Just added a 1977 compilation LP of Hari Raya songs by Various Artists. Titled "Bergembira Di Hari Raya" contains the usual Hari Raya staples including two new songs (also now staples) by Sharifah Aini ("Suasana Di Hari Raya" and "Hari Yang Mulia") and a duet by Sharifah Aini & Hail Amir ("Bisikan Hati Di Hari Raya").
So far two reissues can be found in CD format, one in 1994 (Mat Jimat Series) and another in 2004. The latter version included "Takbir Raya" at the beginning and at the end of the CD as well as two additional songs not found in the 1994 reissue and the original vinyl LP. The two songs were "Dari Jauh Ku Pohon Maaf" (Sudirman) and "Cahaya Di Aidil Fitri" (Black Dog Bone).
Just added a 1970 EP by Aini Latif & Salim I. with The Wisma as the backing band. Primarily a Salim I. & The Wisma album with Aini Latif only appearing on the title track "Selamat Hari Raya", which, IMHO one of the most underrated Hari Raya gem.
Just added a 1978 LP from Halil Chik & Trio Manja (Aida Ahmad, Hamidah Ahmad & Jamalia Arshad), the seasonal favourite "Selamat Hari Raya" produced and arranged by S. Atan.
Just added a 1976 EP by "Empat Suara LIFE" (as indicated on the actual vinyl, nowhere on the sleeves) comprising of Fatimah Razak, Salamiah Hassan, Zalifah Ibrahim & M. Daud. Containing one Hari Raya song "Aidil Fitri" (also used as the album title) by the combined voices and three solo songs by the individual artists with the exception of Salamiah Hassan. Produced by M. Daud.
