Album Review

Ilaiyaraaja : Solla Solla [coll] – [Finders Keepers]

cinder   9/28/2011   CD, International

Another badass release from the B-Music label, known for kitsch, kooky and fun. This fits right along with all the various types of pyschedelic international compilations out there (Thai Beat, Singapore A Go Go, etc), but this is of course, with a Bollywood flair. Named Kollywood ??? for the Tamil-language film capital Kodambakkam in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Totally danceable, twist-and-pony inducing fun times. These tunes come from the late 70s and early 80s, so you definetely get some of that cops-chasing-bad-guy type of soundtrack music. Horns, piano, keys, drums and lots of psych guitar & bass. Both male and female singers. Killer car chases, and heavily sequined babes waiting to fawn over the hero. A little bit of English here and there, mostly in “talking” sequences. A definite fun, upbeat time.
