Hare Krnsa Mantra
P roduction Notes: More than twenty years ago I recorded this simple track with Master Musician Glenn Bernardis, my old, dear and very talented friend. He played everything, sang back up vocals and beautifully produced. There is, I am informed, a final mix with tabla and tamboura on it which I hope to soon retrieve from Glenn, For the moment however, here is the first mix from my forth coming album ‘GOD DWELLS WITHIN’ – recorded so many lifetimes ago in his tiny, cozy studio in Western, New York, entitled; ‘HARE KRSNA MANTRA’.
Radhe Govinda Bolo
P roduction Notes 2: I have been in love with Parsi master Meher Baba since 1976 when I became friendly, and then unfriendly, with super star Baba devotee, Pete Townshend. I also knew his siblings and intimate devotees quite well, including Baba???s wonderful sister Mani and chief female disciple, Mehera. Fast forward to 2014 – thankfully, we are again very friendly, Baba, Pete and I. My first guru of note was A.C. Bhativedanta Swami back in 1969 whom I knew and studied under for over thirty years. Still Meher Baba???s simple teachings have always had an equally indelible impact on my tiny, miserly heart. His Great Silence and commanding compassion bowl me over still, even at my now ripe old age. I boarded the Love Train very early in life – for which I am very thankful. Bhativedanta Swami was certainly the engineer – but Meher Baba was the smiling, ticket taking, eternally optimistic conductor. Here then, is a small tribute in song and images to Baba. The music, composed and sung by myself is ???RADHE GOVINDA BOLO??? produced, yet again, by Glenn Bernardis.
