Sachin Dev Burman: Ishq Par Zor Nahin (1969)

More of the same... 'Ishq Par Zor Nahin' is another S.D. Burman score where credit is due his son (and to be honest, those are my favourite of his). 'Pyar Bhari Ik Baat Chalo' is a typical Pancham track, sounding like 10 different songs in one, and that's just the intro. Asha Bhosle sighs her way in about midway... top stuff!

Sachin Dev Burman: Sharmilee (1971)

It's been ages since I've posted Sachin Dev Burman, so two of his next, both excellent. They're in fact as much Rahul Dev Burman as they are S.D. though; apparently Burman sr. wasn't very fond of the 'modern' sounds increasingly being implemented into Bollywood music, so instead he called on his son to help out when songs in such a vein were required.

Still have to post it though :-)

Kalyanji Anandji: Black Mail (1973)

So, back. At last. I'll gradually be re-uploading previous albums – in batches probably – if any of you have specific titles you want sooner rather than later, then drop me a line. (You'll notice unavailable titles have download links with strike-throughs, available ones don't).As you all know I was going to post 'Sholay' at this point - but for several reasons (last month's mess being one, the
