Rahul Dev Burman: Abhilasha (1968)


A minor R.D. Burman score... but even minor R.D. Burman scores often had at least some good stuff on them. The charming 'Pyra Hua Hai Jabse' for example is more than enough for 'Abhilasha' to be a keeper. The slightly Latin-flavoured 'Wadiyan Mera Daman' is also quite nice, as are the instrumental breaks on 'Ek Janib Shamme Mahfil'.

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi: Wadiyan Mera Daman
2. Asha Bhosle: Munne Mera Aa
3. Mohd. Rafi & Manna Dey: Ek Janib Shamme Mahfil
4. Lata Mangeshkar & Kishore Kumar: Pyra Hua Hai Jabse
5. Manna Dey, Bhupendra, Maruti & Chorus: Yaron Hamara Kya
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Wadiyan Mera Daman
