Rahul Dev Burman: Mr. Romeo (1973) / Humshakal (1974)

Mr. Romeo


RB Burman in Lounge, two EPs worth, both excellent. Pretty much every track on these has a cool and laidback, quintessential 70s vibe to it; pretty much all of them are great. 'Yahan Nahin Kahoongi' and 'Hey Mujhe Dil De' (from 'Mr. Romeo') and 'Dekho Mujhe Dekho' and 'Hum Tum Gum Sum' (from 'Humshakal') are my current faves... but that could change. I really wouldn't mind getting hold of full LP versions of these two soundtracks.

Track listing, Mr. Romeo:
1. Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle: Yahan Nahin Kahoongi
2. Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar: Na Soenge Na Sone Denge
3. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Bhupinder, Rahul Dev Burman & Chorus: Hey Mujhe Dil De
4. Lata Mangeshkar: Ja Re Ja Tose Na Boloongi

Track listing, Humshakal:
1. Lata Mangeshkar & Mohd. Rafi: Kahe Ko Bulaya
2. Asha Bhosle: Dekho Mujhe Dekho
3. Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar & Chorus: Hum Tum Gum Sum
4. Kishore Kumar & Chorus: Jhoomo Tum Nacho


  1. Thanks PC for the double treat..I love the songs..they are excellent.unfortunately the LPs of both the films had electronically reproduced stereo.

  2. I wouldn't mind getting hold of Mr. Romeo on dvd with subtitles :)

    Thanks, PC!

  3. excellent uploads.. its a treat seeing all these vintage vinyl in pristine condition... keep up the good work

  4. Thanks, PC. Both are real good, but I give the Mr.Romeo songs a slight edge.

  5. Great EPs PC. Been looking forward to the Mr Romeo upload. Ta.

  6. Priceless upload! I have been searching for 'ai mujhe dil de' (Mr. Romeo) and 'jhoomo tum' (Humshakal) for over a decade, because HMV never released these songs on CDs of these films. Thanks so very much.

  7. Excellent album picks, especially Mr. Romeo. Here's a You Tube link to one of the songs missing from the Mr. Romeo EP

  8. Thanks PC. These are delightful albums. I loved Na soenge and Kaheko bulaya. These two remind me of other more popular songs but I like these more.

  9. Here is another one supposedly from Mr.Romeo which is missing:
