Roshan ~ Taj Mahal

I first saw the video on a bollywood comp, many thanks to Mister Naidu and finally managed to pick up the album, this my favourite track, albeit cut to 6 minutes from the 9 in the film, still just sublime

Within You Without You

This was the track that first made me interested in the sitar when I was young, George Harrison's Within you without you and to this day it still hits the spot with me so here's a few covers of it for you,I've also included one from an ABC television show by Anthony Newley which is particularly nice. If anyone has any other good versions please send them as I never tire of it, no hip hop remix ones please thanks

Ravi Shankar - Chappaqua 1966

An unusual film following an addict’s wild journey into a psychedelic world set not in reality, but in the delusional landscapes of the mind. Tormented during withdrawal by a disorienting mingling of recollection and fantasy, he experiences a life-affirming epiphany, which leads him from his nightmare.
