Rahul Dev Burman: Ghar (1977)


A lovely R.D. Burman score... highlighted, for me anyway, by the sublime bossa-tinged 'Tere Bina Jiya' and the dreamy (trippy almost) 'Aaj Kal Paon', both sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Can't really knock the remaining tracks either, it's an excellent album throughout. At a time when Burman was putting out one madcap, funked-up extravaganza after another, 'Ghar' was a decidedly different, much more subdued affair.

Track listing:
1. Lata Mangeshkar: Tere Bina Jiya
2. Lata Mangeshkar: Aaj Kal Paon
3. Kishore Kumar: Phir Wohi Raat Hai
4. Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar: Aap Ki Ankhon
5. Asha Bhosle & Mohd. Rafi: Botal Se Ek Baat

  3. Hi
    Just to mention thanks for this album it used to be one of my fathers favourites and was nice to
    see the cover again.
    P.S I have lots of records but do not know how to upload them please give instructions....



  4. In order to upload an album (or any other file) you need to package the songs/contents into a single file (zip or similar), then go to one of the many free file-hosting services on the Internet (I use www.easy-share.com) and basically follow the instructions given there.

  5. Thank you so much for doing this! I'm working on a museum exhibition about Bollywood and having these going on in the background while I am working keeps me in the mood. Although it is hard to concentrate, I am too busy singing and dancing along! This is definitely a community service you are providing.
