Fans of Mumtaz now have another compelling reason to live!
I am so pleased to announce the arrival of a new Tom Daniel dvd compilation (be sure to read the attached pdf file for links to his previous dvds if you haven’t gotten hold of them yet). This is Part 1 of a three part series chronicling Mumtaz’s career, and contains 23 songs from her early years up through 1966. She truly deserves this kind of tribute to the formidable talent, charm and hard work that made her justifiably famous.
I know that Tom has been working on this in his spare time for a while now, along with our friend Ava who provides excellent subtitles for the songs (we non-Hindi-speaking fans are so grateful, Ava!). Tom explains the genesis of his and Ava’s work beautifully in the pdf file, and you will not regret downloading the dvd itself (his instructions are very easy to follow). I and many others can vouch for the fact that his usual meticulous attention to detail gives us the best quality picture and sound we can hope for, even from the miserable source materials that are too often all that’s left for us.
Tom hates it when I “gush” and my Saturday afternoon cocktail isn’t going to make itself, so I will just let you all get down to the business of acquiring this fabulous compilation.
Start with this: Mumtaz.pdf
