Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh - Live At Royal Albert Hall - London - S/MFPE 1009/1010 - (Condition - 85-90%) - Cover Colour Photo State - 2 LP Set

Jagjit Singh, born Jagmohan Singh (8 February 1941 – 10 October 2011), was an iconic Indian Ghazal singer, composer and musician. Known as the "Ghazal King", he gained acclaim together with his wife, another renowned Indian ghazal singer Chitra Singh in the 1970s and 1980s. Their combination album comprising music from the films, Arth and Saath Saath is the HMV's largest selling combination album of all time. Sajda (An Offering, 1991), Jagjit Singh's magnum opus double album with Lata Mangeshkar holds the same record in non-film category.He sang in numerous languages. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the government of India in 2003. In February 2014, Government of India released a postal stamp in his honour.

Singh is credited for the revival and popularity of ghazal, an Indian classical art form, by choosing poetry that was relevant to the masses and composing them in a way that laid more emphasis on the meaning of words and melody evoked by them. In terms of Indian Classical music, his style of composing and Gayaki (singing) is considered as Bol-pradhan, one that lays emphasis on words. He highlighted this in his music for films such as Prem Geet (1981), Arth and Saath Saath (1982), and TV serials Mirza Ghalib (1988) and Kahkashan (1991). Jagjit Singh is considered to be the most successful ghazal singer and composer of all time in terms of critical acclaim and commercial success. With a career spanning five decades and a repertoire comprising over 80 albums,the range and breadth of his work has been regarded as genre-defining. He is the only composer and singer to have composed and recorded songs written by former Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee – also a poet – in two albums, Nayi Disha (1999) and Samvedna (2002).

 Chitra Singh (born Shome) is a well known Indian ghazal singer. She was a regular accompanist for her second husband Jagjit Singh, the renowned ghazal singer, and never sang except in concert with him.

Chitra Shome was born in a Bengali family. She had no formal musical training, but had an abiding interest in music from a young age. She was an average student at school, and after completing her education, took on a secretarial job in Kolkata.

Within a couple of years of this, her parents succeeded in identifying a suitable young man for her to marry. This was Debo Prasad Dutta, an executive in a leading advertising agency. He hailed from a background similar to hers, and his family and educational qualifications were suitable. After meeting each other a few times over the space of a month (usually chaperoned by one or more family elders), both Chitra and Debo Prasad consented to the match and the wedding was duly celebrated in traditional style. Within a couple of years after the wedding, the couple became the parents of a daughter, Monica.

However, things began unraveling soon afterwards. Debo Prasad quit his job at the advertising agency, opened an agency of his own, and set up a small recording studio in a room of his house. He and Chitra began to have differences and their marriage came under strain. At this juncture, the struggling singer Jagjit Singh became a frequent visitor to the house. He came there because Debo Prased Dutta employed him to sing ad jingles for several products. Jagjit and Chitra came into contact frequently, and Chitra took a shine to the Punjabi Singh.
