Laxmikant Pyarelal: Koi Jeeta Koi Haara (1976)

Koi Jeeta Koi Haara

'Koi Jeeta Koi Haara', the last not so very good one (for now). 'Au Baba Shaadi Too' and 'Ban Gayi Baat Baton Men' are the (minor) highlights on this. I promise the next Laxmikant Pyarelal album I post will be one of their classics. Coming up shortly though, before you all bail out on me, a couple of killer Burmans and Kalyanji Anandjis. (But do let me know if you in fact enjoy these, in my opinion anyway, lesser albums.)

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar: Ham Ne Har Ek Ghalat Kaam Kiya
2. Lata Mangeshkar: Au Baba Shaadi Too
3. Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle: Aaj Ham Tum Dono Chup Rahenge
4. Mohd. Rafi: Teri Meri Baat Nahin
5. Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle: Ban Gayi Baat Baton Men


  1. Thanks again! I find there is something of value to all of these albums, even the "minor" ones. In my opinion, you undervalue "Do Raaste," which is quite dreamy, and maybe not so traditional as it first seems. A lot of it depends on the mood you're in, I guess. "Do Raaste" really works for sustaining a subdued, dreamy, almost otherworldly mood--for me, anyway! This is a fantastic blog. Can't wait for the killer Burmans and Kalyanji Anandjis! I won't be bailing!

  2. I agree with Sam, I enjoy even these "minor" releases, keep them coming :

  3. I definitely get the subdued and dreamy mood from 'Anuraag', not so much from 'Do Raaste'. Might have another listen though.
    Anyway, cool these too are finding an audience, I'm glad :-)

  4. Btw, Sam: Anyway I can get hold of (ie. buy) the New Loft CDR, as featured on your MySpace? Sounds great!

  5. Could you please re-upload the album?

  6. Thanks so much for these OSTs!!
    great music my friend...

    by the way, have you come accross a song sung by Lata called Saathi Re Saathi?? (not O Saathi Re) INCREDIBLY beautiful...
    from the movie "Kotwal Saheb"

    I have a cassette version but it's cut and very lo fi-- would love to hear the full disk

    many blessings to you
    and thanks for the wonderful music
