My summer vacation has just started and I am trying my hands on several things.. This morning while searching for some components in my junk box, some old audio cassettes came out. In fact, I had a collection of around 200 rare cassettes in the 90s. Most of them are useless now.
One of the cassettes that came out was a Jugalbandi recital from Dr. Blamuralikrishna and Pt.Hariprasad Chaurasia . I remembered the sweet mohanam/bhoopali jugalbandi from the maestros and instantly decided to recover it and make Mp3s. My first problem was finding out a cassette player .After some search, I located an old Videocon cassette player. Its power supply was faulty.. I was able to play the cassette after 3 hours of hard labour.
Audacity was used to grab the tracks and convert it to mp3. The music is very much mellifluous. Later , I searched the Internet for details about the volume. It is is listed on music india online. You listen to it here. I could not find any on line shops selling this particular volume.
