I thank to Shri Kumar Patwardhan Sir for this beautiful recording of Marwa. His father had copied it from a radio program in 1960s on an old disk. He copied it to cassette, and I tried to copy it in digital format. It is around 24 mins.

Thanks for the post here, and to Nilesh.

There's good news and bad news on this Marwa.

The good news is that there exists another version of the performance which is not only of superior sound quality but is complete at just under 43 minutes, including alap and the end of the gat. This was broadcast on AIR in 1963 according to the excellent Holistic. This was a live performance rather than a studio performance.

The bad news is I can't figure out exactly where I got my version from as I can't immediately find it in Holistic's mediafire folder. And I'm sorry but I can't post myself right now, I tried but my connection just isn't up to it.

If all else fails I can share it when I'm back in civilisation in October. But I have an atrocious memory and would need reminding.

Anyways, Thanks Ragmala for replying this post. I am searching this recording from some time. I was thinking whether somebody is having it or not. I mailed AIR. As expected, no response.
