Andharangam Yaavume & Manchu Kurise Velalo

Dear SPB Fans,

I am now presenting to you all a song in two versions – Tamil & Telugu.

My first tryst with this song (in Tamil) was in my first year at college, that too, not in our SPB’s voice but in a voice identical to our SPB !!!. Yes, our college had a very good light music orchestra. I happened to attend the first program for that academic year in our auditorium. I was late for the show and when I entered the hall, the singer from the orchestra started singing this song and it was the first time I heard it. It appeared as if SPB himself was singing it. Our college singer Mahesh was a very good crooner and was able to almost reproduce any SPB song with required passion. He, without fail, brought out all the nuances of the song and did enough justice to it (I realize it only now ??!!). I used to admire him a lot for singing our SPB songs. He had a try at film singing but chances did not come through and he pursued his engineering profession, occasionally singing in some orchestra at Chennai.

Only recently, I recollected this song as a part of my nostalgic trip to college days and browsed the web and for the first time heard it in our SPB’s voice. Indeed my friend Mahesh had not let me down then. He had rendered almost the same way our SPB had done. Our SPB has just freaked out in this song with his expressions. Regarding the rendering of "Eppadi Eppadi", i think it is not SPB, maybe IR doing it ? I am not sure.

Similar tune, especially the pallavi, was used by IR for a Telugu film “Abhinandhana” for the song “Manchu Kurise Velalo…”. Lyrics by Atreya & delivered romantically by SPB & SJ. This was a film which featured Karthik.

I have included both the Tamil & Telugu versions of the song.

Now, please go ahead and listen to it and enjoy

I do not remember hearing this song ever before. Its a great song ofcourse (which of HIS is not).

Great work that you, Dasarathi sir, is bringing out the hidden treasure of HIS.
I feel that even 'eppadi eppadi' is sung by HIM.

Dear Mr.Dasarathi,

It was ineed a pleasure listening to this song. I am indeed a hard core fan of Shri SPB ji and love every song of his especially the late 70's and early 80's. Absolutely memorable. I in fact have about 250 songs of SPB ji in my collection album.

Thanks for this master peice as well. I am sure even "eppadi eppadi" was his own voice.
