Does anyone know where I might find a tabla solo recording of Ustad Inam Ali Khan originally done by Robert Gottlieb (recorded in Bombay october 6, 1971). It's a 15 minute performance, and it might be included as part of set of performances possibly.

The reason I ask is that Gottlieb transcribed the entire performance which is available at google books

http://books.google.com/books?id=sxp7Cz7HStYC&pg=PA7&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=4#v=onepage&q&f=false

about 30 pages are available for preview which includes Inam Ali Khan's transcribed performance.

I have got that book "Solo Tabla drumming of North India" by Robert Gottlieb beautifully packaged ( it cost a lot of dosh ) and you can still buy it on ebay or Amazon , it come with 2 books & 2 cassette tapes which have 6 solos in all performed & transcribed on them including the one you want the others being Pandit Kishan Maharaj,Alla Rakha Khan, Keramatullah Khan , Habibuddin Khan Wajid Hussain Khan & Anyone Khan if they practice hard enough ! The Inam Ali Khan (Delhi Gharana) one is like you say just under 15 minutes recorded in Bombay October 1971 but the recording is particularly very tinny sounding, i guess old Robert was using a hand carried recorder like a Nagma or Sony cassette those being state of the art back in those days. All the solos are transcribed but not necessarily 100% accurate. I just pulled the book package out , cleared of the dust and noticed that at some point over the years i have lifted all the recordings off the cassettes and on to 2 cd's which i possess. You search around America , i mean it must be in californieh somewhere, is Robert still alive ? I am in the UK but if you send me a 1st class BA ticket return i can deliver it personally !

It's apparently selling for more than $200 at Amazon ... not exactly in my budget. my google searches have essentially come up empty with regards to any recordings. If I had the $$$ I be delighted to have you as a guest in missouri!

Hahaha - you guys are funny -

The link is interesting and all - but I don't think it's worth $200+ in terms of practical usefulness.
But i'm sure it is worth that if not more as for "collecters value" - so hold on to it tightly bhilaj !

The link was interesting to the google books you provided Pascal - I like the family trees for all the gharana - however again the bols look messy and badly presented - and almost a headache to interpret it all - not so worth it in my opinion :?

Here's Inam Ali's recording on Patrick Moutal's site. I think he has all of the solos from Gottlieb's book:

I don't know how I missed it in my google searches, but that's *exactly* the recording I was looking for! Many thanks!!
