Release Date:09/29/2017;Notes:Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Ananda Shankar was a Bengali musician best known for fusing Western and Eastern musical styles. Ananda Shankar is the debut album by the Indian musician, the son of dancer and choreographer Uday Shankar and the nephew of Indian classical musician Ravi Shankar. It was released in 1970 and was among the first works in the rock genre by an Indian musician. Consisting mainly of instrumental recordings featuring sitar and Moog synthesizer, it includes a cover version of the Rolling Stones' 1968 hit song 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' and a thirteen-minute Indian-style piece titled 'Sagar (The Ocean)'. In the decades since the LP's release, 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' became a popular club hit, while the album has been recognized for it's influence on world music fusion, particularly the East West styles developed in the UK. It is one of the albums featured in Robert Dimery's book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. In 2005, his song 'Raghupati' was used in the game Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories soundtrack.
