RAYMOND LAUCHENGCO Full Circle 80s


RAYMOND LAUCHENGCO is a PINOY singer/actor who was very famous back in the 80s and one of the original casts of the 80s PINOY ICONIC TEEN MOVIE entitled BAGETS. Recently, I had a little chit-chat with KABAYANS MON and SNOOG and this guy pops up on the discussion so here it goes I decided to feature his 80s REVIVAL ALBUM entitled "FULL CIRCLE: The Big Band Album" which was released by VIVA RECORDS last 2007. The first time I saw the CD and TRACKLIST it already caught my attention so I tried listening to it at the Record Bar's listening station and It was a very interesting album to listen to since it includes 10 great tunes from the 80s in a different blend wherein Raymond was singing with a rich orchestral backup and even became Jazzy at some time so I grabbed a copy of it for listening pleasure. Well, let's be different and cheezy for a while here on "The Doctor Is In" and travel back to time by listening to 80s and New Wave Revivals from none other done BAGETS original RAYMOND LAUCHENGCO who incidentally is also one of "The Greatest Hits of the 80s" foursome that included Randy Santiago, Louie Heredia, Gino Padilla who last year 2008 had a series of concert here in the Philippines and even in the U.S.(MEN OF THE 80s). Raymond was also a special guest on EAT BULAGA's last TRIBUTE to the LATE MASTER RAPPER FRANCIS MAGALLONA who was also one of the BAGETS casts back in the 80s. RAYMOND sang the song "FAREWELL" on the noontime variety show which is one of this famous and classic song up to this date.
The "FULL CIRCLE: The Big Band Album" is a total rework and definitely a time travel for you guys who grew up listening music from the 80s. Raymond gave credit to his wife Mia for the idea that inspired him to do this retro album which is a set of hit tunes from the 80s era and singing them big-band style. Well, It's cheezy in a way but why not try it to be different. I uploaded the entire album for you guys if you're interested. Check it out!!
