"The lingua franca of the Indian subcontinent is film music, or "filmi," a unique musical form known for its wild eclecticism. Anything from African drumming to Alpine yodeling can and will be borrowed by filmi composers and mixed with indigenous Indian elements. The 1950's through the 70's crystalized the classic filmi style, with its lavish gloriously overblown orchestrations and no-holds-barred plundering of musical worlds both real and imaginary. The folks at Globestyle collected film songs from this period on their series _Golden Voices from the Silver Screen_, emphasizing the wilder and woolier side of vintage filmi, with lots of big beats and jarring musical juztapositions. Vol. 2 features the bombastic Elvis-esque duet between Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle (the world's most recorded singer). Generous and useful liner notes, too!"
