5.0 out of 5 stars Worth track#2 alone, but it's all great... July 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Indian film music may sound derivative and strange at first to western ears, but repeated listenings will reveal that it's a unique genre in and of itself. It incorporates Indian musical structures (1/4 tones, etc), western musical idioms, and sometimes Asian and African rhythms. The singing is strikingly rich and beautiful, and will have you singing along without having a clue what the words are.
This CD is notable because it includes a very famous Indian film song: "Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu" (track #2) or "My name is Chin Chin Chu." It's about as catchy as a song can be. When I meet someone from India they almost always know the song and are very surprised that I (being very non-Indian) have heard it. They always ask "How do you know that song?" I tell them that I have a CD that includes it (obviously, this one).
The songs on this CD represent some of the best of Indian film music from approximately the 1960s. The sound quality is less than perfect, but more than listenable. Since nearly all Indian films are musicals (complete with intricate accompanying dance numbers), all of these songs have been wrenched out of context (but unless you speak some of the various languages represented here, you probably won't be bothered). What you will find are interesting and singable melodies, incredible rhythms, breathtaking singing, and 21 reasons to madly dance around the room.
The CD case has a gatefold with pictures from some Indian movies, as well as a list of the movies the songs were taken from. There's not much more information, so listeners are left to themselves to find more context for this music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy at your own peril August 4, 2008
Format:Vinyl
The producers of this CD are sticking up two fingers to the listener here. Shocking audio. I could've done better with my old Bush tape recorder from the tele. In fact I think this is just what they did. The songs are lost in the screech and the squalor of this ear-shattering melee. The music would be great if only it had been treated with some respect (or any respect!)
Complete waste of my (or anyone's) money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly Disappointed August 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ok, granted these are songs from a very long time ago and were probably taken from old vinyl (78's, I can only guess), but the sound quality appears not to have been cleaned up at all. It's very much like listening down an old tin can tied to your mate's tin can about 100 yards away (remember that?).
There's some groovy tunes here but that tinny sound is like a bunch of bees in a bakelite transistor. It keeps me from truly enjoying this music. Sorry to go on about the sound quality but that is the one single factor that stops this album being something to enjoy. I suggest you check out other reproductions of this music and skip these guys (Normal Records) to find others. I've plenty of downloads of early Bollywood music which sounds incredibly rich and full so it really is possible. I feel Normal just released these willy nilly, and didn't even attempt any restoration. This makes this nothing more than a curio. Great cover, inside packaging is rather messy. No booklet. It would be nice to have the information of film dates and the artwork from those great posters. Google the film names to see the amazing artwork that went with these film.
Check out Asha Bhosle and R.D Burman for a real treat to Bollywood. A few are here but there again it's that awful sound quality (oh, there I go again!) I suggest you skip this product. I wish I had.
