NOTE: jacket has a dented/creased corner, but VINYL IS MIND & SEALED
Previously released in two separate volumes in 2011; to mark the 2015 tenth birthday of Finders Keepers, the label has brought them both together in one remastered package. Featuring tracks not available on the CD release of the same name!
Ilaiyaraaja's music is anachronistic in the best possible way: were it not for its glorious low-fidelity, one would be forgiven for thinking his psychedelic funk was recorded recently, with forty years of global groove studies under his belt" --Egon (Stones Throw, Now-Again). Ilaiyaraaja, Ilayaraja, Ilayaraaja, Isaignani, The Maestro... The undeniable prince of Kollywood cinema, India's second-largest film industry, Ilaiyaraaja is more than equal to his forward-thinking contemporaries in Bollywood and Lollywood in both productivity and experimentation. However, once you have exhausted all possible leads using his various names (and the numerous misspellings) you're faced with the unenviable task of sifting through a 34-year career spanning more than 900 film scores in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada in order to unearth some the heaviest dancefloor-friendly electronic pop to ever emerge from Southern India. This not-so-modest collection of lesser-spotted electronic Tamil pop features many tracks previously unavailable away from their original rare-as-hen's-teeth vinyl pressings. Includes the viral Kollywood/Bollywood classic "Solla Solla." Includes tracks featuring S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, Vani Jairam, S.P. Sailaja, Malaysia Vasudevan, B.S. Sasirekha, Hariram & Ramola, S. Janaki, K.J. Jesudoss, T.M. Soundararajan, and L.R. Eswari. A1 Solla Solla A2 Vaa!
