I bought this album a long time ago on a bit of a whim as at the time I was just getting into the whole sitar scene........yep George Harrison eat your heart out!
Ananda Shankar is from the famous Shankar family and no question at some point he ran into rock and roll head on and loved it. This album is a total fusion of rock and Eastern sitar raga-like structures. Ananda plays a sitar just like Pandit Ravi.....with huge feeling and comfort. On this album Shankar creates psychedelic moods with ode to the Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and a rather crazed version of The Doors' "Light My Fire".
The album features some groovy vibes and trippy parts with some fine moog , bass and percussive bits. This all instrumental album is great from start to finish and i would highly recommend this album to all day trippers!
