Ravi Shankar – Shankar Family and Friends

Ravi Shankar - Shankar Family and Friends

Out of print as a stand-alone release for decades since its original 1974 issue.

Produced by George Harrison, Shankar Family & Friends is an almost-forgotten masterwork – an emotional and sonic pact between two like-minded souls to both advance their spiritually minded bond and unite musical styles, cultures, and sounds.

Wondrous fashion Contributions from Ringo Starr, David Bromberg, Billy Preston, Nicky Hopkins, Jim Keltner, Klaus Voorman, and a host of virtuosic Indian musicians add to a diverse album that melds Eastern and Western traditions; encompasses jazz, funk, bhajan, Indian, and pop; and represents the spirit and breadth of Harrison’s Dark Horse Records imprint.

Mobile Fidelity’s numbered-edition 180g LP, sourced from the original analogue tapes, presents this unique album with restored sound that illustrates the beauty of the playing, compositions, and chemistry.
