Tamil Films fans in tfmpage.com are discussing
about Raja's song from Annakkili till Azhagi. Mr.Manisekaran (Malaysia)
has created this thread and all music fans are participating actively
in this forum. This is a real treat for all Raja fans.
ProjectGem is a Non-profit effort by Prasantha Rao from Bangalore and other Ilaiyaraaja fans to bring rare songs to his fans. It is very difficult to get all Raja songs (Raja composed more than 800 films), so this is an excellent opportunity to get his rare gems in good quality digitally recorded Audio CDs.
Many tamil music listeners doesn't even know
something called bass guitar exist. Still why is he composing such superb bass tracks song after song. It's the same way
that god has created so many beautiful landscapes, animals, plants and flowers in this universe which most of us are
unaware of. Why did he create so many things that go unnoticed?
The answer I think is, that's the joy of creation...
