Pannalal Ghosh: The Magic Flute of Pannalal Ghosh [MOAE 5006] an LP released in India in 1968

Here we have a delightful LP by the legendary bansuri maestro Pannalal Ghosh, uncle of a certain sitarist (and tabla maestro) who was recently featured in this space with several live performances.

Hopefully, it will be the beginning of a series of transfers of LPs by Pannalal Ghosh as well as some other (at least three, possibly four) flautists both in his tradition and outside of it. 

Equipment used in transfer: 

Preparation: Ultrasonic cleaning for 20 minutes in pure clean water.
Turntable: Audio-technica AT-LP-1240
Cartridge: ATmono3LP
Pre-amplification: Vintage refurbished Pioneer SX-780.
Recorder: Sony PCM-M10 at 24bit/96kHz resolution
Software: Audacity, ClickRepair, and xAct
