Pritish Nandy, an Indian poet who was very influential at the time, especially among the younger generation. This is a spoken word piece with readings by himself and Mallika Sarabhai, a well-known film actress and classical dancer, backed by music by sitar player/improvisational musician Ananda Shankar. We guess the biggest point of this one is the balance between this emotional recitation and exquisite volume's improvised performance. It's interesting from a musical perspective, ranging from Indian classical to mood music to psychedelic flavor. It lacks a booklet, but it seems to be rare, as few of his works have survived as record.
