Malaysia Pop Muzik 60an - The Strollers

The Strollers is a famous Malaysian band formed in 1965. Not many people outside the country know them but, according to fans of the band, they were the most famous rock group in Malaysia from the 60s up to the 70s.

The middle 60s line-up consisted of Michael Magnus, Bill Chang, Hussein Idris, Ramli and Nand Kumar. They were famous for their originals like, Silly Joke, Do What You Gotta Do, Just As I Am. Other songs include, Bus Ride, Children, Fire, Please Don't Let Me Down, You, Maybe Tomorrow and My Girl.

A label from Spain managed to get this particular psychedelic album, Waiting Is... (image) and put the songs on a CD a few years ago. Another label from Korea had made an 11-track vinyl LP. Fans claim that the amazing album, recorded in 1973, had great musical composition, sound production and sung in perfect English with fantastic keyboard, guitar and flute accompaniment.

The group also backed a singer called Charles Tyler who came from London, England. It was a song called, Little Boy In Moscow and was recorded in 1972.
