The year was 1979 - I remember it vividly as it was yesterday, as I consider that year to be one of the better years of my life. SRP was behind me, and SPM was even further from my mind.

Then again, dual carriage-way and just a single car and a
kapchai? It seems like eternity to me.
Sudir came up with his Perasaan album. Ahmad Nawab had by then left EMI, and there was a void in getting someone to produce his album at EMI. They turned to Ooi Eow Jin, and he didn't disappoint me although I must say that this is one of his least known albums.
Supposedly it was his last; he had graduated from UM and was at a cross-road whether to pursue a singing or legal career. Fortunately, he went to continue recording and 1980 was his best year with two best selling albums in a single year.
But that's another story.
Love this album inside out. Someone just uploaded this clip recently of his 1979 performance. Rare, I would say. Enjoy.
