Just added a 12” vinyl LP by Saloma & P. Ramlee from 1960. A compilation album, “Suara Emas Dari Malaya (Golden Voices From Malaya)” featured P. Ramlee on Side 1 and Saloma on Side 2. However, Saloma made a brief appearance at the top of track A6 “Tudung Periuk”. There’s two known versions of this LP, the one highlighted here was for local consumption by EMI Columbia and another for the EMI Capitol series “Capitol of the World” for US and International distributions. That edition was retitled “Malaya - Ramlee and Saloma Sing Popular Music of the Far East”.
