Out of Stock
The second half of a stomping double vinyl release in the "Sounds Of Wonder!" series which features two incredible never before released Lollywood soundtracks. More indeginous compositions from the maverick M.Ashraf with vocals from the inimitable Nahid Akhtar. Limited edition 10" 500 only!
The names on the back of the records that'll keep you gambling on Ghazals and taking punts on Pakistani pulp-balladry. As an introduction, in place of R.D. Burman and Asha Bhole, we have Mr. M. Ashraf and his long-term female collaborator, Nahid Akhtar. This duo would provide Pakistan with it's Gainsbourg / Birkin or it's Morricone / Dell'Orso for over 20 years, recording squillions of cut-and-paste sonic collages and moog-fuelled desperate love / hate / chase / chill / kill / songs mixing Urdu lyrics with unexpected bursts of user friendly English language (which often elongates the running time passed the 5 minute mark) and throwing in the odd motif from a Barry White or Donna Summer hit.
