Thank You Very Much, SOTISE! What a beautiful recording, as you say! And this is much, much better than just a "very decent rip". You are too modest indeed!
This sounds *cd quality* to my ears: what a warm, full-sounding, well-balanced recording this is!

And this also features the debut of the illustrious tabla player Sabir Khan on record as well.
Thanks again for sharing! --dandor

Sotise, thank you VERY much. Everything I've heard from Amjad Ali Khan is magic. If this is one of his best performances, I'm really keen to give this the first of what is sure to be many listens.

Thank you - much appreciated.

As the first side began to play I read through Amjad Ali Khan's comments on the back cover, noting that he felt the raga best suited to late evening performance.

It is summer here and I briefly considered waiting for what promises to be a balmy eve tonight to immerse myself in this however already transfixed I was unable to remove myself, and sat back to listen with morning sunshine and breeze drifting through my window, and the sound of bird song filtering in through aural spaces in the raga.
