Mehdi Hassan Collection

Did I ever tell you that I am a big big fan of Mehdi Hassan? Well, an entirely whole new post on that later…

My dad recently stumbled upon a very good site for Mehdi fans. www.mehdihassanent.com

This site has a radio & you have to click on the radio & his ghazals are played one after the other.

There is a huge collection of his ghazals. Some are repeated but the rendering is different since they are sung in different concerts and over a period of time.

There are some Mehdi Hassan ghazals sung by a few of his sons (He has five sons, eight daughters and two wives). There are some numbers from Hariharan and Suresh Wadkar sung as a tribute to Mehdi Hassan.

There are some rare recordings which even I was not aware of.

Here is another one http://www.suhanegeet.com

It needs a username and a password and you get to hear lot of songs as per the singers, music directors and also read their biographies.  There may not be  a lot of songs but then it has some rare good ones.

Try it.

  1. I think “Ranjish hi sahi” and “ab ke bichde to” would be my most favorite ghazals by him. He has a very deep voice which just touches your soul.
    And the person who wrote “Ranjish hi sahi” must be God. What thoughts!
