Sonik Omi: Woh Main Nahin (1974)

Woh Main Nahin

Damn it, this pressing is so wonky I don't know what's happened... inexplicably there are portions of the record that sound as if they've managed to include the pressing machine's unoiled, squeaky parts onto it. Annoying, because while 'Woh Main Nahin' may be a minor soundtrack, the songs still warrant decent reproduction. So for those able to listen past the noise...

To me, Sonik Omi have always come across like RD Burman copyists, a bit. The Latin inspired cabaret elements on 'Tujhe Ek Ladki Mile Jawan' and the lounge-jazz start and easy-pop feel to the rest of 'Sanam Tu Hi Hai Tu Hi Tu Hi Hai' could easily be mistaken for something he could have done during the same period. But even if Sonik Omi's arrangements aren't particular original, they still often sound good, and the melodies are nice. At the end of the day that's what matters.

Track listing:
1. Asha Bhosle, Mohd. Rafi & Chorus: Lehnga Khisak Jayega
2. Asha Bhosle: Tujhe Ek Ladki Mile Jawan
3. Asha Bhosle & Kishore Kumar: Sanam Tu Hi Hai Tu Hi Tu Hi Hai
4. Asha Bhosle: Cheecho Cheech Ganeriyan
5. Kishore Kumar & Chorus: Chayeh Purush Ho Chahey Nari
