Just added an album by Vina Panduwinata. Her fourth and most successful album from 1986. Simply titled "Cinta", majority of the arranging duties was by Addie M.S. with few others passed on to Erwin Gutawa and Bagoes A.A. Other big name musicians included Raidy Noor, Indra Lesmana, Dodo Zakaria, Uce Haryono.
Just added a 1972 EP by Ismail Haron titled "Ismail Haron Dan Maria". When I asked, Ismail Haron personally confirmed that the "Maria" in this instance is a fictional character from the last song "Dendamku Kerana Maria" (I Did What I Did For Maria - Tony Christie's 1971 hit). EP Produced by Kassim Masdor.
Just added a 1982 Polygram LP by Rafeah Buang titled "Di Luar Jendela". Produced and arranged by Ooi Eow Jin. Popular songs are "Terkenang", "Penawar Rindu", "Hanya Kau Dan Aku" (with Eddynor Ali) and the title song.
Wishing everyone a "Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Minal 'Aidin wal-Faizin & Maaf Zahir/Lahir Batin" - The occasion will not be complete without the song from the next album in our Hari Raya collection. This is from 1966 by the group Sri Arjuna that featured "Musafir Di Aidil Fitri" for the first time. The EP also introduced the recorded voice of S. Jibeng and S. Latifah (as Latifah) for the first time. This will be the last Hari Raya album featured in MN for this year. Hopefully more to come next year, God Willing.
