The second installation of the Nine decades series, Reminiscence of North Vista, is a live recording from a private party at Ravi's North Vista home in los Angeles on August 29, 1969. Ravi moved to the Hollywood house in 1968 and regularly had parties attended by luminaries such as george Harrison, John lennon, Peter Sellers, Marlon Brando and many others. this recording perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the performances at these gatherings. Recorded just one week after his legendary Woodstock appearance, the set features the Maestro performing two evening ragas with Alla Rakha on tabla (as well as the sounds of crickets and party-goers). this is an unique performance by two artists at the height of their power, performing in an informal setting in front of family and friends.

North Vista is the name of the street in Hollywood where I settled down in mid-1968, a wild time when my fame had ballooned to pop superstar status.... On many occasions at the North Vista house I'd give impromptu concerts, and this is a recording of one of them, played with dear Alla Rakha accompanying me on tabla just one week after we played the Woodstock Music Festival. Unlike our stage performances, it was more relaxed and informal and one can hear the experimental and fun spirit in it.

The first piece is in an evening raga, Kaushik Kanhara, and the second one is also an evening raga, Bihag. In this I have played both Ada Chautal of 14 beats and also a 8 1/2 beat cycle. It was a very special night and I am most happy to share it with you on this recording recently unearthed in my archive. - Ravi Shankar
