    Ok - I think Charanjit Singh produced hundreds of soundtracks anyway... not all of them can be "Ten Ragas...". Nice turban-bass-combination though.

    Hi mate ... This album is one of those close but no cigar moments... hints of brilliance but somehow Charanjit just doesn't quite deliver...

    Save your money

    Great post, amazing finds!
    I only have the Shaan, but I guess that's entry level stuff

    SHALIMAR is pretty strong. SOUL OF BOBBY is meant to be great, but i haven't got a copy so can't comment.
    I agree - Shalimar has about 3-4 decent tracks on it and Soul of Bobby is a great listen all the way through (I saw a copy on this trip - 4000 rupees so that's over 50 quid. Thought about calling Saint Jude back in the UK and then thought again when I checked the condition of the album! )

    Mostly tho' - they are 1 or 2 trackers IMHO...

    Indeed it has... Phwoar..!

    The first few times I went to India I just used to be pleased to find records, so anything and everything was a blind punt. Over time, I started to research on-line and find out what LP's were worthy of my rupees. I have over 100 albums now and so I use a wants list these days to focus on those LP's that I really want to find (I have a hopeless memory).

    There are still times for having a blind punt on an album - look at the track listing and look for instrumentals - usually called Title Music or Dance Music. I'll always take a cheap punt on those. Anything from 1965 to 1980 should be reasonable (you can go a bit later than usual with yer Bolly's) and of course, anything by the big players of the time - SD Burman, RD Burman etc - should be worthy of a punt.

    I guess you'll be wanting it for the wild and crazy Title Music instrumental. Bit too full on with the orchestra and violins, not a track you could reasonably play out. There is however a short percussion and flute piece on the flip that drops that good ol' Bollyfunk for about a minute thirty. I wouldn't go out of your way specifically to find one of these or spend proper coin...

    To elaborate further, I recently found a handful of Indian stuff, and the ghazals of Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh just blew me away
    Beautiful heartfelt music:

    IMHO it's best to know what you are looking for, although you can take a chance on most things by RD Burman up to the early 80's and come up trumps more often than not.

    SHALIMAR is pretty strong. SOUL OF BOBBY is meant to be great, but i haven't got a copy so can't comment. The 3 mentioned by Reza above are more good than bad too.. My collection is all one or two trackers really, which is daft isn't it

    track

    and Salaam Memsaab is one of the most underrated bollywood lps imo , totally wacky offbeat stuff with a lot of great humorous anglo indian dialogue in it, wild

    track

    best though , Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Shaan and Hum Kisise Kum Naheen which is without doubt in the top 5 bolly albums
