Kamod as sung by DV paluskar-such a tragedy he died at 36

next as sung by Narayanrao vyas (disciple of Paluskar senior -Vishnu Digambar).Vishnu Digambar Paluskar left a very young DVP in charge of Naraynrao before dying.His story of spreading HM in North India-from Lahore to Bihar is a fascinating one ! was a strong believer that HM had to ride piggy back on devotional music if it had to survive and spread among the masses.

Gangubai in one of her interview admits that for the first batch of discs she cut ,she was not paid anything.The recording chap used to come to india from London once a year and would stay for 2 months at a stretch.AND ALL THESE STALWARTS WOULD BE WAITING IN A GROUP WAITING FOR DATES , IN BOMBAY.THEY WOULD HAVE GIVEN MONEY , IF NECESSARY, TO SEE THEIR VOICES ON DISCS.such was the attraction of being recorded.
puts all the present talk of copyrights etc in a different perspective.

I AM STILL IN SEARCH OF A 50 MINUTE RENDERING OF MSG -FEATURING SHYAM KALYAN- AT SASTRI HALL-CHENNAI- IN 1987 OR 88
strangely this is my entire stock of Kamod.
More strangely, except for subra guha , all the rest come from the same school....
