In the late 70′s and early 80s, ISKCON released a 20 tape series of kirtans and bhajans. As far as I know, none of these were released on any of the classic ISKCON records. Neither have they been released to CD.
I’ll be posting one each Saturday. And this week’s is Delhi Aratika!
Delhi Aratika claims to be produced by “Golden Avatar Productions.” I have no idea who Golden Avatar Productions was, but their name was on some vinyl as well. Also I believe there was a Golden Avatar cassette series, but I can’t remember. This is the only “Krishna Tapes” series that is associated with Golden Avatar Productions.
I think I’ll post a Golden Avatar Productions LP next Ekadasi. Hey, why not?
There are no credits on any of the tapes. And often, the title of the tape reflects only what’s on one side. For example, this is called Delhi Aratika, but some of the songs may have been produced somewhere else. Who knows.
Anyway, here it is…
KT-02 Delhi Aratika
01 – Golden Avatar Productions – Jaya Radha
02 – Golden Avatar Productions – Baja Jure Mana
03 – Golden Avatar Productions – Jaya Radha Madhava
04 – Golden Avatar Productions – Sri Nam Kirtana
05 – Golden Avatar Productions – Kirtana
06 – Golden Avatar Productions – Delhi Aratika
Some caveats: The sound quality isn’t great. These are from old tapes recorded by devotees. Quality wasn’t a priority. Also, they’re MP3s encoded at 128kbs – not the highest quality. But listenable.
Here’s a list of all the tapes…
