Light music - an unknown private album

Thookkam vare illa unto early morning 5 o’clock…simply switched on fm radio in my mobbie. Light music from private albums, I was so interested in listening to those deglamorise compositions. Surprisingly, the 1st song – Thyaga annai by Janaki, penned by Thamizhanban was actually composed by Raaja sir. They played a couple of songs from the same anonymous private album, Naadu athai naadu sung by ML Shrikanth based on social issues in 6/8 timing and the other song was Kullanari kootham penned by Muthukoothan and sang by Janaki amma & Malaysia Vasudevan, which is actually like gypsies were singing about the culture shock in the city based on 6/8 timing, a real “Dappankuthu” song.
No idea of this album & when could have been released, probably mid 70’s. Still, I am so glad that I got an opportunity to listen to such a private album by Raaja sir. Infact, listening to this album was like a Dream before the actual sleep *wink*
