VARIOUS ARTISTS Bombay The Hard Way Guns, Cars & Sitars (1999)

Bombay The Hard Way
Guns, Cars & Sitars
Psychedelic Indian Blaxpoitation

The All Music Guide best tells the story of this simple and perfect mixture of nu-beats and actual 60s/70s Indian soundtrack music – originally produced for low budget action, B-movie blaxpoitation flicks, Bollywood style. A combo of old and new that seamlessly fuses psychedelic Shaft, hip hop, 70s soul, sound bites and Munster muzak with looped hypnotics and plenty of soundtrack space. The sitar work ingeniously sets the album’s tone and the funky undercurrents give it that timeless, retro Tarantino vibe. Probably more of a cut & sample job than the review lets on, AMG still sums it up nicely, saying it showcases how the Americans and the Italians may have invented the noir and cheap thrill movie soundtrack, but the Indians took it to a whole different level.” Amazon.
