Singh Bandhu: Tejpal Singh & Surinder Singh - Dawn & Dusk - LP published in India in 1980


Here one of the many LPs by another duo of brothers, Tejpal Singh (b. 1937) and Surinder Singh (b. 1940), popularly known as “Singh Bandhu,” They were quite popular in the 1970s and 1980s.





"The brothers Tejpal Singh (b. 1937) and Surinder Singh (b. 1940), popularly known as “Singh Bandhu,” cut their musical teeth under their elder brother G.S. Sardar. Later, Surinder Singh took taleem from N. Aminuddin Dagar. In 1961, both the brothers became pupils of Amir Khan. The time spent at the feet of the great ustad was to play a major role in the transformation of their respective musical personalities. The Singh brothers are also adept at devotional music, and have an association with not only with the shabads of the Sikh gurus, but also with the works of the Sufi saints and the Bhakti saints of south India."
from: Bharatiya Sangeetkar Ustad Amir Khan by Ibrahim Ali (Classical Publishing Company, New Delhi, 2000)

Thanks for sharing, but again clipping to hell, so you destroy the music that are on the vinyl,,,a shame,,,

Tawfiq said...

Again the problem must be on your side. Google the problem. Did you compare the size? Did you try the mp3?
On our side there is no problem. So I can't do anything. The problem is on your side and you have to fix it yourself.
I always try to help but I'm not a babysitter.

You record the vinyl too load and the music clipping, so you destroy the music,,,

It's a shame because this is very rare records.

I'm a vinyl ripper myself, so I know to use all that stuff for ripping,,,
