”…Cast a long shadow, and the rest of the civilized world will get caught in at least part of it. Bombay Connection’s eight-volume series of music culled from Indian cinema follows a number of compilations that emphasized the exotic qualities of Bollywood filmi. The tack taken on these inaugural releases, however, hasn’t yet been fully realized by their predecessors, in that they glamorize those elements that descend directly from Western ephemera, in an examination of how they can be meshed with Indian musical traditions. These compilations seem to have been made by – and for – beat miners, record collectors, B-movie enthusiasts, dimestore novel devours, and all those who wish to get hip deep in the pulp. Incredible selections, and exhaustive, intriguing liner notes omit the last part of the story: you, and your involvement with the material therein. Here, the discs identify how Indian cinema found its own private grindhouse, peopled by jewel thieves, hippie burnouts, floozie starlets, grizzled flatfoots and lecherous scum, qualities that may have passed as a fad but still project the clarion call to margin dwellers all over the world. They shuttle us to a world too ridiculous for us to live in, and we soak it all up…” ~ by Doug Mosurock, DUSTED REVIEWS

Released: 2006
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 123 MB

Featuring 13 tracks of the best BOLLYWOOD FUNK, recorded between 1977 and 1984. After the example of Hollywood many Indian action films of the 70s and 80s were scored with great funky tunes and frantic chase funk. Bollywood being Bollywood the funk was given a strong Indian twist. The result: super funky, stunningly original funk grooves that will set any dance floor on fire. Featuring among others the steaming sexy funk of BOMBAY 405 miles and ultra rare funk gems from the Hindi safari film HABARI and the violent hippie flick SALAAM MEMSAAB. ~ Bombay Connection Records

Album: The Bombay Connection Vol. 2: Bombshell Baby Of Bombay”
Nightclub Jazz, Surf and rock & roll from Bollywood films 1959-1972

Released: 2006
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 125 MB

Featuring 12 tracks of bouncing BOLLYWOOD NIGHTCLUB music, recorded between 1959-1972. The Bollywood industry has alwayes loved anything that draws the crowds into the cinema, and allready in the early 50‘s it proved that the SEXY NIGHT CLUB SCENE was a big crowd puller in prudish India. Set in a dark club with a moody jazz or R&R band, a scarcely dressed vamp sipping whiskey and smoking cigarettes – would perform sexy hip shakes that set the whole male audience on fire. Needless to say that these CLUB DANCES contain some of the most exciting cross-over music ever made, mixing sitars and tablas with jazz, beat and rock & roll. On this album 12 tracks of the golden years night club music, including the classic GUMNAAM and LOAFER and many nuggets that we‘ve freshly dug up for you like the beatlesque sitar groover PRIYA and the infuriated bongo killer madness of KALA BAZAR. ~ Bombay Connection Records
