In addition, because this LP was one of many I have purchased new and unplayed on Discogs from my friend and fellow blogger Tawfiq, the condition of the LP and cover were immaculate. Indian manufacturers of LPs often utilized worn stampers which were used so many times per hour that there was not an appropriate time allowed for them to cool properly. There is no evidence of that kind of practice in this wonderful album.
I have posted a few VG Jog LPs in the past, and there are two more to come.
