Could someone who happens to have a copy of a 1969 EMI LP entitled "Rythms of India" with Ahmedjan Thirakwa and Amir Hussain Khan confirm the contents of the recording with the label and the liner notes. My copy appears to have Amir Hussain Khan playing tintal, rupak, and jhaptal(20:10), and Ahmedjan Thirakwa (17:12) playing tintal and ektal(not rupak as the liner notes claim). If anyone has this album or a copy of it and could definitely say who is playing what, that would be very much appreciated. Record companies and thier distributors were known to clip and otherwise mangle performances and to mis-attribute or switch attributions (more so with recordings of non-western and "ethnic" music, often leaving out the attributions altogether). I have a slight suspicion that the performances could have been switched on this particular recording but I need to know for certain.
