I am sure, most of the Asha Fans would love to choose 1970s as the glorious era of this singing legend. It's true too, majority of her chartbusters, particularly cabaret and item songs featuring Helen belong to this era. R. D. Burman also gave almost all songs of 1970s to Asha, the glorious era of this composer too.
But I like Asha's songs of 1960s. Just close your eyes and listen to some compositions of O. P. Nayyar or fast tracks of R. D in the late 1960s or classic hits like 'Tere Khayalom Mein', I think the melody of 1960s cannot be beaten by fast tracks of 1970s or ghazals of 1980s. I think, Asha is simply at her best in singing melodies in 1960s. But unfortunate, many great composers didn't identify the real potential of Asha in the glorious era of Bollywood music. Really a loss for music lovers.
It's only my opinion. Which era of Asha songs is your favourite?
