This is one CD I could not pass up ... I already have two CDs where Lata Mangeshkar's voice is the most beautiful and spirited, therefore I had an idea I would be very pleased. Pleased? I am ecstatically happy!!! The incomparable voice, the rhythms, the instruments, the variety of films (1949, 1952, 1960s, at least one from 1970, several from the 1980s, and some from the 1990s), the tabla beat ... I could not ask more from any CD. My heartfelt thanks go out to Ken Hunt who selected the tracks. Additionally, this CD has the most extensive and informative liner notes I have seen in a long time. I can not find enough right words to praise the notes and musical selections on this CD.
REVIEW OF SELECTED CONTENTS:
Track #2 has a devotional theme. It is a magnificent way to begin any CD but especially with the poignant emotional voice of Lata Mangeshkar. It is in the "bhajan" style, which is a devotional hymn. It has a nice lyrical quality that hints at something exciting ... most likely the bright future of this very popular and talented Bollywood legend.
Track # 4 "Sare Shaher Mein" begins with a santoor which I am told is considered an "instrument of romance". There are fantastic clarinet-like or other wind instrument musical passages that sound like the Hungarian tarogato. There are hints of the Meditarranean with bouzouki-like improvisational sections and an intense tabla beat which provides trance-like qualities.
Track #6 "Aye-Dil-E-Nadan" also begins with the santoor and has wonderful orchestral arrangements along with a lovely violin section ... Again the Meditarranean music comes to mind. There are sections with soft waterfall like music which turns into more intense white water rapids at an unexpected bend in the flow of this river of sound.

Lovethis disk I playit every time I'm in the car. Lata is loke an angel her voice is just beautiful. If she died it would be a humongous loss to the Bollywood sectors and India probably the world! I love Lata and her songs came well packaged with no problems highly recommended.

I heard a song by this artist on 'Something understood', a BBC Radio 4 programme which is usually rather banal and cheesy, but occasionally offers interesting musical snippets. The piece I heard seemed timeless and ethereal (maybe because I was listening at 06:00 hrs between sleep and wakefulness). The CD is rather standard Bollywood stuff, with nothing to excite me.
