Options April 22, 2015: Bappi Lahiri | Bollywood's Disco King!
We'll dance our sweet asses off to many of the hits, of course, but we'll also dig deep into the Lahiri catalog, exploring crazy experimental collaborations with Kishore Kumar (including a just-discovered track from a film that -- holy role reversal, Bappi! -- Kumar directed and wrote the music for and which Lahiri belted out) and surprisingly haunting melodies from the early 70s, to extended Hindi disco mixes from the 80s, to award-winning Telugu tongue-twisters from the 90s, to remixes and "rap" from the 2000s to today. And, if we have time, we'll hear a few things his parents recorded as well.

Immigrant Song
  7:37pm steve:

Immigrant song !
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:37pm tim abdellah:

(Or the theme song to Get Smart)
Avatar 7:39pm Flash Strap:

That Immigrant song cribbing reminds me of that one Molam track from sublime frequencies that just rips off the intro from some track off Uriah Heep's Magician's Birthday. In both cases I prefer the theft to the original
  7:41pm deewani:

Her's the visual for the Rocky song, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbequhgHH20

Immigrant Song, of course -- thanks everyone! And thanks, Deewani for the video link!

Night, Bob!
  8:07pm deewani:

M.I.A. grew up singing Jimmy from Disco Dancer for money at parties as a kid, I remember reading that in one of the interviews. I liked her new spin on it as well as her video. Her original album version is closer to the Disco Dancer version.
  8:09pm deewani:

M.I.A.'s original version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBECisSkAu4 :)

this one's amazing
  8:16pm MrFab:

Used to love checking out the Indo/Pak shops for 99 cent tapes. I'd buy Bappi cuz how can you resist titles like "I Am A Break Dancer"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Gary:

Hey, nice to see ya, Mr. Fab! You might just yet convince me to play "I am a Street Dance" -- although I think I already have "Rock Dancer" queued up soon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

Horrible quality on this Kishore-penned tune, but so, so worth hearing
  8:25pm MrFab:

Yeah, go for it! And my fave, "Everybody Dance with Me," which might still be available from Beware of the Blog.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Gary:

Whoa, Deewani, share with us!
  9:13pm deewani:

I have not scanned it! It was '86, pics of Salma Agha and Shatrughan Sinha too - dinner with the stars pre concert sort of thing, they were all there with Rajesh Khanna. Will send them to you when I get around to archving our family albums.

Wow, that's incredible. Yes, please; would love to see someday!

SNOW?!? Doug! Make it stop!

Greetings, all!

Do not be buried beneath the snow, Doug! Call forth the Old Gods to banish yonder snow. Or Albert Ayler. Does he possess anti-snow powers?
  9:22pm Doug Schulkind:

The radio announcers for the Pirates say it looks like the game is being played in a snow globe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Gary:

  9:25pm deewani:

Gary I just found a few scans but I guess I did not do Bappi at the time I did them like a decade ago. You can see his daughter though in the pic I sent of Rati Aghnihotri. (She is wearing pink and white).

One of the very first mp3s I bought off itunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Gary:

I was so thrilled when I found the soundtrack in Jackson Heights, Mr. Fab -- my hands were shaking
  9:46pm deewani:

Ahh, the high of finding a hard copy of an album you have been searching for. I MISS that! I think it was Bombay Video on Devon where I found a lot of hard to find albums in the early 90s, he used to let me dig behind the counter!
  9:47pm tim abdellah:

Love this so much! I was introduced to this song by a Gnawa musician in Marrakech years ago!
