namastE!

Some time ago there were a couple of threads on G and jikki. This
post is a follow up to those discussions.  I recently came across
a HMV CD titled "Duets of Ghantasala & Jikki from Telugu Films."
The jacket also has a telugu title at the bottom that reads:
_virisindi vindaamayi_ (sic!).  I think this is a bungled attempt
at reproducing "virisindi vintahaayi" the pallavi of the penultimate
song in the CD. Any way, the songs are beautiful and nostalgic and
the recording quality only so so.  Here are further details:

(title, film, lyricist, MD)

1.  raave raadhaa (Saantinivaasam, samudraala Jr., ghanTasaala)
2.  tEli tEli (veerakankaNam, aarudra, susarla)
3.  ee naaTi rEyi (kunkuma rEkha, kosaraaju, maasTar vENu)
4.  kam kam kam (Saantinivaasam, samudraala Jr., ghanTasaala)
5.  raavE raavE (vaarakanakaNam, aarudra, susarla)
6.  kalise nelaraaju (anaarkali, samudraala Sr.(?), aadinaaraayaNaraavu)
7.  teerenu kOrika (kunkuma rEkha, kosaraaju, maastar vENu)
8.  raajasEkharaa (anaarkali, samudraala Sr., aadinaaraayaNaraavu)
9.  chilakaa gOrinka (chenchulakshmi, aarudra, saaloori)
10. idiyE haayi (rOjulu maaraayi, taapee, maasTar vENU)
11. O dEvadaa (dEvadaasu, samudraala Sr., C.R. subburaaman)
12. chiguraakulalO (donga raamuDu, samudraala, pendyaala)
13. cheTTulekkagalavaa (chenchulakshmi, aarudra, saaloori)
14. Tounu pakkakeLLodduraa (tODikODaLLu, kosaraaju, maastar vENu)
15. virisindi vinta haayi (baalanaagamma, samudraala Jr., T.V. raaju)
16. haayi haayigaa aamani (sivarNasundari, samudraala Sr.,
aadinaaraayaNaraavu)

For various reasons I haven't been an active participant on this group
in recent times and sincerely hope that the information about this CD
is not redundant.
