Namaste! Nearly a month after sending an email through their website (www.saregama.com) HMV/RPG enterprises has responded with the attached response. Some good news, some one is listening. HMV/RPG will release an album in Nov. on the occasion of Ghantasala's 75th birthday on Dec. 4th '97 I only hope they include some good rare songs. This mail is just FYI. Honestly speaking, I questioned in my email why HMV treats telugu language as a step mother. I also mentioned how injustice has been done to ghanTasAla's bhagwadgeeta by cutting the music between various slokAs. (probably they did to fit a 80 minute LP on a 71 minute CD, but that does not justify the edits.) I suggested for a re release the two CD's with some great songs by G on Lord Krishna.
