This product is currently out of stock

Product Information

This genrebusting 1975 album seamlessly fuses the traditional music of Ananda Shankar ’s homeland, India, with the heavy psych-funk of the West, where he’d spent a good deal of time. Featuring the dancefloor killers ‘Streets Of Calcutta’ and ‘Dancing Drums’ alongside a handful of mellower tracks, the original, India-only LP has long been one of the world’s most sought-after records. Psychedelic breaks and beats at their most beautiful, and for the first time on CD." That’s the description from the label one-sheet, but that doesn’t tell you the half of it—this is not pseudo-lounge sitar pop/psych like his oft-reissued Reprise LP, with it’s covers of ‘Jumpin’ jack Flash’etc… no, no, no, for this little disc has got some serious groove to it, with sitar/funk action, and interesting compositions that make this recording much more than the sum of its exotic parts.
