S.D. Burman: Barood (1975)


Remaining in Paris, on what I think is one of SD Burman's last scores. I might have bought 'Barood' in part due to the packaging; a lovely multifold cover (reminiscent of, if not quite as elaborate as the original pressing of 'Shalimar') and custom inner-sleeve. The latter features the press shot of Shoma Anand used in the current blog header btw. I don't find the music very exciting though... it's sort of nice and pretty, but a bit too bland for my liking. The one exception is 'I Love You, You Love Me', which has a cool Euro-bossa thing going; I quite like that.

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar: Matlab Jo Samjhe
2. Lata Mangeshkar: Ek Dushman Pe Pyar Aya Hai
3. Mukesh & Shivangi Kolhapure: Tu Shaitano Ka Sardar Hai
4. Title Music
5. Lata Mangeshkar: Samandar Samandar
6. Asha Bhosle: I Love You, You Love Me
7. Kishore Kumar: Matlab Jo Samjhe
8. Theme Music


  1. Hey PC!
    This is absolutely lovely! Dada Burman in a contemporary avtaar!
    Thanx once again!!!!!

  2. Love "Ek Dushman Pe Pyar Aya Hai"! It was one of the first Indian film songs that I ever heard years ago. Thanks!

  3. On a roll at the moment
    Many thanks PC

  4. It's a hit after hit. Thank you so much ! :)

    Harshi :)

  5. I have been visiting your website for a while now and I have to mention how impressed I am by the whole blog.

    I have a question for you. I am very interested in knowing how do you go about scanning these LP covers. Usually the LPs are not in the best of conditions. But your scans give a feeling that they are brand new. Do you use any softwares or anything?

  6. Glad you like. I scan the covers to Photoshop, were I sometimes airbrush out creases and other blemishes, but otherwise they're as is. I tend not to buy records with shoddy looking covers.

  7. Wow!! Thats awesome.. I think then its about time I learn how to use Photoshop :)

    You are doing a great job. please keep it up

  8. It is nice to see this post. It brings back memories. Indeed it was the debut movie of Shoma Anand. "Matlab jo samjhe " was one song from this movie that was the most popular song from this movie.

  9. This one is so HAUNTINGLY ADDICTIVE ! I actually cannot stop listening to it for a single day. I had never heard the songs or watched the movie before. I returned to write another comment on this one. I also watched the movie today and everything just fits together so marvelously ! Thank you PC. You have introduced me to numerous rarities which I never knew even existed! Thank you !

    Harshi :)
