Just added a 1973 EP by Siti Aishah & R. Ismail titled "R. Ismail dan Siti Aishah" - By right, it's an EP by R. Ismail with two duets with Siti Aishah on Side A. All the four songs are basically re-invention of traditionally re-arranged songs with the two duets on heavy radio rotation for some time.
Just added an EP by R. Ismail with John Lee Orkestra. The self-titled EP otherwise known for the popular "Cemburu" was released in 1966.
Just added a song from the flip-side of the "Gurindam Jiwa" OST EP from 1966 - "Kasih Sayang" is a ghazal tune by Rahmah Ali & R. Ismail that completes the EP. Previously only the title song "Gurindam Jiwa" was uploaded.
Just added a 1973 LP by Various Artists from EMI "Aslirama" (1973). Plenty of great traditional tunes from the likes of Sharifah Aini, Kartina Dahari, Saloma, etc.
The first two levels of "RAGA" are opened (and some of third as well):

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.
