May take a while for some ears to take in Asha Bohsle's often high-piercing vocals, but above all, she lays down some serious trance music.
"Jaiye aap kahan jayenge" = "Where Will You Go?"
The thirty-one tracks in Asha Bhosle: The Golden Collection (1996) were "arranged by Sanjeev Kohli," according to a note on the back cover of the CD. He was a major music producer and executive at HMV (EMI India) at the time, and a strong promoter of international music. For the record, the back cover also lists RPG, and The Gramophone Company of India. The tracks here range in recording years from 1957 to 1986.
Asha Bhosle (born in 1933) and her big sister Lata Mangeshkar (born in 1929) have both recorded thousands of songs. They are widely known as "playback singers," -- that is to say, actors lip-sync their recorded vocals in movie scenes.
Thank you Asha Bhosle, Sanjeev Kohli, Lata Mangeshkar and India for these tracks. I now pass this anthology forward.
