A comprehensive anthology on 26 Indian composers emeritus. This book features detailed sketches, career graphs and photographs of composers like SD Burman, C Ramchandra, Shankar Jaikishan, Madan Mohan and OP Nayyar. A chapter each on 26 composers - and notes about 54 more - makes this a very comprehensive volume. Many chapters have interesting anecdotes, for example, the story of how composer Raichand Boral discovered KL Saigal in Kolkata. In the city's central Esplanade area, Boral spotted a man humming a tune. That tune stayed with Boral all day and much to his surprise, when he went home that evening, he found that very man - KL Saigal, who had come from Jalandhar - waiting to meet him. Other anecdotes reveal information like the fact that the first woman composer of the Hindi film world was Khurshed Manchersher Minocher-Homji, better known as Saraswati Devi. She trained under Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande, whose Lucknowbased Marris College of Music produced successful composers like Roshan and SN Tripathi. An attractive feature of the book is the photographs. Many of these have appeared elsewhere - in Mandar Bichhu's book on Lata Mangeshkar, for instance - but there are some posters and film stills that are a real bonus. This book is a heavy, yet handy readyreckoner on old Hindi film music It showcases the life, times and contributions of some of the greatest music directors of Hindi cinema in India. Containing rare and unseen photographs, it is a collection of anecdotes, details of songs and the musical craftsmanship based on which the songs were recorded and the circumstances under which they were created. Written with a sensitivity and passion, it highlights the memories of Indian melody over a period of six decades. It features many stalwarts including Anil Biswas, Vasant Desai, Master Ghulam Haidar, Naushad Ali, S. D. Burman, Chitragupt, Roshan, Khayyam and O. P. Nayyar and R. Burman among others.
