The History Of Indian Film Music
"The first ever authentic historic collection of Bollywood music tracing its history from its beginning in 1930 to the present. The 168 tracks feature leading vocalists including Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd. Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Hemant Kumar, Geeta Dutt, Sonu Niigaam and many, many more. The development of Indian film music is traced from being overtly classical to being influenced by jazz and rock & roll in the 1960s and new age sounds in the 1970s, thanks to the musical genius of RD Burman. Later, the 1980s and 1990s sections introduce other influences like disco and hip hop, culminating in the 2000 section where Sufi and folk begin to appear and melody once again makes a comeback. Accompanied by a hardbound book tracing the history of the music with rare pictures, this set in stellar packaging features the greatest Bollywood hits of all time, and is produced as a joint collaboration by two of the oldest media companies in the sub-continent of India; Saregama (formerly The Gramophone Company of India) and The Times of India Group (the oldest News Media Corporation in India)."
