Hare Rama Hare Krishna RD Burman EMI Odeon (India) MOCE 4102, 1973
Hare Rama Hare Krishna album cover

RD Burman, son of legendary Indian film composer SD Burman, was responsible for introducing Western elements into traditionally conservative Indian film music. This is one of his funkiest early 70s scores, featuring two versions of the great funk main theme (Dum Maro Dum) and the crime jazz stylings of Dance Music parts 1 and 2. Unusually, there's also a track sung in English. Other tracks are more traditional Bollywood in feel. As usual with Indian 60s and 70s film scores, the sound quality is truly awful and muddy, but that simply adds to the appeal.

Overall Rating: 3


Track listing:

Dum maro dum | I love you | Kanchi re kanchi | Ghunghroo kya bole | Dance music I | Phoolon ka taron ka | Dum maro dum | Ram ka naam badnam na karo | Phoolon ka taron ka | Dance music II |
