Sound quality: good
Reissue date: 1999
Absolutely no documentation accompanies this CD. In that sense, it is the latest shabby job by EMI India. However, it is certainly welcome nonetheless.
This is apparently the same recording as the Folkways 4131 LP of this music released in the US in 1981. Details from the documentation to that recording are as follows:
Accompaniment: Alandur S. Natarajan (violin), Visvanatha Iyer (mrdangam), Vazhutur Rajagopala Sarma (mantra recitations)
Recording date: March 1980 (Madras)
This is certainly a classic & important performance.
