"Dear Carl,

Your posting on Les Fentonnes on your blog is very interesting.

The lead vocalist appeared on the film Playboy (1967) is the late A. Karim Jais. Prior to their appearance on the film, Karim had also cut a few EPs with the said band in June 1966, and among the hits include Bahagia Menjelma , Julaida and Si-Dara Jelita. Karim did a remake of his songs in a compilation abum 30 years later, but this time it was done with ZZ'Exprezz, a Singaporean band who make its recordings using the original 60s equipment. Prior to his death, Karim used to work as a manager for the Singapore’s famous Satay House.

Besides Karim, the late M. Osman also used to record with Les Fentonnes for his songs Kaseh Berduka and Mawarku Pergi. The only female vocalist for Les Fentonnes was Fatimah H.S.

Les Fentonnes also recorded as themselves, where the lead guitarist Manaf Ahmad (a.k.a. A. Manaf) sang their famous number Di-Sa’at Bahagia.

You can check these songs on YouTube. Enjoy the music!

Warmest regards,
Ghaz, KL"
