NOTICE: The bulk of this historic, archival recording is of very
high quality, made with a stereo Nagra recorder and Schoeps microphones
on stage. However, the first five minutes are missing from the
master tape. In order to present the complete performance, and
Mr. Banerjee's full raga development, this deficit is covered
with a recording made from the audience. This is a high-fidelity
rendition of the sound heard by a member of the audience at the
concert: the sound from the PA system, audience noises, some coughs
etc. See Producer's Note.
