  1. Just noticing that you are perhaps a good guy to ask. Your appreciation of the classical music of India, and also being such a Violinist Lover... No one I have mentioned my desires to has been interested... I Am Seeking L. Shankar's works (Not with Shakti(McLaughlin), or Frank Zappa) but his many albums of traditional stuff with guys like Zakir Hussein or other tabla ... and whoever else is working with him. L. Shankar is barely even noticed in USA but he truly is as great as any of the greatest of India.

    1. I will take your suggestion into account, thank you for commenting.
