This is CoCo's first very albums, released through Capital
Artist in 1994, quite a small label though, but this album does
received quite a little attention especially the song, I Am
Still Your Lover, 我依然是你的情人. Another nice song in this
albums is named Rose Garden, 玫瑰園. Due to the poor marketing
job by Capital Artist, this album hit the "Top 10 Lowest Selling
CDs", but it did reach a sales record of 130,000 copies in
Second CoCo's album, Promise Me, 答應我. Released in
December 1994 too, through Fancy Pie! The title song,
答應我, was quite a nice song but there's another song
which I prefer, Let The World Be More Beautiful, 讓世界更美麗
(Merry Christmas), a christmas song, and I love the part where
CoCo and some kids singing together!
This CD crowned CoCo as the "Outstanding New Artist Award" for Taiwan in 1994 when it made a record in sales of more than 300,000 copies, much more than her debut album!
CoCo's first ever English album, Brave Enough To Love
released in June 1995 through Fancy too. Most of the song
are not original, which simply means that producer wanted
her to sing song previously sung by others singer, including
Whitney Houston (I Will Always Love You), Mariah Carey (Hero)
and Ace Of Base (The Sign). this magnificent album push CoCo
to be the Top Selling artist to ever released an English
album, but record already been broken!
Woman Being Loved, 被愛的女人, is CoCo's third Mandarin
album, released through Fancy Pie in September 1995.
One of CoCo's greatest albums in Fancy Pie, quite a tough album to find nowadays, but it does comes in a package of 4 CDs called 全胜時代. I am not sure about the content of that pack, since that I've never seen it before!
A concert CD CoCo had in 1995 in Taiwan. The songs in
this CD include her early hits such as I am Still Your Lover,
我依然是你的情人; Rose Garden, 玫瑰園; Promise Me, 答應我,
and much more...!
Since CoCo joined Sony Music Taiwan, this is her first
album being released in 1996, A self-titled album, CoCo 李玟.
Overwhelming response was received for this album, and inevitably, it climbed to the top of the chart in many areas including Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan. Some great great songs in this album are Yesterday's Passion, 往日情; Love Me A Little Longer, 愛我久一點 and a duet with Mindy Quah (柯以敏), She Cries Before She Sleeps, 她在睡前哭泣.
CoCo was titled as the Queen of Pop with this album and it's sales passed the 400,000 mark!
An English album, CoCo's Party was recorded in the States
and CoCo had quite a few very nice ad-libs in this album!
Another Sad Love Song, formerly sung my Toni Braxton, was one of the songs in this album, having two version (Dance and Ballades), was profesionally performed by CoCo!
A compilation album released by Fancy Pie featuring
most of her early great hits! It comes in a 2CDs package
and disc 2 got a song named You Made Me Drunk, 你把我灌醉,
which was originally by David Huang (黃大偉).
This album, released in May 1997, is a really really
great great piece of art, none of the song feature you will
find that it's not nice! Trust me.., I can't be wrong about
A trio with both her sisters named My Wings, 我的翅膀 is a real nice song, especially when her sisters are in, you can even feel the warmth between her sisters and her, so nicely executed! But the title track, Sincere, 每一次想你 and Loving You Is My Freedom, 愛你是我的自由 are one the the best in this album, and the latter's MTV featuring the real sexy CoCo!
A must get album!!!!
Another compilation, Dances With The Wind, from Fancy Pie,
mostly of her English songs which includes Woman Being Loved,
CoCo's long awaited Cantonese album is now released
in December 1997 by Sony Music. I personally LOVE
the song, Longing To See You, 真想見到你. The
song, Hurting Angel, 憂傷天使 is another great great song
featured here where it reaches to our soul with it's sad
but beatiful lyrics. Careful Next Time, 下次小心, is the
title song for this album and as usual, a great piece of
work from CoCo!
With this album, one can hear that CoCo's voice do matured alot. With this album, there are real sensual and sexy photographs of CoCo and some of the CDs do come with a MTV VCD, though that the quality is not up to mark..., but the CD still managed to compromise for that!
Di Da Di 暗示, CoCo's mandarin album in January 1998!
PHEW...., another must-get album, and this is the album
when I fell so madly in love with CoCo! She's got what it
takes to cut this album, she did features some songs with
her high-octave yet powerful vocal like Hint, 暗示 and
After Winter's Gone, 過完冬季. But I like most for the
Longing To See You, 真想見到你, a mandarin version of the
one she had in her cantonese album, especially when CoCo
wrote her own lyrics with her limited education in Chinese,
Where that alone deserve something big!
Another song which worth a mention is Beautiful Bimbo, 美麗笨女人 (Obviouly not refering to CoCo!!), she portraits her voice into another "dimension", real nice song with a country-folk taste in it! Not forgetting the title song, Di Da Di, it was originally by Maria Montell, with the title of the song, As The Story Goes.
One of the very best song is this album I think, is Pet, 寵物, it's very very meaningful especially when CoCo sings it with much passion!
And CoCo gets a little "naughty" in this album, oops, should I say, knotty?
An EP, 5顏6色 Di Da Di, for the album Di Da Di 暗示.
This EP features the France '98 World Cup Tournament song,
representing Asia! Great huh?
The first 3 tracks are all Di Da Di but of different "flavours", it can get quite annoying though!
Sunny Day 好心情, is another of CoCo's mandarin album
released through Sony Music in July 1998.
Initially, this album don't sound that nice as the previous
few, but after a few times of listening to it.., I find that
it's just as good.., and my impression never changed since
then. Two songs's lyrics are written by CoCo, You Are My
Superman, 你是我的Superman and Sunny Day, and one can quite
obviously notice that there's this "burping" part in Sunny
Day, and that's the idea of CoCo.., though a little crude,
but such ideas are very fresh!
Colors, 顏色, the Asia theme song for France '98, was fetured in this 12 tracks CD too! And not forgetting the song Reflection, 顏色, which she sang for Disney Animation, Mulan as the theme song, chinese version, where she was also the Mandarin voice-over for the character, Mulan!
This is another of CoCo's EP, Take a Chance On Love,
碰碰看愛情, though that many people said that this EP is
a real disappointment, but I think that it's not that bad
really, it's a little "kiddish" for the title song, but
that shows that CoCo can sings more variety of songs,
rather than keeping to ballades and Pop music! Another
andarin song, thinking of you for 365 Days, 想你的365天,
this is quite a nice song in my perspective, but alot of
you don't agree with me I supposed, but there's an English
song, Reflection, the theme song for Disney's Animation,
Mulan, which was origianally by Christina Aguleira.
This is a 5 tracks EP with the last two being the karaoke version for 碰碰看愛情 and 好心情 respectively.
Live recording of CoCo's Concert in Taiwan, 1998 was
released in December 1998 by Sony Music, the first ever
concert's recording from this recording company!
The song, River Deep Moutain High, was dedicated for CoCo's mum who was in the audience crowd on the night of her concert, and CoCo made a real cute speech on how her mum loves this song when CoCo sings it!
Human Nature was there as the Guest appearance and they sang CoCo's song, Secretly Love You, 默默愛你, and CoCo was impressed with them too...! George Michael's Careless Whisper was also one of the songs which CoCo sang.
This 12-tracks album, Now Till Forever (今天到永遠),
simply great! For me, I think that there's no one song that
I don't like...., especially the first few, I love them!
A must-get album!
Frankly.., nothing much that I describe on this great great album! And personally I may like track 1 (再見一面), 2 (Stay With Me), 9 (你是愛我的)& 10 (我們說好). I think that they are really great great tracks.
And in this album, CoCo now do have a little more involvment in the success of album. One last thing...., get this album! In some packaging ,it comes with postcards too, but I doubt that many people will actually send them out, right? It comes in a 2-CD pack, the other disc with only a song, Complete (完整).
Another 12 tracks albums, Just No Other Way, this time.., it's
CoCo's Engish album, and what's more important is that it's a
great great album! It's the best among her English album, what
else can I say?
Her photos in these album are real sexy too, unlike her others English albums, this one really sounds ENGLISH! Some of the songs in this Just No Other way album does have some rap version which I personally don't really like..., just the rap part, of course not to pin point any artise, but it's just me that don't like rap, that's all...!
In one of the great songs, Can We Talk About It, Coco did says a sentence of chinese in it, which sounds real nice, it goes like this, 要不要聊一聊, 讓這分愛情變得更好, And her chinese when speaking does have this american accent in her, which sounds really enthralling! Phew...! And my personal favourites are Track 2, 6, 7 and 11; which are JUST NO OTHER WAY, WHEREVER YOU GO, I WILL BE YOUR FRIEND and CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT respectively!
