MUSIC #08: CALL GIRL 1974 (HINDI EP OST)


I thought I’d up the ante a bit and post something a bit more risqué. I tried finding some info on this album but only found some pathetic references in Wikipedia and IMDb; but luckily, there is a really good review on the movie and songs by fellow blogger and friend, Greta of Memsaab Story. Check out her post and blog HERE.

After reading Greta’s blog, I wish I had the LP to this OST instead of just the EP. Luckily Shemaroo, the copyright owners of this movie, has downloaded all the music videos on YouTube, to which I have converted to MP3s. I have listed these as bonus tracks on this post and the upload. FYI, an extended play (EP) is a vinyl record (but could also be a CD or music download) which contains more music than a single (one song), but is too short to qualify as a long play (LP) record. The speed on a record player to play an EP is usually set at 45 rpm, as opposed to 331/3 for an LP.

The music for Call Girl is by Sapan Jagmohan and lyrics by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Again, I could not find much info on Sapan J except from a small article on IMDb which lists 17 movie compositions under his name, none of which I am familiar with.....maybe if I heard them????

Having said this, I quite like this album. It has a nice mixture of sentimental, funk and cabaret. Really good, I say, for a lesser known composer and movie. You be the judge.
