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 from 1954 by Various Artists "Bunga Rampai Malaya (Leis from Malaya)". Well-known songs from Normadiah "Cahaya", Nona Asiah & Jasni "Gelora Cinta", Lena "Cinta Pandang Pertama", Abdul Rahman "Singapura Bandaraya" and a rare song from Salmah Ismail (Saloma) "Polynesia Mambo".

Just added a 10-inch LP by Lena Abdullah & Laila Sani "Bintang Biru (Blue Stars)" produced by EMI Columbia under their Magic Notes label from the 1950's. All the hits are here: "Bersenda", "Penang Samba", "Tamasya Alam Pilu" (Lena); "Segenap Jantungku", "Menjelang Kasih", "Mata Keranjang" (Laila). Filed under "Various Artists" since this is not a duet LP.
Just added a 10-inch LP by Salbiah (Harun), Laila (Sani) and Lena (Abdullah). The album was titled "Tiga Bidara (Three Songstresses)" with each of the singers singing on their own. This LP was pressed in Australia by EMI Columbia. Need your help to identify the actual year of recording and the album catalogue ID (starts with 33ES). Not to be mistaken by the other "Tiga Bidara (Three Charmers)" recording of 1964 by Alina (Rahman), Fatimah (Huri) and Fazidah (Joned) - which incidentally, shall be the next change in MN, InsyaAllah ヅ
Just added two 10" LPs by various artists entitled "Langgam Singapura (Modern Songs of Singapore)" and "Aneka Singapura (Singapore Variety Show-Case)" both from 1956. Lot of gems in these two albums.. All of the songs were previously scattered in the old MN alphabetically under the artist names. This re-encoded better-quality versions were contributed by Khir Johari - now brought together under their original-released albums. ENJOY!
