Disco-era Burman. As therefore can be expected, there are a million and one things going on in 'Rocky'... RD packs more sounds (and punch) into a single track than others manage during the course of an entire career.
'Aa Dekhen Jara' kicks it off with funky beats, wild percussion, sitars and a shameless steal from Jeff Wayne's 'War Of The Worlds'... a great galloping melody with all sorts of vocal details, moog stabs, horns... the works. 'Kya Yahi Pyar Hai' is more subdued, with a great intro, a lovely bossa-tinged rhythm and a few James Bond-isms thrown in; 'Dance Music' is fun, for Gopi Krishan's scat singing if nothing else; 'Hum Tumse Mile' is upbeat and poppy and has several sub-themes included... need I go on? Burman on top form, a wonderful album!
BTW, ever tried scanning an oxidized metalic embossed mirror sleeve? It's very difficult.
