I'm uploading 2-3 famous songs which most music-lovers are familiar with and the original (and lesser known) song that inspired them. The audio of the extremely rare originals is quite good even if the bit rate is low.

Please note, there is no knowing how old some original tunes are. The original song that I attach may very well be inspired by an original dating back to the 19th century. Credit is certainly due to the later composer for the re-packaging and presentation of the song.

For nearly everyone Mohe Panghat Pe Nandlal equals Mughal e Azam as rendered by Lata. I attach below at 192 kbps mp3 the Mughal e Azam song as well as the original Indubala version of the 1920s. Indubala, now forgotten was a great name of the 1920s and was trained by Gauhar Jaan.




Enjoy! And members having similar examples are welcome to share them here.

Kind Regards
Faraaj

Faraaj ji

As per the HF rules, any file with bitrate less than 96 KBPS can not be posted on HF. One can upload it on the external file sharing server and give a link here.

Just FYI. I do not want an avid music lover like you to get into trouble with the rules and regulations.

One of my favourite Asha and SD Burman songs is Ab Ke Baras Bhejo Bhaiyo Ko Babul from Bandini (1963) which is uploaded at 155 kbps mp3. I'm also uploading the snippet I have of an earlier song Amuwa Tale Phir Se sung by Rajkumari and Prem Adeeb over twenty years earlier. Anyone having the full song or entire album of Chudiyan (1942) is requested to upload them on another post.

I understand and respect the 96-192 kbps rule. It is a sensible rule for defining a reasonable quality range for available songs.

I will not upload any available song at a lesser or higher bit-rate. But if there is a song that is simply not available, I would like to add it in the topic itself for the ease of members instead of uploading it elsewhere.

I also don't want to defeat the spirit of the rule by re-encoding at a higher bit-rate and spoiling the audio quality. I sure the Admin are reasonable people and fellow music lovers who will understand but if they warn me, I'll certainly remove an offending song immediately.

So, if you're interested in the song please download it quickly just to be on the safe side! wink.gif

Arey..kya senior ..omggg..I never thought about it this way... laugh.gif

I was just being a well-wisher..Some time back the admin was very strict on any post with less bit-rate songs..I know and understand what Faraaj ji is saying. When a song is NOT available..even 16 KBPS should be good enough..

smile.gif

BTW, before joining HF, I did not even know what bit-rate means. LOL, so no worries

Faraaj ji, you are doing a great effort on many of the so far less-travelled paths.

Cheers
Parag

Thats the most important thing - downloading and enjoying the songs.....the rest is just fun and games between friends. I hope you didn't miss the Ab Ke Baras and Amuwa Tale upload which I added in between.

Vishnupant Pagnis (1892-1943) was another pre-sound legend and stage actor who gave some very famous performances playing a female. Here are his 1920s 160 kbps Bande Mataram and the rousing Hemant Kumar version from Anand Math (1952) at 192 kbps. (No controversies on this posting laugh.gif )
