Just added a 1964 self-titled EP by Fazidah Joned with Pancharagam EMI. Hit song "Irama Chinta" - rendition of "Melody D'Armour".
Just added a 1973 EP by Frankie Cheah, "Frankie" - Perhaps his only Malay-Language album. Containing the hit "Amalan Suci", music by Reggie Verghese and lyrics by Ismail Haron. Re-encoded to 320kbps from the original vinyl for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
Just added another 1972 EP by Rafeah Buang "Kenangan Di-Rantau Abang" containing the hit of the same name, written by Ibrahim Bachik.
Just added a 1965 EP "Selamat Hari Raya" by Fazidah Joned. Although containing only one Hari Raya song, but it's one of the most well-known and beloved Hari Raya ditty written by Kassim Masdor & Jins Shamsuddin which originated from this EP. Unfortunately, I could not salvage the song "Tudong Periuk" from the EP, so here's hoping there's a kind soul out there that will be willing to contribute.
Just added a 1973 self-titled EP by the duo, Ashik & Azam (perhaps their only release). This EP was amongst the first committed to MN during its inauguration back in 1998 and also one of my favourite EP, so I re-encoded the songs today because I was not very happy of the quality of my so-called "remastering" back then. Enjoy them!
Just added a 1958 10-Inch LP by Nona Asiah, the follow-up to her 1957 LP, "Dari Hati Nubari Asiah Vol. 2 (Asiah Sings To Warm Your Heart Vol. 2)" containing the the sad Hari Raya tune "Manusia Miskin Kaya", later made famous by Eddynor Ali in 1971. Also the duet with Aziz Ja'afar "Gurindam Ibu", later a hit for Uji & Hail in 1976.
Just added a 1957 album by Nona Asiah produced in England under the Pathé label - a subdivision of EMI. "Dari Hati Nubari Asiah (Asiah Sings To Warm Your Heart)" - This is the first of a two-part album, the second of which was released a year later in 1958 - that will be the next change in MN.
Just added a 1973 Instrumental Malay LP by Reggie Verghese (Reg Guitar) titled "Instrumental Potpourri". This album is contributed by Khir Johari from Singapore, so it's free to stream.
Just added a 1974 LP by Reggie Verghese (using the moniker "Reg Guitar") containing the well-known radio filler "Selamat Hari Raya" instrumental version of the famous Saloma's seasonal hit. Many other wonderfully arranged tunes too.
Just added a 1981 Hari Raya album from Philips, Polygram "Pemberian Di Hari Raya". Featuring everyone's favourite "Satu Hari Di Hari Raya" by M. Nasir. This is the original version, not the more "radio-friendly" 1994 re-recording for BMG. Other artists included Al-Jawaher, Janji (featuring Eddynor Ali), Ideal Sisters, Rafeah Buang, Yunizar Hussein and non-Hari Raya fillers from Alleycats, Normah Johari & Raffi Hussin.
Just added a 1980 Hari Raya LP from WEA "Aidil-Fitri Berma'af Ma'afan", combining artists from Malaysia and Singapore namely Ahmad Nawab, Azean Irdawaty, Hail Amir, Jamal Abdillah, Khadijah Ibrahim, Norazia Ali, Othman Hamzah, Sweet Charity & Uji Rashid. I've decided to leave the scripts intact, in between songs as per the original vinyl recording. Enjoy!
