Mickey Hart has described this album;

I think this is number one in my personal recordings. The sarangi is an instrument of many voices. It expresses the sound of the human soul like no other instrument. Shri Rij Rams' inspired rhythmic accompaniment is awesome. I've heard this recording many times and look forward to each playing as if it were the first. These two, Sultan Khan and Ram, come together on this night like no other night. This is very special music.
