Bollywood Playback - Vinyl Joblottin Ep.10

Each week on Vinyl Joblottin’ we buy a bundle of vinyl at auction (or find one in a record shop, charity shop, car boot sale, etc). The records are a slice of a collection, giving us a glimpse into a collector’s past. Then we spin each joblot into a theme for you.

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 10 here

It is very rare to see a Bollywood joblot for sale at auction so I had to take a chance on this bundle of vinyl. The records reveal the world of playback singers, who operate behind the scenes of Bollywood’s famous films. A playback singer is a singer whose singing is pre-recorded for use in films. The actors and actresses who appear on screen lip-sync to the songs for the camera, and the audience never see the actual singer. This episode introduces 7 playback singers and the films that featured their songs.

This Joblot of 6 records cost £23.84. Alban Low is your Joblotter. Part of the 'A World in London' radio series.
