Sagram - Pop Explosions Sitar Style From Sagram [1972]



Clem Alford  was considered as the best western sitar player of his time.In 1970 he formed a group named Sargam with two other musicians - Jim Moyes (guitar) and Keshav Sathe (tabla) - and this innovative trio recorded an album inappropriately released as Pop Explosion Sitar Style! under the band name Sagram (Sargam is the name of a note in an Indian scale), mispelt by the Windmill recording company, who issued the recording without the bands consent or knowledge.The front cover picture is not of Clem. The whole thing was got up to look 'sexy' and 'cool' to improve sales. And of course it's not a 'pop explosion' but a beautiful Anglo Indian folk sound.
