anand hi anand ...

Thanks to the efforts of my friends Ashish and Aniruddha I finally received a package of RD Burman goodies in my mailbox yesterday, straight from India. The contents:

* Drohi/Palay Khan (tape)

* RD Burman: The Prince of Melody (a two-cassette compilation of BMG/CBS-owned scores from lost movies like Saweray Wali Gaadi, Anand aur Anand, Jeeva, Zameen Aasmaan, and Hum Dono (starring two Rajesh Khannas, which in case you didn't figure it out already, is much worse than two Dev Anands).

* Samundar/Zabardast (CD) {I'm still missing the add-on track aise na thukrao, which made it to the film only when Jaya Prada demanded a song for herself. Consequently, the delicious suno sitamgar never made it to the big screen}

* Jagir/Shatru (CD) {Jagir is a desi mix of westerns and the Three Musketeers. Shatru is a Rajesh Khanna as a cop vehicle}

Onward to the listening room.
