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.
