DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

SUSHEELA RAMAN (ABO#315)

SUSHEELA RAMAN
TRUST IN ME
(2001-2009)

When I first heard of Susheela Raman, this was on a 2001 compilation about new discovers in pop. At that time, I wasn't in a mainstream mood at all and, even if Susheela is not Mainstream at all, I felt it sounded like. But, to my big surprise, I really enjoyed this song, Trust In Me.
Until this year, I didn't hear of her and this ladies month made me immediately think of her. Don't know why.
Anyway, I then planned to listen to her whole discography, and dropped onto 4 extraordinary good albums. Susheela sings folk-pop songs with a very simple but clever construction. Her oriental origins can be heard on several of her songs and brings joyful colors to her melancolic pop. Her last album, 33 1/3, contains number of covers that are not unseless at all, for sure.
