Just added a 10-inch LP by P. Ramlee. It was a compilation LP of his various hits mostly the studio versions of his film songs. Appropriately titled "Dupa Kenchana (Golden Treasures)".
Just added a 1967 SP by P. Ramlee & The Veterans featuring two songs "Entah Di-Mana" (from the film "Keluarga 69) and "Dendang Perantau" (2nd and more popular version).
Just added a 1955 SP "Selamat Hari Raya" by Saloma & P. Ramlee. On Side A you'll hear P. Ramlee with Pancha Irama Orchestra led by Jose Daroya crooning his everlasting original "Suara Takbir" and on Side B, Saloma with Ahmad Jaafar Orchestra cha-cha-ing with her once-banned early version of "Selamat Hari Raya" - This album initiate an early start of featured Hari Raya album/songs for the 1439H Aidil Fitri season. The festivities come early this year for MN as MN shall rest during the upcoming month of Ramadan ヅ.
Just added a 1972 EP by Saloma titled "Aslirama" with Saloma reviving her earlier recordings including one of her first - "Madah Pujangga" from 1955 - This time in full stereo glory. Produced by Kassim Masdor and arranged by P. Ramlee and Kassim Masdor. Not to be confused with the compilation LP of the same name in 1973 where two songs from this EP were also included.
Just added a 1971 EP by Saloma titled "Jangan Chemburu". All songs written by P. Ramlee. Perhaps not a single song was ever released on CD officially.
Just added a 1966 EP by Saloma with P. Ramlee Orkestra. Titled "Guitar Berbunyi / Bintang Hati", all the songs were from the film "Do-Re-Mi". Whilst not strictly distributed an Original Soundtrack EP, this was one of series of EPs from the movie. Filed under "Saloma".
Just added a 10-inch LP from 1959 by P. Ramlee titled "Rayuan Ramlee (Ramlee's Serenade) Album II". The first volume was released in 1957 (already uploaded in MN). Album cover sleeves contributed by Firdous from Singapore.
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 an album of Hari Raya (Aidil Fitri) songs from EMI released in 1973 - "Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri" is perhaps one of the most essential collection for the Hari Raya genre, containing ten of the most well-known and staple Hari Raya songs ever recorded. Tracks on Side A were specially produced for this LP, whereas the tracks on the B side were previously released in EPs/LPs of the respective artists.
Just added a 10" LP by Saloma & P. Ramlee titled "Ramlee Dan Saloma" from 1959. Contains "Tidurlah Permaisuri", "Manusia" and "Malam Bulan Di Pagar Bintang" among others as well as few rarities from Saloma. The album cover and most of the songs were contributed by Khir Johari from Singapore.
Just added a 10" LP from P. Ramlee from 1957 "Irama Pujaan P. Ramlee (Favourite Melodies by P. Ramlee)", containing ten of his well-known hits, nine of them from his movies. This is a free addition courtesy of Yudhie from Sarawak, Malaysia. ENJOY!
