Great, bo!

Browsing through here, one forgets that its a blog...it reads and looks like a good book, what with all the attention you give to each post.

Thanks for your passion and for all the great music!

I'd be interested to know if there were any other old recordings of Malaysian music released on LPs (and also Cambodian music, as you mentioned earlier). Malaysian music is so poorly represented, especially when compared to its over-recorded neighbour.

Yes, another good resource would be to look into what etnomusicological material was published in Europe during the sixties and seventies to cull discographic information from the various learned and scholarly articlessthat often cite the available sources. This would help us to search for material that will most likely never be reprinted!

Thank you Arvind for yuor enthusiasm and praise! It makes me very happy to see that this material gets some new listeners and also that the printed material becomes available to a more readers!

Hello Jünger Mann,

Nice to see you charting these waters. Yes the CD-folders only makes sence to me after I scanned them and magnified them. But not all LP's had this much infromation. I think today that with better knowledge all publications should be digital and there should be a metaformat for extending a publication with reference to printed material as well as webbased material. Especially when it coes to this kind of amteial I like to read as much as possible to have some small chance to understand that wich not immediately talks to my heart and that might need a litle explanation. Much ground to cover ahead and I promise you that most of the LP's slated for posting are full of information.
