The Shape of Things to Come

Here is about one-fifth the LPs I have in line to digitize for this blog.

I certainly hope that in a few days more transfers will appear. I appreciate your patience with me.

I have been fortunate to see quite a few live performances of Hindustani Music in the last month. If I told you what city I lived in, it would not sound like a Capital of Indian music — but there are plenty of chances to see the music live if you know how and where to look.

I encourage everyone in North America to seek out live music of all kinds, even if you really have to search for the concerts — these recordings are amazing but live music will always be where it’s easiest to have a transcendent experience listening to the vibrations in the air.

As always I thank you, my readers. I read every single comment submitted. I have been having trouble getting my replies to upload to the blog, but let me assure everyone — if your comment has been published, I have seen it, read it, decided it was not spam, and hit the “publish” link.

PS plenty of bansuri and violin music on the way

  9. Great work, and very music lover looks forward to the quality of your transfers. Wish others were as caring and techno-savvy. The rarer LPS are worth seeking out: The Khan brothers, Niyaz and Fayyaz Ahmed LPs, Vasantrao Deshpande's Nat Bhairav LP, early Jitendra Abhisheki LPs, Pakistan EMI LPS for Latafat Hussain, Roshan-Ara-Begum, LPS of Sharafat Hussain, and so on ... and all of Paluskar!
