Many of the music directors of the the Golden era and the pre- golden era were competent singers as well. They sang mostly in their own films, but sometimes they also sang under the batons of other music directors. Today’s song, a qawwaali from “Samrat”(1954), is one such song, where C Ramchandra sings for Hemant Kumar. Rafi and chorus accompany C Ramchandra in this song.

For the last eight months or so, I have been scouting for some rare songs which are yet to be posted on the Blog. My first preference was to get those rare songs which have not yet made their presence in YT. During my search, I concentrated mainly of the songs of 1940s and about 50 of such songs have already made their appearances in the Blog. There are some more in my kitty of the 1940s segment, a few of which have already been uploaded on YT. But I thought I would take some pause for the 1940s and divert my attention to the rare songs of the 1950s.
For the 1950s songs, my initial experience showed that in respect of well-known playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood, Kishore Kumar, Suraiya, Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur etc, there was no need for me to find their rare songs. Almost all of their songs for which mp3 clips are available on the internet, have already been uploaded on YT. I believe that all these playback singers have their fans in YT who would ensure that almost all the songs of their idols get posted on YT. That leaves me room to search for rare songs of only the second string and other lesser known playback singers for the 1950s segment. And I like to explore songs of such category of playback singers.
