Nostalgic Weekend - Henry Suriya

Naomi Suriya, backed by The Boys with brother, Robert, at the helm, was undoubtedly a big hit in the mid-sixties. Just as the local charts started to be clogged with the many talents from Malaysia and Singapore, there emerged Henry Suriya, another brother of Naomi, who gave us a refreshing feel in pop music. It was the first time I heard a local doing country. The first song I heard from him was "My Last Date", a cover version made popular by Skeeter Davis and Floyd Cramer. Just like his sister, his easy, laid-back type of singing helped to endear him to many of his fans on both sides of the causeway.
