Shankar Jaikishan: Tumse Achha Kaun Hai (1969/1978)

Tumse Achha Kaun Hai

Moving backwards in time again, here's a great Shankar Jaikishan score. 'Tumse Achha Kaun Hai' [review] (1969; soundtrack first released in 1978 though) is an album of two halves - side 1 all sweetness and light, gorgeous melodies, check out 'Janam Janam Ka Saath Hai' and the delightful 'Rangat Teri Surat Si' - and full on Masala Beat when flipping the record over... if you like 'Jan Pahechan Ho' (the one from 'Ghost World'), you're gonna love Mohd. Rafi's similarly flavoured 'Kiss Kiss'. Great fun!

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi: Ganga Meri Maan Ka Naam
2. Mohd. Rafi: Janam Janam Ka Saath Hai
3. Lata Mangeshkar & Mohd. Rafi: Rangat Teri Surat Si
4. Mohd. Rafi: Kiss Kiss
5. Mohd. Rafi & Sharda: Pyar Ka Lekar Ukar Khatola
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Mujhe Kuchh Hota Hai
7. Mohd. Rafi: Tumse Achha Kaun Hai

  2. Cool about your posts :-)
    Expect Loafer in about a month or so; I'd post it sooner but it hasn't been ripped yet, haven't got time to do it at present so there's going to be a handful of albums I've already done coming first.

  5. Yep, I could only get like 275K from it; I tried redownloading it, and it told me I was already downloading a file, which I wasn't as far as I knew..

  6. Hmmm... might be some temporary sand in the easy-share machinery though... has anyone actually been able to download the whole thing? Let me know. And if not, I'll try re-uploading.

  10. This is a killer score, possibly the best you've yet posted. I've always been a big Mohd. rafi fan, so I was probably bound to love it, but there's a great mix of styles here.

  12. The albums are great but Easyshare blows hard. This was another one that only partially came through and won't open.

    Thanks PC !
