Just added an EP by A. Kadir from 1975 - "Putera Kodok", possibly his last EP. The awkward (some say ugly) title and album cover aside, the usual premises of martial art "Kung Fu Kembali" and food item "Kelapa" were the main attractions ヅ. Arranged by S. Atan.
Just added another 1975 EP by Kadir (A. Kadir) "Pahlawan Tinju (Mohammad Ali)" - a direct take from the original "Black Superman (Muhammad Ali)" by Johnny Wakelin & The Kinshasa Band (1974).

Just added a 1975 EP by A. Kadir (album credited as Kadir & The Breakthru'). An act famous for including titles about both food/fruit item and martial arts form in every EP.
