Sonik Omi: Beti (1970)


This one doesn't excite me much either. As has been demonstrated earlier, Sonik Omi were capable of some ace stuff; 'Beti' however I think is a run-of-the-mill job. (And the pressing's rubbish.)

There are bits in it that are OK; 'Mere Mehboob' is quite a nice song, and the happy version of 'Aaja Nindiya Suhani' has a, well, happy feel to it (the other version sounds more melancholy than sad)... but that's basically it for me. I just relistened to it, and my mind kept wandering.

(On the other hand, it is Monday morning...)

1. Mohd. Rafi: Mere Mehboob
2. Asha Bhosle & Usha Mangeshkar: Lahenga Manga De Mere Babu
