Since Penang became a UNSCO World Heritage site in 2008, there has been a considerable effort to preserve and remember the history of the well-to-do, who could afford, and often intended, to construct a legacy that would stand the test of time. The history of less wealthy Penangites tends to attract less interest, probably because what they made and consumed was more ephemeral. This book at last celebrates the life blood of a wider section of the community, popular music. Packed with anecdotes, pictures and advertisements of the time as well as detailed research and a 24 track CD, this book provides a more vibrant connection with the past than most other books written on Penang's history. 221 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page and CD track list for further details.
