If you're just getting into classical Indian music like me but would like to sample a gentler, less "muscular" alternative to plucked instruments like the sitar and sarod, you may grow to love Shivkumar Sharma's music as much as I do. His instrument is the santoor, a dulcimer struck with soft wooden mallets. He plays BEAUTIFULLY here (and on every album of his that I've heard). I'm mainly a jazz and blues fan and just learning about India's northern Hindustani and southern Carnatic music traditions, but both are surprisingly enjoyable to my ears and heart. My music rating: ***** five starsFor vinyl audiophile dorks only: I just ripped this via the Audacity app at 24-bit/96khz for portable listening and can verify that this pressing sounds and tests phenomenally: strong frequency response from 20 to 28,000 hz (Grado Silver cartridge, customized Dual turntable). Despite the common reports that EMI India pressings are noisy and dropout-ridden, this was not the case here—very quiet vinyl—perhaps I got lucky. I'm guessing that other EMI/His Master's Voice albums with this production team will have similar excellent specs. Microphone setup and room "bounce" here is similar to most of EMI India's 1960s-1970s recordings: up-close miking at 5-7 feet from the artists* with strong but not severe L-R channel separation (some pleasing "cross-talk leakage"), and very little room reverb. My audio sound rating: **** 4 stars*Per the back cover notes of an Ustad Ali Akbar Khan recording done the same year and location.
