S.D. Burman: Anuraag (1972)


Another one where the cover had me fooled; wasn't expecting much of this. Silly of course, because S.D. Burman (R.D.'s father) had a number of great scores to his credit, mostly traditional sounding, but a lot of them really lovely. 'Anuraag' is one of those. Check out the three Lata Mangeshkar tracks, 'Mera Raja Beta Boojhe Ek Paheli' in particular which is very pretty.

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi & Lata Mangeshkar: Tere Nainon Ke Main Deep Jalaoonga
2. Kishore Kumar: Ram Kare Babua
3. Lata Mangeshkar: Neend Churayi Chain Churaye
4. Lata Mangeshkar: Sun Ri Pawan Pawan Purabaiya
5. Lata Mangeshkar: Mera Raja Beta Boojhe Ek Paheli
6. Title Music


  1. This is one UNIQUE blog, Do you have scans of the backs of these LP's, if so would you consider sharing them.
    I think it would really complete the package, I usually burn my mp3's onto cd and put them in clear wallets with artwork so they look like "little LP's", sad I know but I like the nostalgia thing:)


  2. Which I in fact totally buy into... problem is I only have an A4 scanner, meaning doing the covers is a bit time consuming, what with stitching the parts together and all... so for now I probably won't do the backs. (They're not that exciting anyway). Sorry...

  3. Superb! About time someone set up a blog like this. Much respect!

  4. Anuraag was played all the time at my parents house! My mom sang one of the songs as a lullaby to my little brother... I need to find a copy of this!

  5. pc,

    It's a shame about the backs :(
    If you do scan them at some point but don't have time to re-assemble them I could have a go for you.

    Let me know, This is the most original of all the music blogs I've bookmarked, great stuff.

    Are you actually from Norway, or do you just live there?

    It's the LAST place I expected to find a source for these recordings.

    Keep them coming :)

  6. Yup, actually from Norway. Not many of these I've acquired here though...

  7. thanks again!
    great job!!
