    Forgotten singers of yesteryears

    There have been many discussions about the well known singers and their songs have been analyzed threadbare, thanks to some of the more knowledgeable members of this forum. I searched around, but could not find any threads related to some of the less known singers like A L Raghavan, L R Anjali etc. Besides there were others like Sulamangalam Rajalakshmi, M L Vasanthakumari and A P Komala who had brief careers in filmdom. My knowledge of these people is next to nothing. May be some of our leading members like TFML will have some interesting titbits about these people.

    For starters about A L Raghavan, there is this news item in "The Hindu".

    http://www.hindu.com/fr/2011/06/24/s...2450450100.htm

    Among his well known songs is "Engirunthalum Vazhga".

    One of his lesser known songs here:

    Film: Nil Gavani Kadhali
    Song: Come Come Rosy
    Singers: A L Raghavan, L R Eswari

    Dear Isai Rasigan
    A good venture. They are not forgotten since you are one of those connoisseurs who has initiated this. They will be remembered for ever through their contributions.

    A.L. Raghavan ... A pioneer in peppy songs along with L R Easwari and another one is S.C. Krishnan.

    One of the best songs of A.L. Raghavan, composed by Mellisai Mannar T.K. Ramamurthi for his first film as a individual MD, Saadhu Mirandaal.

    A.L.Ragavan

    அன்பு இசை ரசிகரே,
    முன்பு இங்கே தொடங்கிய பல திரிகள் காணாமல் போய் விட்டன!
    அதில் , ஏ.எல்.ராகவனுக்காக நான் தொடங்கிய திரியும் ஒன்று.
    அதை பல வாறு தேடி நான் கண்டு பிடித்து விட்டேன்.
    அது இப்போது வேறு ஒரு இடத்தில் இருக்கிறது!
    இதோ அந்த திரியில் உள்ள தகவல்கள் உங்களுக்காக....

    என்றும் அன்புடன் ,
    சிவா.G

    நன்றி சிவா.

    A L Raghavan - a man with an unforgettable and unique voice. I have gone through your thread and also the older one. The "come come Rosy" song seems to have escaped everyone's attention. A nice peppy number.
