Music Of India – Morning & Evening Ragas

LP (Item 820727) Angel, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Early international recordings made by these two masters of Indian music. The first half features 50s sides by Ali Akbar Khan – oddly narrated with an introduction on each number by Yehudi Menuhin, then giving way to a much longer instrumental passage that features Khan's amazing work on sarod – a multi-stringed, lute-like instrument. Titles include "Rag Sindhu Bhairavi" and "Rag Pilu Baroowa". The second half features work by Ustad Vilayat Khan – possibly the second-best known sitar player in the world in the 60s after Ravi Shankhar, but one with a sound that was sometimes a bit more precise. The tracks by Vilayat Khan are all a bit shorter, and filled with amazing sitar work – eerie tones and notes that dance together beautifully in patterns that unfold slowly. Titles include "Raga Des", "Raga Pahadi", "Raga Shandrakauns Asthai", "Raga Bihag", and "Bhatiyali Dhun".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
