Here is one more of the Deben Bhattacharya East European folk music recordings. This record was kindly supplied by rff000, a collector friend in music who not only shared his rip of the music and photos of the sleeve but also made good scans of the labels, to allow me to keep the same format for the posts here! I thank him much for that! All I did was some minor editing for clarity and readability only.

Hello there Bruce T.

Very happy to be involved in the "Once I was lost but now I've been found" !

It is truly a big satisfaction to finally hear what you have known existed for a long time but could not find. I remember so many records I only saw but had no time to listen to at the time and then they were gone! Fortunately many have been showing up lately. Taking inventory is a good thing because that is how many things surfaces again. But the best part is listening to and reading about all this music again that I have accumulated over the years and which does not seem to make it on to CD's and commercial recordings any more...

There is hundreds upon hundreds of records still waiting for their time in the spotlight again...
