Ye Mera Dil

While the Hawaiian steel guitar is the most prevalent when it comes to Bollywood covers, the “mouth organ” – or harmonica – is probably the second most common. I have seen a few records by other artists – such as Milon Gupta, Madan Kumar, and Saikat Mukherjee – but this is the only one I’ve ever seen by Pankaj Bose.

Other than steel guitar and harmonica, there are plenty of other instruments that have been featured on records of Bollywood covers: accordion – electric and acoustic, clarinet, clavioline, electric bass guitar, electric organ, mandolin – electric and acoustic, saxophone – alto and soprano, Spanish Electric guitar, synthesizer, violin – electric and acoustic, and whistling.

Catalog number KDEP 2101 on Kohinoor Record Co. of Calcutta (now Kolkata). No release date listed.

I think it released in 1981 because it says Highlights of 79-80 meant all of his songs recorded between 1979 and 1980.
