New to our catalog of distributed titles is this collection of groovy tunes from the good blokes at Bombay Connection. Drawing from the rich musical tradition of Bollywood is this compilation of songs from an era in which nightclub scenes were featured prominently in many films. The tracks featured here reflect those varied influences. Here’s the description of the title from Bombay Connection:

“The Bollywood industry has always loved anything that draws crowds into the cinema, and in the 1950s the sexy nightclub scene was a big crowd puller in prudish India. Set in a dark club with a moody jazz or R&R band, a scarcely dressed vamp sipping whiskey and smoking cigarettes would perform sexy hip shakes that set the whole male audience on fire. These club dances contain some of the most exciting crossover music ever made, mixing sitars and tablas with jazz, beat and rock and roll.”
