Various Artists - Bollywood Nuggets LP (Akenaton/Egypt)

I wasn't going to stock this, but I bought a copy for myself and enjoyed these songs so much that I decided to bring it in and share these party packed Bollywood gems with nods to surf music, outsider electronic lullabies, psych pop, Big Bopper American '50s RnR, and kind of songs that would make members of the Cramps shimmy and shake.

They Say:

A collection of mind-blowing songs from Hindi films 1958-1984. 12 musical gems from the Bollywood vaults with a wide variety of styles thrown in the mix, from the classic to the rare, a must! An astonishing overview of the magnificent musical talents populating Bollywood films. With a predilection for movies with a strong musical backbone where songs and musical numbers play a pivotal role, the Hindi cinema boom gave birth to a strong and creative music industry where composers, musicians, musical directors, conductors, producers, singing actors, and playback singers (singers who provide vocals for the musical parts of roles played by actors or actresses) found a perfect place to develop their careers. A sample of those incredible talents is included in this compilation, the ideal point to start digging deeper into the lush garden of musical delights that is Bollywood. Featuring Mohammedd Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Geeta Dutt, Kamal Haasan, Sridevi, Kalyanji & Anandji, P. Susheela, S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Shankar & Jaikishan, and R. D. Burman.
