The selection in this 3-set disc spans about 40 odd years of Hindi songs and features a range of artists like Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, etc etc. The selection of the songs give us a good sample of Hindi songs, but whoever produced this album forgot to add some all time favorite songs from Shammi Kapoor's film "Tesri Manzil," the song "Monica" from Caravan or any of the numbers from "Aradhana."
I am not sure how they came up the title "Beginner's Guide to Bollywood," by omitting some "must-have" songs, but if you overlook this oversight the selection of songs is a pretty good one.
If you are the least bit adventurous and open minded when it comes to music, when you are prepared to try to sing along - in Hindi!, then by any means, buy this compilation.
It opened up a whole new world for me.
