Hi Wayne! This is the David Parsons track. He mixes field recordings with electronics and, in this case, plays a mean sitar as well.

Thanks... Wow! Wonderful show, Rob.

Glad you like it. Sorry I had to shatter the David-Parsons-induced trance with this disco raga, but after Parsons, it seemed like the only way to go.

Yeah, and that Charanjit Singh too! 1982... Yup, way ahead of its time.

WOW! And dug the &^#@ outa that Wolfgang Dauner's Etcetera track too. Yeah, "mind melting", indeed. Listening along after the fact ...

Great show Rob! Right up my India/fusion alley, with plenty of high speed gear grinding. New terminology: "Post-Interactive" ?!

Alnoor Allidina (host)
No kidding. Just finished listening. I heard the Wolfgang Dauner on the original air-date and was blown away as well.
