Just added a 1981 Hari Raya album from Philips, Polygram "Pemberian Di Hari Raya". Featuring everyone's favourite "Satu Hari Di Hari Raya" by M. Nasir. This is the original version, not the more "radio-friendly" 1994 re-recording for BMG. Other artists included Al-Jawaher, Janji (featuring Eddynor Ali), Ideal Sisters, Rafeah Buang, Yunizar Hussein and non-Hari Raya fillers from Alleycats, Normah Johari & Raffi Hussin.

Although "Selamat Hari Raya" appears on the front sleeve, the actual name of the album is "Senandong Hari Raya" as depicted at the back and on the spine of the LP.
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 an LP from Oslan Husein with Orkes Gema Irama. This well-known recordings of film music compiled together in 1968 into one longplay. The self-titled album sometimes known as "Album Lagu-Lagu Film" but mostly famous for its non-film tracks "Menimbang Rasa" and "Mengenang Kasih" previously released as an EP.
"Menimbang Rasa" was perhaps first released by fellow Indonesian Supenah and in 1980 was recorded by Singapore's Norma Johari in her album produced by M. Nasir.

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.
Here are some sample pages for you to have a sense of the look and feel of the contents you will get with membership. Hopefully they will whet your appetite for more and that I am successful in enticing you to join MN as members. Enjoy them ヅ
