Today I supplied new download links for three albums originally uploaded in the first couple of months of 2015 and which had lasted as viable links for a fair amount of time —
Nikhil Banerjee live in Stockholm performing Raga Desh as well as
Ravi Shankar and Alla Rakha (ASD 2341) and
Debu Chaudhuri’s “Sitar Maestro” LP originally released on ABK Records in the early 1970s.
Except for the album by Nikhil ji, all the new links are fresh transfers which sound better than the previous postings.
It should be pointed out that the reason these links expired has nothing to do with me. The cold fact is that each of these LPs went more than 30 days without being downloaded even once by the readers of this blog (or anyone else) and the Zippyshare website automatically deletes such "inactive files." However, there were quite a few people who originally did download the transfers in the year or so that they were still easily available (about 700-900 each).
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone. By the way, it is extremely informative to do a small amount of research into the origins of Mothers Day and who the first celebrants were and the original message they wanted the holiday to express. You might be surprised at the answer.
Thanks as always.
