A comparatively unsung Laxmikant Pyarelal score; I don't think 'Mere Sajana' was on anyone's radar when I first started buying Bollywood vinyl.
For me, the highlight on a Hindi soundtrack will often be the Asha Bhosle-sung (and Helen-performed on screen) nightclub number, but not so here. 'Tumhari Aankh Se Joda' is OK, and certainly nice to look at, but somewhat unremarkable. Instead it's Lata Mangeshkar's songs that stand out; 'Ye Kaun Hansa' with its lovely melody, rollicking beat and her slightly maniacal giggling being my favourite. 'Pani Ki Boond' and 'Mere Sajana Teri' are both good too, the first upbeat and playful, the second slower; trippy almost. And then there's Kishore Kumar's contribution 'Main Ne Kuchh Khoya Hai' with it's quirky rhythm and luscious instrumental details... all in all this is an excellent album.
