Just added a 1981 compilation LP by Various Artists titled "Bintang Polygram" - the line-up which consisted of Polygram's 1980's staple of Malay artists namely M. Nasir with the new (and rare "theme") song "Demi Kedamaian" (credited as "Nyanyian Ramai") as well "Masing-Masing" which made its first appearance on this LP. All the other songs were lifted from the individual artists' previously released LPs as far back as 1979 for Alleycats' "Penyanyi" from their LP of the same name. This is free to stream since half of the songs already made it on CDs. Enjoy!
Just added a 10-inch LP by Various Artists "Empat Bintang (Four Stars)" featuring Zaharah Agus, Jamaliah Shariff, S. Hamid & Kamsani Saat. Best songs IMHO are "Keindahan Bintang Malam", Samba Ria & Pembela Tahan Air.
Just added a 10-inch LP by Nona Asiah & Jasni from 1959 "Lambaian Pohon Kelapa (Swaying Malayan Palms)" - All songs and album sleeves contributed by Yudhie from Sarawak, Malaysia. Filed under Various Artists as there's only a single duet out of ten classic tracks.
Just added a 10-inch LP by Lena Abdullah & Laila Sani "Bintang Biru (Blue Stars)" produced by EMI Columbia under their Magic Notes label from the 1950's. All the hits are here: "Bersenda", "Penang Samba", "Tamasya Alam Pilu" (Lena); "Segenap Jantungku", "Menjelang Kasih", "Mata Keranjang" (Laila). Filed under "Various Artists" since this is not a duet LP.
Perhaps a bit late, but here's a special SG50 edition of songs celebrating Singapore "The REAL Songs of Singapore" if you will - Lagu-Lagu Melayu Lama Bertemakan Singapura (Singapore-Themed Malay Oldies). The list may grow in time.
Just added a selection of Ramadan inspired tunes - I called it "MN Ramadan Top 40" - Now.. many may not agree with the list or their individual "chart" positions but hey, it's a personal list (and also only featuring what's available to MN at the moment). You are welcome to contribute what you feel should be in the list (MN may already got it/them) but again, it's a personal thing but your suggestions will definitely be heard (literally) and considered ヅ
Just added two 10" LPs by various artists entitled "Langgam Singapura (Modern Songs of Singapore)" and "Aneka Singapura (Singapore Variety Show-Case)" both from 1956. Lot of gems in these two albums.. All of the songs were previously scattered in the old MN alphabetically under the artist names. This re-encoded better-quality versions were contributed by Khir Johari - now brought together under their original-released albums. ENJOY!
