VariousBombay Connection – Funk From The Bollywood Action Thrillers 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Bombay Connection (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
The incredible first volume in one of the best series we've ever seen for Bollywood film music – served up not only with great rare tracks throughout, but also a wealth of notes and images as well! As the title implies, this one's all about the funk – and tracks are pulled from a great range of Bollywood action thrillers – with grooves that mix together American cop and crime rhythms with a fair bit of Indian instrumentation on sitar and tabla! The grooves are great, and despite the later dates of the music – 1977 to 1984 – the sound here is most strongly in an early 70s mode, with plenty of gritty funk and hard-edged instrumentation – and none of the cheesier modes that were showing up in American scores by the end of the 70s. The whole thing's essential listening – and is one of the first compilations like this to really expose full details on the music and the movies in which it was featured. Titles include "Anjane Mein" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Bond 303" by RD Burman, "Habari" Sapan Jagmohan, "Kashish" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Chhailla Babu" by Charanjit Singh, "Heeron Ka Chor" by Sonik-Omi, "Dil Aur Deewaar" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Siskeyan" by Sapan-Jagmohan, "Salaam Memsaab" by RD Burman, and "Toote Khilone" by Bappi Lahiri.
