Nostalgic Weekend - Sharifah Aini

Sharifah Aini hit the local music scene in 1968 with her release of "Seri Dewi Malam", a traditional Malay folk song, but then her works were confined to the Malay community. Her fame started to spread a little wider when she released her first English album, "Forever and Ever" in 1977. Another six English albums followed. Here are my three favourites from this songbird.

"I Only Have Eyes For You", a classic by Billie Holiday

"Have you ever seen the rain", another classic, by Creedence Clearwater Revival
