S.D. Burman: Abhimaan (1973)


'Abhimaan', a moderately charming Burman Sr. score. The songs are quite pretty and pleasant I guess, 'Meet Na Mila Re Man Ka' probably the best one, but it's not an album I'm able to get very excited about. Hope some of you like it though.

Track listing:
1. Lata Mangeshkar & Kishore Kumar: Tere Mere Milan Ki Yeh Raina
2. Kishore Kumar: Meet Na Mila Re Man Ka
3. Lata Mangeshkar: Ab To Hai Tum Se
4. Lata Mangeshkar & Mohd. Rafi: Teri Bindiya Re
5. Lata Mangeshkar: Piya Bina Piya Bina
6. Lata Mangeshkar & Manhar: Loot Koi Man Ka Nagar
7. Lata Mangeshkar: Nadiya Kinare



    Actually I like most of the songs mainly because they are good examples of good semi-classical tunes.

    Probably my favourite tracks are Piya Bina and also Nadiya Kinare.

    Thanks for this - I have the CD but it will be interesting to hear if the vinyl is clearer than the CD!

  2. Totally awesome. I just got into Bollywood movies and this blog is great for us newbies. Again, THANKS!

  3. Thanks dude
    I love this album especially teri bindiya re... I also have this record.
    Most of the records released in 1973 were re-processed for Stereo what ever that means(Probably they did not know how to record in stero I think)Thats why when you listen to material from 1973 you get this eco effect recording
    your a gem

  4. Hi
    great work man...thanks a million this album is a classic.I agree with previous blogger there are some albums of my father that are from 1973 there does say electroncally reprocessed for stereo (Bobby,Saudagar,Zanjeer)

  5. Excellent that people are liking this one even if I'm not too keen on it myself :-)

    Yeah, the electronic reprocessing thing was something they did a bit in the late 60s/early 70s, not only in India - I suppose they figured that with everyone upgrading their hifi's to stereo, they wouldn't be able to sell mono anymore. Messed up the sound more often than not though...

    Curiously, RD Burman's 'Hum Kisise Kum Naheen' from 1977 (to be posted soon) has one side in stereo and the other in mono - very odd.

  6. ~Great work
    Thanks alot i think there is something nostalgic in listening from a record recording which is rare these days.Would it be possible for you to copy the pictures from the back of the records...

  7. Ideally I would, but doing this is time consuming enough as it is, so I've decided to leave that bit out. Sorry...

  8. Re up:

  9. thanks for reupping !

  10. Rapidshare link no longer active can you re-up please??

  11. Can anyone please re-upload the album please

  12. Still waiting for a reup for this, if anyone is kind enough to do so.

  13. Please Reupload the ALBUM, Eagerly waiting for it.

  14. I general, albums won't be reuploaded. Once they're gone, they're gone. It's the nature of things, otherwise I'd have to make this a life long project, continuously reupping everytime a link expired. Sorry.

  15. Thanks for responding and it is totally understandable. As it is you have done more than enough by putting this treasured music out here for all music lovers to get and it is appreciated beyond measure.
    However, as someone who recently came across your blog, I have been going through it picking out the music and as it so happens this and one other album (Honeymoon) are the only ones that I have found with links gone dead and was hoping any kind soul who might be reading this and may have the album to re-upload it. I also noticed that these 2 albums were not uploaded on to multiple upload sites like all your later uploads hence the shorter lifetime for the links.
    I totally understand how time consuming this is but I and as I am sure a lot of future users who come across this blog will really appreciate an active link for these albums. After all this is one of the most sought after albums ;)
