Bahram Mansurov (1911-1985) - Tar - Azerbaijanian Mugams - LP published in Soviet Azerbaijan in 1974


Here we present another LP by the great Tar player Bahram Mansurov of whom we posted already two other LPs: see here and here. This LP here has partly the same tracks as the one published by Unesco. Apparently they took the recordings from existing Melodiya LPs. On this LP here the tracks on side 1 are identical with the tracks 5, 6 & 1 on the Unesco LP and tracks 1 & 3 on side 2 with tracks 7 & 3 on the Unesco LP. Only tracks 3 & 4 are new. Bahram Mansurov was also present on the two previous posts of Azerbaijanian Mugam.

Side 1:
1. Mahur Hindi
2. Bayati Kord
3. Bayati Isfahan


Side 2:
1. Chahargah
2. Shushtar
3. Neva-Nishapur
4. Choban Bayati
