So, continuing the series of postings on recent releases in the market
[once again thanks go to Sri Jampala for providing all his, carefully
collected, articles from recent years!] ....

{Before I start, a request to the nettors in USA: Could someone call
Mr. Lakshman and ask him to join the list and/or contact one of the list
members. It 'd be nice to hear about his impressions on G's Tamil songs.

Thanks!}

This one is a collection of (old) songs on Krishna, but not exclusively
from Ghantasala. But there are a couple of difficult-to-get songs that makes
it interesting buy and the reason to put it here.

Title: vasudEva sutam
Lable : ? Not mentioned (probably HMV)
Contents: OhO mOhana roopaa - SreekRshNa tulaabhaaram (G, PS)
	  jayakRshNaa mukundaa - paanDuranga mahaatmyam ( the long musical
					        bit at the end was cut :-( 
	  neela gagana ghana Syaamaa - chenchulakshmi (G)
	**raadhaa mOhana raasa vihaari - banDaraamuDu (G)
	**nallavaaDE vrEpalle vaaDE - chiranjeevulu (Leela, M: G)
	**ninu nera nammitiraa - vinaayaka chaviti (PS, M: G)
	  vinnaava yaSOdamma - maayaa bazaar (leela, suSeela, M: G)

Worth mentioing are: Srita jana paalaa - dEvaantakuDu (K. raghuraamayya)
		     raavOyi raavOyi O maadhavaa - chintaamaNi (bhanumati)
------------------------------------------------------------------------

While I am at listing songs Krishna let me say a few more words. IMHO the
better compilation is done by VAK Rangarao in late 1970 undre the title:

		SreekRshNa SaraNammama

containing real gems from 1951 to 1969, which includes 2 G's numbers:
priyE chaaruSeelE - bhakta jayadEva &
priyatamaa raadhikaa - peLLikaani pillalu (1961, aarudra, Master vENu)

Some other notable numbers are: 
AM Rajah's karuNaalOla Sritajanapaalaa (bhakta ambareesha, 1959)
Jikki (and Bhimavarapu Narasimharao)'s chinduvEya vOyi (dharmadEvata, 1952)
	   ------------------------(1)
Jikki's vadduraa kannayyaa (ardhaangi, 1955)
leela's tellavaaraga vacche (chiranjeevulu, 1956) etc.
