Vilayat Khan - Sitar - A Treasure from Solomon's Mines SME 1/2 - Very rare Indian LP from 1956

This is a very rare LP from an Indian label called "A Treasure from Solomon's Mines". According to the liner notes the date of publication is 1956. The label apparently published in the second half of the 1950s a couple of LPs (the very first LPs published in India), for example in 1957 one by Ram Narayan (SME 3/4).
There had been in the internet already links to download this record, but unfortunately with very poor sound quality. The files we present here are from a broken LP, which a friend was able to restore. The result is much more satisfying then the files found in the internet. There are still some cracks, but otherwise the music has good sound quality.
