Bappi Lahiri: Toote Khilone (1977)

Toote Khilone

Another pre disco-era Bappi Lahiri offering, chock-full of good tracks: 'Maana Ho Tum' is a nice, slightly Morricone-tinged lounge number, 'Kya Jane Yeh Duniya Kya Jane" (best track, arguably) has a great Lalo Schifrin type intro and a whole bunch of cool instrumental details (including one reminiscent of Sun Ra's 'Space Is The Place' - how awesome is that?!?), 'Nanha Sa Panchhi' (the happy one) is nice and dreamy, 'Doob Raha Hai Mera Dil' is a lovely Lata Mangeshkar number (with a surprising bouncy middle break), and 'Bandham Kat Gaye' is moogs and assorted weirdness.

I'm not a huge Bappi fan so I've not listened to that many of his scores - but I wouldn't be at all surprised if 'Toote Khilone' is among his very best.


Track listing:
1. Bappi Lahiri: Maana Ho Tum (Happy)
2. Kishore Kumar: Nanha Sa Panchhi (Sad)
3. Amit Kumar & Sulakshana Pandit: Kya Jane Yeh Duniya Kya Jane
4. Yesudas: Maana Ho Tum (Sad)
5. Kishore Kumar: Nanha Sa Panchhi (Happy)
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Doob Raha Hai Mera Dil
7. Bappi Lahiri: Bandhan Kat Gaye

  1. I remember Maana Ho Tum was a huge hit when this movie was released. Shekar Kapur (director of Elizabeth and Bandit Queen among others) played the lead with Shabana Azmi. He looks so young in the album cover!
    You are doing a wonderful service to all of us hindi film music fans. Thank you and wish you all the best.

  2. The Flicker page isn't loading. I'm hoping it's temporary.

  3. Temporary in the sense until I fix the misspelled (again!) URL. Which I now have.

    ps. You'd have been able to access the page from the 'gallery' link on the right though.

  4. Bandhan Kat Gaye is my favorite on the album. You have Bappi Lahiri singing and wacky intrumentals, what more can you want?! Thanks

  6. I'm not much of a Bappi fan either, but pre-disco seems like it might be good :-) Thanks!

  7. Thanks very much for sharing these rare bolly-grooves. sometimes i think that this is possibly the only "redemption" for an obsessed record collector- to share the cool rare gems with others somehow, as a dj, or as you have done here, by creating this archive.. thank you again for your generosity... big respect

  9. Hey i had a question i wanted to ask here since i couldn't find an e-mail, but i was just wondering if you recognize the music playing in the background of this clip. It's supposedly from a 70's Bollywood soundtrack but i still haven't been able to find it yet, so thanks a lot if you can check it!

  10. I've heard it, I'm pretty sure I have it... but can't for the life of me place it at the moment. Anyone?

    Who is it that's sampling it?

  11. ive heard it too it's a male and female duet.. that guitar melody is the key...

  12. PC and DJ Carlito thanks for checking it out! I've been looking around for a while now to find the original song playing in the background, it was sampled since the Charles Manson quote was added at the end. Oh and i forgot to mention last time - nice site, thanks for all the soundtracks might grab a few later!

  13. I stumbled upon your blog an hour back, and boy oh boy, am I in love or what? :D

    I renewed my acquaintance with some old favourites and am taking a trip down memory lane with all these marvellous uploads. The warmth of vinyl is something I love going back to, and these are just priceless.

    Thanks so much for the lovely uploads and I will be a regular stalker, I mean, visitor from now on. :D

  14. PC, thanks for your lovely uploads. I have been a great fan of your site for long and not a day passes without my checking it and reading all the wonderfu (and knowledgeable) comments. Thanks once again.

    Joe, the music clip provided by you has traces of Rafi-Lata duet from Upaasna (1971) - Aao Tumhen Main Pyar Sikhadoon. Music by Kalyanji-Anandji. Lyrics - Indeevar. The movie starred Feroz Khan, Mumtaz, and Sanjay Khan.

    Have uploaded the song to Sendspace and here's the link:

  15. Jilluk thanks so much for identifying the clip for me, i've been looking around a while to find the original song! I figured it was from an early 70's Bollywood soundtrack, also appreciate you uploading the track - just downloaded it now and it's a nice song! Oh and i just checked PC's blog and he actually has the Upaasna ost, think i'll check that as well :)

  16. Hi
    thanks for the all the albums you have uploaded have been a fan of you site for long time and i check it every day.keep it up.
    I have a question for you.Do you have any more pakistani LPs?
    If you do please can you upload them because it is so difficult to get hold of OST recording of pakistani songs,because over the years alot of songs got rubbish Jhankar music added on to them which looses the originality.
    thanks

  17. No, afraid not. I realize there's lots of Pakistani gold out there, but I had to put some sort of limit to my collecting so as to not go totally overboard. Plus the Pakistani one's are harder to come by.

  18. Thank you very much PC.

    Like i told you in another comment i'm fond of Bhappi Lahiri.

    Since 15 years i mix some of his songs.

    Icreate a new myspace page. A dj page. On line you can hear the mix and in the playliste the link to bhappi Lahiri go to your page.

    It's the best hommage for B L perhaps. But if you don't want , tell me and kill (i don't know the word, took up?) the link.

  19. NO, I'm not killing the link - Awesome stuff; cheers very much for linking to here :-) The 'Do You Know Kuryakin' thing sounds great... erm, any chance I could ask you for an MP3 of it? The MySpace player keeps stopping after a few minutes (say no if you don't want to though... :-))

  20. PC... you are a KING! bahut shukria!

    I've only just stumbled upon this blog a week ago and am obsessed with it. I have a few OG presses of some albums i've not seen up here, from when my parents were living in the region. I'll have to rip them and send them off to you when I can get some spare time.

    hats off to you!

  21. Thanks very much, I am enamoured of Indian music, folk, classical - pop and filmi as long as it's at least 20 years old, I like the quirkiness of this stuff as a musician and they don't seem to be making them like they used to.

    Thanks for all of this work to do this, and I await your return.

  23. Mana Ho Tum was one of Bappi's finest numbers, and never fails to remind us that there will never be another Yesudas.

  24. A beautiful soundtrack. It's not often that I like a song the first time I hear it, but Nanha Sa Panchhi knocked me out. Wonderful! Thank you so much.

  25. Superfunky tune on this great OST. Thanks!

  26. Thanks for all the great music! I've been looking all over the net for the soundtrack of the movie "Geraftaar". Would be AWESOME if anyone reading this could help me.. send me a mail at glejs@hotmail.com! :)

  27. You should look for this Bappi album calle Paapi (1977) - quite nice songs there. I have a sort of okay Vinyl rip of a few of the songs if you are interested. Songs/videos are on YouTube.
