There's just one more they have from 1978 - another relatively less known / talked about film - thiripura sundari.

Starring Srikanth.

The album is also hosted by thiraippAdal here:
http://www.thiraipaadal.com/album.php?ALBID=ALBIRR00658&lang=en

Two songs were regulars on radio those days...
1. IR singing like MSV, 'Odam onRu kARRil pOna vazhi nAmum pOginROm'
2. The SJ-Jency duet, vAnaththup poongiLi

Front cover - Srikanth with some girl (JayachitrAvA?)


Rear cover - with rAsA pic, already the norm...

Starting with the year 1979 for whatever disk covers immediately available...

The famous Kamal movie that was a big hit, with songs too reverberating everywhere...famous for his special "teeth"

kalyANa rAman (AhA vandhuruchchoo...Asayil Odi vandhEn of MV)

Front cover has Kamal / Sridevi...


Back cover has the pics of IR, PA & GNR!

Now, a Rajini-Sridevi movie (directed by R C Sakthi, close friend of Kamal)...

dharma yudhdham!

That mouth-watering song, AgAya gangai - wow, what a lovely number sung by MV-SJ (and it was excellent on-screen too...Rajinikanth stylishly rolling the spectacles - terrific!)

Front cover has stills of course & back cover rAsA pic!

Once Kamal & Rajini (and Sridevi with them) are covered, we got to post a cover of an album that had IR as the main hero Smile

So, let me pick a Sudhakar film where IR did all male playback Wink

sakkaLaththi - with that 'enna pAttuppAda' & 'vAda vAttudhu' sweeties:

I may be telling this for the nth time but can't help it - a song which IR himself PUBLICLY DECLARED AS HIS FAVOURITE until that time!

mayilE mayilE un thOgai engE ('suththamAna hamsadwani rAgaththil amaindhadhu'nnu certificate vERa koduththirundhAr)...

So, the cover of kadavuL amaiththa mEdai comes next (Sivakumar hero, SPM direction):

ok, one more album cover for today.

This has that evergreen KJY number - fantastic, phenomenal + other adjectives!

Regular on SLBC those days and one simply melts listening to KJY in this number - EdhO ninaivukaL, kanavukaL manadhilE malarudhE!

One of KJY's top ten duets, without question!

agal viLakku album covers here: (probably the first Vijayakanth picture that we host in this thread)

App,
Amazing work!. cheers Brings backs lot of nostalgia looking at the covers. Looks like from the songs listed on those movies, still there are some unheard songs. Excited to listen to all them this evening (if available). Thank you App for taking time and documenting these rare covers.

Majority of them are at thiraippAdal website (with varying degree of quality, though...often with "needle sound").

If you looked closely at the 6-60 cover for tracks (which is a joint one with Priya), there's this "title music" Very Happy

This gives insight as to how much focus such musical elements started getting in the TF field, after the arrival of IR. (Unfortunately, that title music is not there in thiraippAdal website...may be the musicalaya site hosts it, need to search for that...or the movie itself may be on youtube, with the title music that was possibly so special that it found a place on the disk).

A couple of rAsA specials - actually "musicals" now!

First 'azhagE unnai ArAdhikkiREn' directed by Sridhar. nAn padam pArthadhillai but seen songs on youtube Embarassed

nAnE nAnA with that sweet guitar phrases and delectable percussion sounds was a rage among TN (despite teacharammA). Rest were very popular everywhere too!

Front cover (featuring Latha of MGR fame and a later-day-rAsA pic):




(Interestingly, this disk must have got released much later - it has a different kind of IR photo...the sAmiyAr type...also, two albums, Rajini's garjanai is featued as well)

The second musical is 'pagalil oru iravu' of I V SasiyEttan...featuring Sridevi in an "innocent" role Laughing

The disc cover must have been damaged and salvaged...and it has only two songs (the lone PJ number & the ever-green iLamai enum poongARRu)...the movie also had three more wonders : ponnAram poovAram, thAmtha dheemtha Adum uLLam pAdum kAviyam, thOttam koNda rAsAva)

The remains of the disk cover:

Lakshmi (latchumi in Thamizh) is another album that we remember today only for rAsA...in spite of the album cover showing the illustrious Sridevi.

Possibly the first duet of IR, thenna maraththula thenRaladikkudhu (definitely his first with PS) happened in this album.

Now, let's post the covers of three NT albums.

In two of these covers, one has to struggle to read the song names and credits Embarassed In the third one, it's like a treasure hunt to locate IR's pic...

First, kavarimAn - that had the sweet 'pooppOlE un punnagaiyil' (the disk also has another movie called 'paruvam oru pAdam' which I don't think was by IR...)

The second one is 'nAn vAzha vaippEn' with that sweetie 'endhan pon vaNNamE' by TMS.

It had KJY doing the 'AgAyam mElE pAthALam keezhE' for "Michael" Rajini but the album cover misses the current super *.

Also, writer pA rA recently claimed that someone had sent him the unofficial / rejected TMS version of 'ennOdu pAdungaL, nalvAzhththup pAdalkaL'...the official version is SPB's and that's on the cover!

The third one is Balaji produced 'nallathoru kudumbam'. The last of his productions that had IR doing the music.

Seeing the insignificant way IR is featured on this disk cover, one wonders whether that was the reason for IR not doing music for this production house anymore. (ladAi or feeling that he got slighted etc).

It took a change of generation for IR to work for the production house again - must be because of maru magan Mohanlal who jointly produced kAlApAni with Suresh, his b-i-l.

Anyways, here are the covers:

Well, one more cover for today...Bharathi Raja's fifth film.
(We had the covers of his first three from the musicalaya website - 16V, KPR & SR but the fourth one, pudhiya vArppukaL could not be found there.)

niRam mARAtha pookkaL - the delicious 'Ayiram malarkaLE malarungaL'...

Yahoo! I could not believe I already have this title music with me (low quality, but clear). Here you go! Hear the start and the rapid guitar strumming. The guitar, keyboard and that solo violin, takes my breath away.

Maybe he was having fever, and IR was keep bugging him to drink chicken soup (like how producers keep repeating "May" "May" that triggered Anbu nadamAdum kalaikudamE). Intolerable part of the lyrics. KavingarE KavingarE Laughing

Now, a historic album from an IRF POV:
poNNu oorukkup pudhusu!

Not just that it had that phenomenal hit 'Oram pO rukkumaNi vaNdi varudhu' which kind of started the rAsA-iconization in the TF field (despite the song getting banned from AIR broadcasting)...

It also was perhaps the first "total-dumb" movie that tasted BO success with just IR's name and songs! On top of some ridiculous story and low production values, it also had Sudhakar (with Saritha, what a combo Laughing)!

I still remember the posters that showed after a couple of weeks with advertisement caption that a "new song had been added, oru manjakkuruvi" Smile

So much was IR's "BO power" in patti-thotti of TN at that point of time!

And, songs - what lovely songs! My all-time-fav IR duet, sAmakkOzhi Ey koovudhammA with SPS! SPS also had that lovely sOlaikkuyilE solo. Add the 'unakkenaththAnE innEramA' song about which a lot had been written by plum, V_Sji and others in the hub!

Enjoy the colorful covers :




Another interesting thing about this disk cover is it displays 45 RPM predominantly. Still, it had 3 songs per each side. That means, it was not the regular 45 RPM compact sized record but should have been of the regular 33 RPM disk size (i.e. the LP record size but recorded at a faster RPM).

That's quite interesting...

Super post App!. AppadiyE namma oorukku pOna thirupthi irunthathu, looking at the covers. Well said about that "patti thotti hit" and moreover as I said earlier, those days the songs will only be a hit or blockbuster (or whatever) only after they listen in radio/TV and/or watch the movie on the screen and they like it. It will not be on the first day. Nowadays, they first buy the music without listening to it and claim it is a hit/blockbuster right on the first day. Very lame kind of approach and totally gives a false picture about the musical quality. Most of these happen only in urban areas, there is no reach to every one unlike those days, even without all these technologies, music reached every one.

Another sweet little album by IR for his first lead pair (Sujatha-Sivakumar)...

poonthaLir (my dad commented during the arrival that he happened to be in the shooting spot of this movie and watched a scene being shot - when the child goes to the door to get the recently-delivered milk bottle...milk was delivered in bottles those days, prior to the development of the polythene packets that were used to deliver milk).

All four songs are sweet numbers and regulars on IOKS radio...my top pick is, yes, 'vA pon mayilE nenjam Ekkaththil thavikkudhu' by the inimitable SPB!
