Jagjit Singh Punjabi Hits

Jagjit Singh Punjab Hits
Featuring songs from the Latest “Diva Bale Sari Raat” and the earlier hit “Long-Da-Lishkara”
EMI: CDNF 1.40008

I’m actually quite annoyed with EMI because the title of this disc is “Jagjit Singh Punjabi Hits”. Apart from the grammatical error, we also have to contend with the fact that only 4 of the ten tracks on this disc are sung by Jagjit (though he has set the music for all ten). Of course it’s still worth buying if only for the songs from Diva bale saari raat.

Diva Bale Sari Raat

    Music: Jagjit Singh

  1. Diva Bale Sari Raat
    Singer: Jagjit Singh
    Lyric: Ranjit Rana & Hakim SuffiIf there’s a song by Jagjit that touches you as profoundly within the first 5 seconds, I haven’t heard it. This track is perfect, if only for the tone with which Jagjit begins the song.
  2. Main Teri Aa
    Singer:Chitra Singh
    Lyric: Satwant Kainth
  3. Boliyan
    Singers: Minoo Purshottan & Meghna
    Lyric: Traditional
  4. Lori
    Singer: Chitra Singh
    Lyric: Harpal TiwanaThe range of Chitra’s voice is used to good effect in this song, as usual her Punjabi songs seem to be much finer than the Urdu ghazals. Lori in particular is saturated with emotion. The music in Chitra’s voice can leave one immobile. Jagjit has used rather unorthodox musical effects in this one, sounds that are natural more than anything else. There is technical proficiency in the instruments used, but Chitra’s voice overpowers the music.
  5. Dama Dam Mast Kalandar
    Singers: Vinod Sehgal & Chorus
    Lyric: TraditionalLong-da-Lishkara Music: Jagjit & Chitra Singh
  6. Sare Pindch Puare Paye
    Singer: Jagjit Singh
    Lyric: Inderjit Hassanpuri
  7. Long-da-Lishkara
    Singers: Minoo Purshottam, Dilraj Kaur & Vinod Sehgal
    Lyric: Gurdas Mann
  8. Mein Kandyali Thor ve
    Singer: Jagjit Singh
    Lyric: Shiv Kumar Batalvi
  9. Ishq Hai Loko
    Singer: Jagjit Singh
    Lyric: Sikander Bharati
  10. Chhala
    Singer: Gurdas Mann
    Lyric: Gurdas Mann
