I've got no idea who these guys are, can't find any info about them but this is a nice album, Indonesian pop songs ala The Mercy's, A beautiful Kerontjong tune, swinging Santana-esque soul, pretty good stuff!
SURATMI, also known as RATMI BOMBER B29 was born in 1932 and died in 1977. She fought in the war of independence as a member of the army with the rank of sergeant and she is a recognized hero of Indonesia. After the war of independence she became an actress playing in many movies and a singer. Here is an album from her, beautiful traditional Javanese gamelan music:
Very, very nice album this one. EUIS KOMARIAH and AGUS SJARIF singing and IWAN SETIAWAN leading the BAND ELECTRICA playing some very nice sometimes pretty freaky rock n roll/garage. Most of the compositions by KOSAMAN DJAJA....
Now, on this blog there are plenty albums that are rare, there are even plenty of albums that are super rare on this blog but this album might just be THE rarest album on this blog!!! This is a test pressing and as far as I know, and as far as the guy who sold it to me (and he has a vast knowledge concerning these matters) this record was never released. There's no way of knowing how many of these were made, probably no more than just a handful and I'm very VERY happy that my friend was willing to sell this one to me. The only thing that is sure is that this was made around the late 60's... There's some damage, specially on the B-side at the beginning but overal it's in an ok state, a fantastic album by the great KOSAMAN DJAJA with his BAND PARAHIANGAN playing their usual freaky garage/rock n roll with the great EUIS KOMARIAH and the great TATI SALEH singing.... I'm very proud that I can share this one with you and I hope it will be enjoyed by many!!!!
