Ram Narayan plays Sarangi - A Treasure from Solomon's Mines - A very rare 10" LP published in India in 1957


I never came across another copy of this very rare LP except for the one I was able to buy recently. A couple of years ago I even never had heard that this LP exists. In july 2012 we posted another 10" LP by the same label, their very first one, by the great Vilayat Khan. These were the first LPs ever published in India.

Dropbox works perfectly. The mistake must be on your side. Try again.

Thank you so much for all these lossless high definition posts recently.
So much nice and enjoyable music you're coming up with. Such a joy to turn on this music and listen and listen and listen to it. A really great blog. Fantastic.
Get on with it. But you do anyway as it seems to me.

These Solomon's Mines smaller format LP's were so wonderful! As it happens our flat in Bombay is right above Solomon's Mines old HQ at Hampton Court, where Wodehouse Road ends at Colaba Causeway. I remember them from my childhood.
