"This is an overall presentation of the many moods giving the glimpse of what you can get out of the great master of the Indian film music. If you want get the feelings mixed with sad, romantic,devotional and exhilarating moods all together you should listen to this collection. 'Beete Dinon Kee Yaad','O Duniya Ke Rakhawaale' and 'Meri Kahaani Bhulane Waale' will immerce you in sadness, 'Suhani Raat Dhal Chooki' will remind the most romantic moments of your life and the sweet pain of waiting for your loved one,'Man Tarapat Hari Darshan' is one of the best devotional numbers featuring the guru bhakti of the disciple, 'Madhuban Mein Roadhika' is one of the most exhilarating romantic numbers. Good volume to start exploring Mohammad Rafi and his golden voice."
Tip of the iceberg

"Unjustified... This is not an album which does justice to the phenomenon which was Rafi!!.... Its just not even the tip out of the entire iceberg. This great maestro was virtually the voice of India for more than three decades and has sung over more than 26000 heart rendering songs. Rafi has wielded has magic in all aspects of the art of vocal singing; from the boisterous, to the melancholic, from folk to classical, to even rock and roll( the bollywood way). This album just about manages to get a glimpse of this artiste in his ending years and showcases the numbers few of his numbers with the great music composer Naushad ."Madhuban mein radhika naache" and "O duniya ke rakhwale" are the numbers, which perhaps needs a second listening from the original soundtrack.( when the singer and the music composer were in their hey-deys)The west has heard only of the "Ravishankars' and the "Ustad Ali Akbars".Well they are geniuses in their own right;But whom does India listen to? Its never been the "Ravishankars" who have enthralled India,it has always and will always be the vocal histrionics of greats such as Rafi, Lata, Mukesh and Kishore kumar, who have been the life breath of music lovers in India, way way up more popular than Mr. Shankar and company.To quote an example- Ravishankar did give music to an unheard film 'Anuradha', which just came unnoticed ???.Many of us in India may even be unaware of it. But then since he is Ravishankar and he sells here, his music from that film must be available in shelves ( make a search in Amazon perhaps it figures out)." Anuradha" pales to compare anywhere ( is almost unheard) as compared to the exquisite songs created by musical giants like Naushad, Shankar-Jaikishen, S D Burman, O P Nayyar and Madan Mohan. It is the great musical duo of Shankar-Jaikishan that created the effervescent but hardly heard Rafi number( Jaan Pehechan ho), which was in the soundtrack of Ghostworld. Jaan.. is not amongst Rafis greatest songs, they belong to the category of "forgotten hits".There are many many more evergreen numbers of his, which are hummed by every generation of music fans in India. He has a repertoire,almost peerless.These 5 stars are for the fact that this album is of Rafi, but definitely not the best that is Rafi"
Rafi sang 10,000's of songs. Offer a bigger selection live.
