Soundtrack Used - LP BC 001 Bombay Connection
Beautiful 2007 2LP Laminated Gatefold Compilation With Custom Inner Sleeves. “First In What Looks To Be The Best New Series Of Its Kind Since Ethiopiques — In This Case, With A Focus On The Highlights Of Bollywood Film Music Beyond The Well-Known Superstars And Classics — Bombay Connection, Vol. 1 Is The Kind Of Informative And Lovingly Detailed Overview To Thrill The Heart Of Any Music Fiend.

Some Fusions Are Almost Obvious, Admittedly — Not Poor By Any Means, But Straightforward Where Singers Vamp Over Translations Of The Kind Of Accomplished Though Not Unique Action Soundtrack Of The Time. Others, However, Find A Truly Unique Blend. Uttam Singh's Work On "Giraffe Trapping Music," Done For The African-Set Adventure Habari, Is But One Example, Duane Eddy Guitar Lines And A Lovely Flute Melody Take The Lead Over A Brisk, Begging-To-Be-Sampled, Stutter-And-Clatter-And-Repeat Percussion Part. Charanjit Singh's "Pyar Chahiye Keh Paisa" Takes The Kitchen Sink Approach To Its Limit, Meanwhile, Dropping In Everything From Swirling Keyboard Lines To Greasy Horn Parts Straight From America In The '30s To Spindly Guitar And More Besides." – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
