Roshan Ara Begum (1917-1982) - Roshan Ara Begum Sings - LP published in 1961 in Pakistan and also in India

Here the second of the two LPs by the great singer of the Kirana Gharana published in the beginning of the 1960s. The first one we posted in July 2012. See here.
We also had posted in March 2015 four cassettes by her published in 1978. See here.

This LP we bought in the 1970s with a generic cover (see below) in a Pakistani record shop in Southall, near London. Recently we bought another copy from India with the original cover. We offer here the music from the LP we bought in the 1970s (Pakistani pressing) and the covers of the recently bought LP (Indian pressing).

The generic cover of the Pakistani pressing I bought in the 1970s:

Downloadlinks work perfectly. The problem must be on your side. Try again.
The LP by Prabha Atre I don't have. It is republished on CD by Saregama.
