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.
