Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 10 here https://www.mixcloud.com/AlbanLow/bollywood-playback-vinyl-joblottin-ep10/
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.
