"How do you compress long hindustani songs to fit onto 3 minute wax disks? This question must have vexed indian musicians at the turn of the 20th century, and this CD shows how they cut down the songs for recording.The songs are very short for anyone used to listening to hindustani music, and the recording quality leaves something to be desired (these recordings were made in 1920 - 1930), but for the sheer historical record this cd presents, its well worth the price. If you are a fan of light hindustani, or historically curious, you will enjoy this album."
