Must have album in your collection.

I started appreciating Pt Bhimsen Joshi’d music in the 90’s. He was at the peak of his career and health and a typical concert would include three items like you see in this Album, that is a more than 70 minutes of performance.
Just when I thought I had most of the collections by Panditji out there, I came across this album. The Puriya Kalyan with the same cheez (or lyric) was recorded much earlier (in the 70’s and is available in an album called “Vocal Vol #5” or something like that) and has been my favorite for a long time. This one is recorded in the 90’s so the quality of the recording is much better. The second number is a Thumri and generally one is guaranteed a treat when anything is set in the Deepchandi taal. The third one is a longer version of the famous Bhajan. Panditji took the format of the bhajan to classical level.
P.S: This is a great label to look out for if you are a collector of Panditji’s music. Also most albums cost much more that this one, not sure why this one costs so less.
