Khan Bandhu: Ustad Mohammad Sayeed Khan & Ustad Mohammad Rashid Khan - Rare Morning Ragas - Cassette published 1987 in India




For more infos on the singers see our earlier post here.

Many thanks to Ed from Amsterdam who kindly shared this cassette. Here what he wrote: "I saw on your blog the LP from Khan Bandhu and people asking if there are more known published  recordings. You answered there was one more LP which you did not have. Last week I found a cassette in a second hand shop from Khan Bandhu for the price of 0,10 euro. Yes, what a surprise, what a miracle. No other Indian cassettes, only this one."

Thank you, Ed & Tawfiq. This album is new to me. Besides the LP you posted here too, I only have a 19 minute Gaud Malhar by the Khan Bandhu on some Indian mix tape somewhere. I can send it to you for ripping, if you like...

Another tape by hmv in 1999 with gaud malhar, kafi kanhra & achhob. Thanks for your nice sharing... Allauddin.

Thanks. I have a copy of this cassette. It is identical with the first LP "Khan Bandhu" published in 1976. I just found out that I had already for many years a copy of the cassette posted here, but without covers.
Mohammad Sayeed Khan published also a CD in the Netherlands in the 1990s - I guess - from a concert of Khan Bandhu in Bombay in 1984 under the title "Malhar-Ke-Parkar - Live Concert - Vol. 1". A vol. 2 was never published.

i have the album entitled "Malhar-Ke-Parkar" as well as the album from Mohammad Sayeed Khan entitled Raga Malkous. If you like I can send them to you.

Regards,

Dear Mr. Bajwa,
in my copy of "Malhar-Ke-Parkar" the third track which should be Raga Sughrai is only 4 seconds long. How is it on your CD? If there is the third track I would be very interested in it. That was a source of quite some frustration for me.

Mr. Bajwa said...

the same for my copy tawfiq...not sure why

Mr. Bajwa said...

do you still want me to send you the copy of ustad sayeed khan's album entitled raga malkous?

Tawfiq said...

Dear Mr. Bajwa,
sorry for the very late response. Many thanks for the offer, but I have this CD.
