Turntable Time Vol. 7: The Strangest Lalo Schifrin Record !

In 1979 Schifrin became one-time producer and was in an unknown way involved in this rather dull disco LP, which later even appeared on Avantz as CD.

On the CD the performers are credited as "The Lalo Schifrin Orchestra", but Schifrin himself stated that he was not involved in any composing, arranging, conducting or performing of this record. However, it says in bold letters "Production Lalo Schifrin" on the original LP, so make out of this what you like.

But the music doesn't sound like Schifrin at all (it's even worse than "Fire and Ice"), you may like it, if you are Disco Stu, but for Schifrin fans it's just to complete the collection.

Best Bollywood Song Ever !!!

I just downloaded the score to KHAL NAYAK (1993), listened to the first track "Choli Ke Peechhe" and I'm simply overwhelmed. This is one of the coolest, if not THE coolest Bollywood song I've ever heard ! If you like Bollywood, I cannot recommend it strongly enough, you will not be disappointed.

Many thanks to Musical Mushroom ( for this great upload !)
