4.0 out of 5 stars This is a compilation. Not an album. September 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a compilation. Not an album. If you want an overview, OK. If not, don't buy it.
"Call of the Valley," (a collaboration, not under Hariprasad's name) much of which is included here, is available in it's entirety in CD form. Some of the other material may be hard to find.
The insert booklet is very well annotated, with a list of musicians and which album and year each track is from.
Material spans from late 60's to mid 90's.
I originally gave it only one star, not because of the quality of the music (Hariprasad is 5-star on anything recorded), but because it is a compilation and very little is done to convey this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect introductory CD June 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When you first approach a genre like Hindustani Classical Music, it can be very daunting for the novice to make a successful purchase. If you buy something, a performance you dislike it will likely mar your understanding and appreciation of the entire genre or Artiste, themself. Sadly, the truth is, of course, that it could simply be THAT performance or that recording which is not to your taste, and not the entire genre. One usual way around this problem is to purchase a compilation. However, whilst compilations might work in pop and rock in Raga music they usually do not.

The simple reason being that it is the entire performance one should listen to, the entire progression of the Raga from its origins in Alap through its growth into Jor and finally its culmination in Jhala. To cut out a third or an even smaller portion is like picking out a few pages of sentences from a great work of Literature and putting it in a collection of literary works as being representant, something which you simply wouldn't do.

Having stated the above, however, I have to say that this CD is absolutely first-rate and very surprising for three reasons. Firstly the editor (Iain Scott) CLEARLY knows his stuff, he has clearly and consciously selected excellent tracks. Secondly, he has actually cheated a little, insofar as he has included numerous tracks of one previous recording, therefore, every track is not from a different source. And finally, because Scott had the intelligence to make this a two CD production, he could easily separate the chosen works into 'contemporary' and 'classical' thereby being able to include much shorter modern pieces on the first CD.

This CD works for a number of reasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite musicianship December 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's really incredible what this man gets out of a simple bamboo flute. He IS a master. There's one track I'm not sure about, but on the whole it's great musical experience that sounds fresh every time you play it. Highly recommended.
