I have a query. I am hearing the duet: evvarO endukeereeti saadhinturu ...
from navagraha poojaamahima (1964, S: G & jaanaki, MD: raajan-naagEndra, 
L: GK moorti) after long years and feel that theres also a solo version
of this by G. I asked the recording shop owner, who is highly knowledgable
and who runs the shop more out of his sheer love for good music - I would
like to add, if a solo version existed. He said he was not aware of any!
But, somehow, I am not able to get rid of this feeling that a solo existed.
Could someone pl. make a definitive statement :-)!

Thanks and Regards,             --Sreenivas

P.S. Sree Prabhaakar has wRITten the lyrics for this song, and he 
mentions it as a duet version only.

P.P.S. A non-G matter, that was discussed here earlier.... Sudhakar gaaru
asked about M. Bala muralikrishna's film songs, and I wrote that "jayabhEri"
(1958) 'd his first film (if one keeps naagayya's raamadaasu-released in 
1964, but produced over 10 years, aside). I have to correct myself! He sang 
for Akkineni Nageswararao in "satee saavitri" (1957, Master vENu). This 
surprises me (a lot!)i, and makes me curious to know what lead the producer
(kannaamba&her husband kaDaaru naagabhooshNam) and MD to go for MBK, that 
too in hey days of G.
