✨✧ VariousBombay Connection – Funk From The Bollywood Action Thrillers 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Bombay Connection (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

VariousBombshell Baby Of Bombay – Bouncing Nightclub Grooves From Bollywood Films 1959 to 1972 ... CD
Bombay Connection (Netherlands), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Incredible grooves from the Indian film scene – mod little numbers that are a fair bit different than most Bollywood work that usually shows up on CD! As the title implies, the work here is more in a nightclub mode than a funky one – and the tunes are a great blend of romping rhythms, electric guitar, and quirky vocals – all wrapped together in an extremely playful way! The tunes here almost remind us a bit of some of the Japanese soundtrack work we've been stocking from the 60s – especially in the stark sounds and dramatic use of instrumentation – and the package here provides some great references for this under-discovered music, by offering up beautiful images from the films, and a wealth of helpful notes! The whole thing's tremendous – easily one of the best Bollywood sets we've ever stocked – and titles include "Kati Patang" by RD Burman, "Gumnaam" by Shankar Jakishan, "Kismat" by OP Nayyar, "Loafer" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Bluff Master" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Ek Phool Char Kante" by Shankar Jaikishan, and "Hamara Adhikar" by Chitragupta.
