Just dreamt about you.
I returned home, present day, to find you, a 26-27 year old sitting at my station with his rig connected.
We got talking and as I hadn’t yet recognized that younger version of you, I JUMPED from the chair, 13 feet in air (it was a dream) on hearing your name and with trembling hands took out the cassettes.
Sensations being the top!
I asked that when had you created that master piece.
Very demurely and with a proper blush, (I was nearly twice your age, you see!) you answered, “At 19.”
I woke up with tears; happy tears!
Today is going to be one hell of a day!
Going to request AshokJi, yet once again, to get them converted to MP3. (Sorry about the piracy.)
One of the gladdest days of my life! The music of my life, Sensations, found!!! after being lost for 10 odd years! Last time, it got lost for ~5 years. This is fate! This cassette has been playing on and on in my life for the last 20+ years!
But, where are you, Nandu Bhende Sir? :(
Babla V Shah Disco Dandia, dubbed and rearranged by my father, Rajesh Kumar Sharma! Please forgive the piracy.
Digitizing them all, ASAP!
Messages from/to Bhende Sir:
Could one get a CD of Sensations?
My cassette is there but it is pretty much worn out! (It was lost, I did not know.)
Thanks for the answer.

A CD was never made commercially available. Let me c if I can do anything about it.
Great to know that something one did way back in the eighties is still being heard!
All the best,
“Being HEARD!!! Almost all of the song’s chords were “researched” and then noted down on the cover page / jacket during 1995. The arrangement “studied” and various instruments assigned to friends with various talents. We were to recreate it!”
An email that was to become a letter never sent.
2. my best of Babla in a 90 minute Sony tape,
3. Jayanti and Honey’s 1985 hits and a
4. 90 minute tape of our band’s “Eruptions’, if it could be called thus.I had got these 4 MOST precious cassettes to get them converted into MP3 and she seems to have forgotten where she kept them in stead of giving them to the neighbour who has this facility.
I have been pestering you for the last few years and shall continue to do so.
