Here we present her first LP. Originally published in Pakistan, the LP itself in my possession is made in Pakistan, but the cover seams to be from the Indian edition.

Hi Tawfiq - it appears that the download link for this post actually points one to one of the wonderful Bahram Mansurov albums you've shared with us. Any chance of an updated link here?
Thanks for everything!
