5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Box set 19 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
This box set is beatifully presented and of the highest quality. The hardback book has beautiful photographs and includes comments from George and Ravi.

The albums come in cardboard sleeves approx 10" in size with original sleeves and inners. The 3 music albums are 1. Chants from India 2. Shankar Family and Friends and 3 Ravi Shankar's Music Festval from India. The albums have all been released previously but are unavailable, with the latter two never having appeared on CD.

The music in my humble opinion is light Indian classical, and is more accessible than some of the heavier Ravi Shankar works available.

The box includes a DVD of the Ravi Shankar conert at the Albert Hall in 1974,including 18 indian musicians.

Excellent value for money and a fitting tribute to both Ravi Shankar and George Harrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous 18 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Truly a most beautiful and gorgeous boxset, with the albums presented in separate sturdy 10" sleeves (as if they were small LPs!). The booklet is of the uppermost picture quality and delightfully presented.
A grand expression of how much the Harrisons love/loved Ravi Shankar and his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative box set 27 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can only agree with everyone else here. This is a very aesthetically pleasing box set - maybe one of the best I have come across in years. I have heard all the albums a long time ago and have just started re-listening to "Chants of India" (disc 1 on this set). Beautiful music, very uplifting and the book that comes with this...stunning. The sheer quality of the whole presentation of the book and the discs themselves is outstanding (maybe the Apple Records box set should have been like this?)
Apparently, this is a limited edition of 10,000 copies worldwide? (Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong). Snap this up quickly if you can. NOT to be missed. Full marks to Rhino/Dark Horse & Olivia Harrison and everyone else for doing a superb job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't think twice - get this! 18 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wow - this is a great set! The presentation is execellent - perhaps the best mid-priced boxed set I've seen; whilst the music is phenominal. The remastering, too, is marvellous and makes these tracks come to life. Buy this on CD now while you still can. It's limited to 10,000 copies worldwide and comes with a certificate to prove it. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Tribute 31 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
The detail and thought put in to this box set is stunning and a beautiful tribute to both Shankar and Harrison.
The music is of course timeless and sublime. The book is beautifully set out with some great photographs, in particular the final one of an older George and Ravi sitting together in a father and son like setting which made me smile because you can almost feel the love and respect emanating from it.
This is a must if your a fan of Shankar and Harrison and the price is incredible for the quality of the box set.
The influence these two artists had on music still resonates around the world to this very day. Together they produced something that can reach inside and touch the very soul of music and this box set is part of that history.
Simply beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting tribute to two great artists 15 Oct 2011
By Antoine
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can only agree with what everyone else has said here about this collection. It's a beautifully produced set, particularly with all the discs in mini vinyl reproduction sleeves but not the usual small 5 inch size sleeves where the writing is far too small. These sleeves are approx 8 inches in size and all the better for it, being somewhere between CD and album sized. The "inner sleeves" are thick cards that perfectly hold the discs in place plus inserts that I assume are reproductions from the original vinyl releases. A shame this size isn't used on more mini vinyl releases. As for the music (most of which I've not heard prior to this set, not having bought the original releases), Chants of India is a little different in style to the other albums and focuses less on the usual sitar sound that you'd expect but is still a treat while Shankar Family & Friends takes some unexpected twists. Whilst listening to it for the first time, I really didn't know what to expect from the next track, there's a real mix of styles from traditional Indian music mixed with western instruments and each track is very different from the next. The Festival from India CD is more familiar classical Indian music territory and in places is similar in style to the large ensemble for "Arpan" from Concert for George. The DVD has excellent quality sound and picture although you don't really get a sense of it being filmed at the Royal Albert Hall, from what you can see, it could have been filmed anywhere! A hardback book completes the set and is also of the highest quality.
