What Are You Listening To?
^^I don’t know this record or Golden Avatar at all, but your description makes me think of one by an obscure band called Ananta – Night and Daydream. It was distributed on the streets by Hare Krishna’s mostly, I think – never sold - made in 1978. The chief songwriter was a Krishna devotee – a Venezuelan muso named Ilan Chester who is still knocking around the biz and doing quite nicely thank you, but who has since moved on from, while remaining inspired by Krishna principles.

Someone had plenty of dollars – it’s a ‘benefit’ album yet well put together and packaged, and there’s quite a line-up. I listened to it a couple of weeks ago after many years – don’t like the music and it’s easy to discern the underlying messages under the guise of being a contemporary ‘rock’ album (some people called it prog - I don’t agree). I always feel a bit insulted when people want to slide their beliefs in through the back door, so to speak - don't do that - it's rude, and it's insidious (and widely practiced in all walks of life, I know). They were even opportunistic enough to add a little note on the back which is quite misleading -  “For their inspiration and help with our Worldwide projects, special thanks to Carlos Santana, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley". None of whom had anything at all to do with the music or the album! Anyway - rant over and IMHO the best track on it ... hear those little bells??  Big Grin

track would have fitted well on the Golden Avatar album Ruby, thanks for the share and making us aware that Golden Avatar wasn't the only leap into popular music that their devotees ventured

I vaguely remember seeing this album back in SA at some point.
