IlaiyaraajaIlectro – Euphoric Electronics & Robotic Funk (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the fuller scope of Bollywood brilliance – and at some level, Ilaiyaraaja's music here represents an 80s take on earlier Bollywood funk – sometimes a bit quirkier, due to the instrumentation – but hardly ever cold or stark at all, and very different from the kind of electronics that were brimming big on the European scene. Part of this quality really comes from the vocals – sung by singers who include KS Chitra, Malaysia Vasudevan, SP Balasubrahmanyam, Vani Jayaram, and others – often in styles that have the playful back/forth approach of Indian film lyrics. The set's a treasure through and through – with 17 mesmerizing tracks that include "Kadal Mele", "Mancha Podi", "Adi Rani", "Poo Poo Kkum", "Ilasa Sirusa", "Eswarane", "Needhi Idhu", and "Poongatre".

IlaiyaraajaSolla Solla – Maestro Ilaiyaraaja & The Electronic Pop Sound Of Kollywood 1977 to 1983 (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
A pastiche of of styles from the late 70s and early 80s Kollywood cinema scene – amazing stuff produced and arranged by Ilaiyaraaja – music that trades as much in heavy funk as it does electronic pop! Over the span of a few decades, maestro Ilaiyaraaja recorded hundreds of scores, many under different names (or differently spelled names) in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada – Southern Indian music as relentlessly danceable as boundlessly groovy as we could have imagined. We also can't imagine how arduous the task must have been for compilers Doug Shipton and Pavel Chehunov to go through such a vast catalog to put together this essential compilation, which just makes it all the more amazing! "Solla Solla" feat SP Balasubrahmaniam, "Raja Rani Jaakki" feat SP Sailaja & Maylasia Vasudevan, "Thithikkum" feat SP Sailaja & SP Balasubrahmaniam, "Sorgam Madhuvile" feat SP Balasubrahmaniam, "Disco Sound" by Hariram & Ramola, "Mayakkama" feat Vani Jairam, "Kakavu Ondru" feat S Janaki, "Aadal Paadalil" feat TM Soundararajan & LR Eseari, "Ponnana Neram" feat S Janaki and more. 16 tracks on the CD.
