First one is Tilak Kamod, I think. Though the gat sounds like Khamaj. Ill have to wait until Aanaddha posts the label to see how wrong I am.
I was sort of right.

Des is the first raga.

Pahadi the second.

j e k,
...out of curiosity, what's the full translation on the labels?

Can of the resident sitar afficianado/audio collectors give an approximate date/period for this recording?? Any similiar recordings with VK or VK and AR on HMV?

Ditto the Sampta Prasad posted earlier?

It bugs me as well. Name the tabla player! I have been compiling discographies for that very purpose. Often we get a recording on the internet with just the sitarist etc listed. If it came from a recording the discographies help identify the player, especially if one is not sure by the playing style.

(From an interview with Pt. Shankar Ghosh)
http://www.darbar.org.uk/~darbar04/press/article.php?content=103

With Vilayat Khan your recording with Darbari Kanada its recognised to be one of the most acclaimed instrumental recordings, what do you remember?

"We had a performance one evening in a music circle in Calcutta with Vilayat Khan Sahib. And after that performance Khan Sahib asked me to stay behind for the recording. We went to HMV’s studios a short way from Calcutta. When we were about to record I said perhaps we could start with a fixed composition, Utthan, on the tabla. He agreed. So I played and he eventually picked up with the Sitar. Then after the session was over we immediately knew, and those that were listening also knew that it was great recording. And it was all done in one take."

Ok I made a mistake of sorts. I had thought each jpeg file was the label to a side of ONE disk (I only downloaded the first audio clip). So I ended up just posting the content on the label of that first file only. I will now post the contents of both jpeg files down here.

Full transliteration (translates itself):

First file:

(1) setaar gut - raag des
(2) setaar gut - raag pahaari


Second file:

(1) setaar - meshra kHamaach - alaap
(2) setaar - meshra kHamaach - gut

The label files were not posted in the same order as the corresponding audio files.

Here is how they relate to each other:
