me? I think it's Mandarin. It's from a record called "Quoatations from Chairman Mao Set to Music" which I bought from a yard sale in Hong Kong 25 years ago. I treasure it.
Is there any reason you haven't bought my album yet? "We Are All Famous", on iTunes, CD Baby, and Green Monkey Records. Also available in unlimited edition "free" version:
Yes! I want to hear Jim's album without paying for it!

I can't make any guarantees but I might be able to help, if you send me a link to the recording. If you don't have my email just send me a PM.

Wow, that is a pretty sweet find. For some reason early communists interest me, not necessarily the people, but the agrandizing propaganda. I found a little white rubber bust of Mao at an antique shop that was made to look like a marble statue. Unfortunately, I am unable to help you with your translation.

Mo is Chinese and lives there. He's on a plane right now, though. | songfights | covers

Mandarin, I assume? Crash speaks Cantonese...
