LP I bought in a library sale many years ago. Film soundtrack on the EMI label from 1953.
Features the beautiful voice of Lata Mangeshkar. Wikipedia says - " Anarkali (Hindi: अनारकली, Urdu: اناركلی) is a 1953 film based on the historical legend of the Mughal emperor Jahangir. As per the legend Jahangir revolted against his father Akbar over his love for a common girl called Anarkali. It was the top grossing Hindi film in the year of its release, and one of the biggest Hindi film hits in its decade. Another film on the same theme was Mughal-e-Azam, made in 1960, which was again a major commercial and critical hit." Anarkali - Side One.
