By the mid-'90s, Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré was expanding his signature acoustic African blues by changing his instrumental palette and collaborating with Western musicians like Ry Cooder (as on 1994's Talkin' Timbuktu). While Touré gained prominence during this period, many die-hard fans tout the artist's earliest work as his strongest. The double-disc set Red & Green brings together two albums originally released by the French label Sonodisc between the mid- and late '80s. The original vinyl versions were long out of print and difficult to find, until their issue here on World Circuit/Nonesuch. Both albums are entirely acoustic (Touré didn't introduce an electric guitar until 1991's The Source), with minimal accompaniment on calabash and ngoni (a traditional four-string guitar), which perfectly complements Touré's percussive guitar style and plaintive, keening vocals.

There is absolutely no need to describe anything about 'Ustad Ali Akbar Khan'. However, In simple way, I would reveal again, He is undisputed 'Sarod' emperor of the 20th century. In this particular release, we'll have a rare and great chance to listen to his early recordings. As an young man, he performed so many times for All India Radio from late 30's to late 60's and this particular release gives us a rare and great chance to listen some of those recordings which were selected between 1956 to 1967. Unfortunately not much information is available on these recordings and they have not even furnished who accompanied him on Tabla in these recordings. But during those years, few tabla players like Kanai Dutta, Shankar Ghosh, Mahapurush Misra, Shashi Bellari, Nikhil Ghosh, Chatur Lal, Kishan Maharaj etc were actively participated with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, so surely some of them would have performed on these recordings.
