Hariprasad Chaurasia  
Eternity (EMI, India, 1985)
Very rare Indian instrumental album, not a Bollywood thing though. Eerie 80's exotic ambiant groove (yes yes) provided by Hariprasad on the flute and what might be Charanjit Singh -in disguise- on keyboards. He's not credited but it sounds like he is involved here. Totally smoky !
LP, VG+/Ex-, 200 €

Rahul Dev Burman  
Maha Chor (EMI - Odeon, India, 1977)
A classic score by R.D. Burman ! Includes some nice freaky tunes by Asha Bhosle with synthesizer, as well as a sample I sold once for the Madvillain album. Great Bollywood samples over here ! Pristine condition, never been played.

Salma Agha  
Pehla pehla pyar (EMI, India, 1984)
Not exactly a Bollywood album, but a reunion of tracks by the 80's diva. Includes "Sote sote adhi raat", a killer Indian funk tune, plus the deep and trippy "Dil ke arman ansuon men bah gaye" with sitar and nice beats.

Babla  
Instrumental Hits (Philips, India, 1977)
Wow ! I found this album during my second trip to India, more than 10 years ago, and have been stunned by the funkiness of Kalyanji & Anandji's young brother Babla. I have put the tune "Babla's Theme" on a comp in 2002 ("The Urge") because it had a James Brown / JB's feel, something that reminded "Hot Pants Road"... The rest of te LP is solid too, and it's only instrumental. Ultra hard to find, especially in good shape.
LP, VG+/Ex, 80 €
Kalyanji Anandji  
Kalicharan BGM (EMI, India, 1976)
A rare Kalyanji-Anandji's joint. The songs from the movie were released on a side of an LP and on 7", but here are the dialogues and…background music from the film ! Bollywood groove at its best, killer samples and oriental beats !
LP, VG+/Ex-, 50 €
Joe Gomes  
Journey 77 (EMI, India, 1977)
Sax and clarinet player from Goa Joe Gomez used to perform for bollywood songs but on this album he plays only instrumentals, it's arranged by Enoch Daniels and it's totally madlib-esque.

Bappi Lahiri  
Sharaabi (EMI, India, 1984)
Oh that's a killer bollywood album ! Excellent Indian funk on “Jahan mil javen chaar yaar”, sung by Kishore Kumar and the famous actor Amitabh Bachchan ! Killer breaks, wah wah guitar, and funny chants : “One O’clock in my house, there was a cat, there was a mouse”. Plus a few tunes sung by Asha Bhosle with jazzy atmosphere, samples and LOOPs ; you won't be surprised to find some beats used by Madlib on his "Beatkonducta in India". The last track on this LP is a very good instrumental (of background music) simply called “Music”. Don’t miss this incredible exotic funk album !
LP, Ex-/Ex-, 60 €

Qaidi (EMI, India, 1984)
Killer Bollywood funk for the club with two versions of the track "Bongo" with heavy percussions and breaks.
