Just added a 10-inch LP by Various Artists "Dendang Asmara Malaya (Love Songs of Malaya)". Released in 1955, "the force is strong with this one" ヅ - Plenty of evergreen hits.
Just added a 10-inch LP by Normadiah "Sumbangsih-Ku" (misspelled on the front cover as "Sumbangshi-Ku") from 1956. Featuring famous duets with Aziz Ja'afar and P. Ramlee including original versions of "Sumpah Tanda Setia", "Seloka", "Itulah Sayang" and "Joget Pinang Muda".
Just added a 1977 OST LP of the movie "Pendekar". The soundtrack was credited to Junainah M. Amin and Deddy M. Borhan with a duet by Junainah and Aziz Ja'afar. The back sleeve prominently featured Junainah M. Amin with her solo hit from the album "Kembali Kepada Ku". The sleeve photos were contributed by Khir Johari and the songs were combined contributions from Khir Johari, Zamdeka and Phiezoul.
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.

From this point onwards, new additions will be announced here as a featured blog entry. Also I've decided to open up those albums/songs in level three (see above) sourced via contributions e.g. "Rayuan Ramlee" (contributed by Khir Johari) and those that requires contributions e.g. "Lambaian Kasih" from "Gurindam Jiwa" - So the more you contribute, the more open and free MN will be ヅ.
