Mohd. Rafi: Homage To The Immortal Voice (1980)

Homage To The Immortal Voice

Released shortly after Mohd. Rafi's passing in 1980, this album is more an audio documentary than a conventional collection of songs. It features a lot of narration, which I'm obviously unable to comment on (and there's no written mention of who it is supplying it), interspersed with musical extracts. Perhaps surprisingly, it's the single non-Filmi song that I find myself liking the most at the moment.

Track listing:
1. Ham To Chale Pardes (from Sargam)
    Yahan Badla Wafa Ka (from Jugnu)
    Bapuki Amar Kahani (from Bapuki Amar Kahani)
    Tere Bharose He Nandlala
    Man Tarpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj (from Baiju Bawra)
    Ab Kya Misal Doon (from Aarti)
    Chaudhvin Ka Chand (from Chaudhvin Ka Chand)
    Ham Bekhudi Men (from Kala Pani)
2. Teri Zulfon Se Judai (from Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai)
    Kahan Ja Raha Hai (from Seema)
    Teri Aankhon Ke Siva (from Chirag)
    Sau Baar Janam Lenge (from Ustadon Ke Ustad)
    O Door Ke Musafir (from Uran Khatola)
    Dekhi Zamane Ki Yaari (from Kaagaz Ke Phool)
    Yeh Zindagi Ke Mele (from Mela)
    Tum Mujhe Yun Bhula Na Paoge (from Pagla Kahin Ka)
    Ehsan Mere Dil Pe (from Gaban)


  1. great stuff PC.. Great to hear these melodies again

  2. PC bro superb share
    thanks for this RARE GEM

  3. the song Tere Bharose He Nandlala is from the Album "Tere Bharose Nandlal"

    Mohd. Rafi singing devotional songs.

    All the compositions are mind blowing.

    Thanks pc for your rare & excellent uploads.

  4. That's a posthumously released compilation though, I think the song's original appearance might have been on 'This is Mohamad Rafi' from 1962.
