Nitai Dasgupta - Songs Of India (LP)
"Manufactured Recordings reissues Songs Of India from prominent vocalist Nitai Dasgupta originally released on Vic Keary's underground label, Mushroom Records, in the early '70s. While Keary's background was in reggae, Mushroom Records dabbled in recording a bit of everything. Mostly known for hyper-rare psych, prog and acid folk, Nitai Dasgupta fits in perfectly with their British psych and prog label mates like Simon Finn, Magic Carpet, and Chillum. Nitai Dasgupta was one of the most talented Indian classical singers in Great Britain. His sweetness and flexibility created a unique style complemented by his melodious voice and composing abilities. Songs Of India pleases the lovers of Indian classical and semi-classical music while enticing pop and folk lovers. This LP even caught the ears of acclaimed electronic artist, Four Tet, who featured track 'Cham Cham Cham Cham' on his NTS Radio show. 'I inherited the Nital Dasgupta LP from my grandfather. I've no idea how he came to have it and after he died it sat on a shelf for many years before I found it and gave it a listen.' - Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet."
