This was George Harrison's first Ravi album he heard. It's the album that capipulted him into Indian music, the sitar and the entire Hindu/India spiritual culture. If you want to honor George or get your "Harrison-Shankar" on...this is your album. Actually the entire Ravi Shankar collection on CD remastered in 2000 is incredible. All should be in your music library for any serious Beatles fan or world music aficianado. A must if you like the sitar.
