Beautiful oldie that most of you must be familiar with. Talat Mehmood was my first favorite singer when I restarted listening songs carefully while I had just finished school and entered college. Those were C-60 Tape days and what a craze many of us must have gone through. Years later I came across a site where Talat Mehmood's son Khalid Mehmood began sharing samples of his father's songs digitized for the first time on most latest audio equipment in a studio somewhere in New York and began charging for each download. I think that was around 2004 0r 2005. I too bought a few songs to see what did I miss in the recordings that I had on tapes. Honestly I did not enjoy any of his digital conversions, be it for the quality, speed or even slight variation in pitch/formant . I realized what I was used to listening on tapes had already embossed or etched enough impression in my head that I was not willing to accept any change to the songs I dearly loved and enjoyed listening again and again.

Also this was a track that I created with the help of Praveen, one Dr. Saxena from eSnips days who removed vocals from the cover of Talat Mehmood's own singing for a live recording. That was a time when removing vocals was a challenge in itself but final mixing all pieces into one legible track was what I used to enjoy very much. Presenting that lovely song for you all to listen and I hope you enjoy it as well.
