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.


Regards,
-rAja
