Jagdish Prasad (1941-2011) passed away - In his memory: HMV introduces Pandit Jagdish Prasad - LP ECSD 2806 (1978) - The Gramophone Company of India

"The mesmerizing singer Pandit Jagdish Prasad has breathed his last this morning [18 July 2011] around
9:30 a.m. at Sri Aurobindo Seva Pratisthan [EEDF], Kolkata. His body will be brought to the ITC-Sangeet Research Academy tomorrow [19 July, 2011] at 11 a.m. for the music lovers and his admirers to show their last respect to this unforgettable music legend." Pt. Sanjoy Bandhopadhyay
"Sad Indeed! Just now confirmed with his son. Panditji was very critical on ventilaor for last 2 weeks. He left this world today morning leaving all the classical music lovers in deep sorrow. He was probably the most deserving Patiala follower nearest to his teacher, U. Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. May his soul rest in peace !" Dr. Kashyap
Since his very first LP I was always very fond of his music. For about two weeks I had in mind to post the two LPs I have in my collection, as he was an artist who did not get at all the acknowledgement he deserved. Here in his memory his first LP:

Tabla: Ustad Nizamuddin Khan

Side 1:
Raga Bageshwari (19:55)

Side 2:
Raga Gujri Todi (10:44)
Thumri Bhairvin (8:43)
