Every Town and Village LP Krishna Rock 8

Every Town and village LP, a collection of songs form the 1972 San Francisco Rathayatra Festival, as well as the 1972 New York Sri Sri Radha-Govinda Temple.
This is an interesting record. Basically a "field recording" of samkirtan and sankirtan. Hansadutta is leading the chants on some tracks(There is another Hansadutta LP to be reviewed here later this week!) 10 tracks. 6 short Samkirtans and 4 longer tracks. The shorter Samkirtan's are all interesting variations on the chant -different tempos and insturments. Excellent cover painting plus photos on back. This is a Golden Avatar Production from the Bhativendanta Book Trust. So another label for an "official" krishna release. Similar to the Hara Krsna Festival LP I reviewed as well. The title of course comes from Lord Caityanya's statement that "In Every Town and Village the chanting of the Holy Name of Krishna shall be heard"
