Greenwood Press Discographies No. 17, Association for Recorded Sound Collections Discographic Reference

This exhaustive and complete discography of Indian music issued on microgroove discs and cassettes provides information on over 2,700 recordings of classical and semi classical music of the Indian subcontinent. It covers the period from the early 1950’s to the end of 1983 and also contains information on recordings from the early 1930’s onward that were originally issued at 78 RPM and have been reissued on microgroove discs. The main text of the discography is divided into five sections: Hindustani Instrumental, Hindustani Vocal, Karnatic Instrumental, Karnatic Vocal, and Anthologies. Artists are listed alphabetically and brief biographical information is provided when possible. The recordings are indexed by Raga and Tala (the melody and the rhythm), thus allowing comparison between different recordings of the same piece. An instrumental index is included as are appendices and indexes to artists, music genres and styles.

[NOTE] This Discography does not contain information about Cassette and Compact Disc issues beyond 1983 – but it does provide the origin and source information about thousands of tracks that have subsequently been released on Cassettes and Compact Discs, the origin of which is not usually given in the documentation of these more recent formats.
