Hi everyone,

I was searching for James Kippen's website and stumbled across this gold mine from the British Library Archival Sound Recordings. These were all recordings that James did for his research. There is a great solo piece by Ustad Afaq Hussain and other great legends of tabla. Hope you enjoy it:

Peace,

If you are interested in the full 80 minute recording of Ustad Afaq Hussain Khan Saheb solo, google Dr. Mrinal Pal in Edison, NJ, send him a humble note requesting. Be courteous and reimburse him for his costs of a CD and shipping and he may send you a copy.

Speaking of Jim, I noticed recently that he has lost ownership of http://www.kippen.org, which was his personal website. It was filled with player bios and sound recordings and it's a shame that it has disappeared from the internet. I'll have to find out what happened...

Shawn,

I was also searching for his site. I'm surprised that it's no longer up too. It's too bad, it was a great resource.

I spoke with Jim ... he decided to take the site down and take a break for a while. Hopefully he'll be back sometime in the future!

remember tabla fans you can always go to http://www.archive.org and go to the WAYBACK MACHINE

which allows you to more or less ACCESS old websites which are no longer available

just type in the URL and hit TAKE ME BACK after getting to the main archive website.

SARVESHAM SWASTI BHAVATU

ALSO i have the full recording of Ustadji's performance and am also willing to copy it and send it to anyone who wants, i live in Los Angeles area so if you are here also we can meet even and exchange more rare recordings than that if that interests you....

Wow what a great material of this Great Tabla Maestro! Is it maybe possible to download/record these items exclusively for private use?
I'm curious to find out how and what program I can/have 2 use.
Thanks!

hi everybody,
I just got into this community. and am really happy about it. I have been a fan of David and Dr. Kippen all this time. Yes I was very upset to know that James Kippen's website is not there. I used to visit it frequently. I am from sri lanka. have been listening to tabla and playing for the last 20 or more years. I am interested in buying CDs of Us. Afaq hussain, Ilmas khan from anyone who has it. Please help me to start my collection of Tabla.
cheers.

There is way to save the audio recordings to your computer using VLC media player:

Underneath the player on the web page there is a link that says "Play this recording with your usual player." If you right-click on this and copy the link, you can then paste the URL into VLC and convert the stream to mp3 or mp4 as follows:

Under the VLC Media menu (File menu on a Mac) choose Save/Convert or Streaming/Transcoding Wizard on a Mac. On Windows you then choose the Network panel and then paste in the URL; on a Mac you put in the URL where it says Select Stream, then hit Convert/Save or Next. From there you can choose the codec and settings you want and give the file a name.

The only downside is that VLC converts the recording in real time, so it takes a while.

VLC Media Player http://www.videolan.org

FYI: According to the British Library's "Legal and ethical usage" info, there should be no problem with people saving these files to disk, as long as you don't distribute or repurpose them, and you use them only for education, research, or enjoyment.
