Shankar Jaikishan: Shikar (1968)


As acquisitions become rarer, new posts become less frequent. But I do have a couple left in the box, starting with a late 60s Shankar Jaikishan score; they tend to be good value. And while 'Shikar' [review] might not be in my top anything of theirs, there's a nice (poppy) vibe running through it which makes for pleasant listening.

'Shikar Karne Ko Aaye' has a bright folky feel; even before finding the YouTube clip I could have guessed it was set in the countryside. Upbeat 'Hai Mere Pass To Aa' is another opportunity for Helen to be as sexy as only she can. Asha Parekh dances seductively to the great cabaret number 'Parde Men Rahne Do'; the instrumentation and arrangement is slightly more traditional here, yet it's my favourite track on the album. I've also grown a bit of fond of 'Jabse Laagi Tose Najariya'. There's always something to be said for both Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar on the same song.

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi: Shikar Karne Ko Aaye
2. Lata Mangeshkar & Asha Bhosle: Jabse Laagi Tose Najariya
3. Asha Bhosle: Hai Mere Pass To Aa
4. Asha Bhosle & Chorus: Parde Men Rahne Do
5. Asha Bhosle: Main Albeli Pyar Jata Kar
6. Mahendra Kapoor & Krishna Kalle: Mere Sarkar Meri Aahonka Asar Dekh Liya
