The former "Sat Peter Singh" here, now living in Portland, ME and still making music (www.peteralexander.us). I just found four copies of the LP in my basement, and one of them appears to be in near perfect condition. I'll make mp3 files and post them on my own website in the near future. Glad that these songs are still in circulation! --Peter Alexander 01/01/11

I just found out about this link from my friend, Peter Alexander. We recorded this album in NYC in the summer of '73, fueled by Häagen-Dazs ice cream (there were only two flavors then, carob and honey) and an utterly uncomplicated love affair with God. It was a magical time.
Having now listened to the Song of Bliss for the first time in over 25 years (that's me playing the piano, a gorgeous 9 foot Steinway in a very cool Manhattan recording studio), I'm once again swept away by Singh Kaur's voice. It's a good voice, but even more, there was something so pure and amazing that came out of her when she sang, you could feel angels swarming just to get close. Wow...
Here's another link Peter sent me to the same track. This one has a little less flutter and a little more rumble: http://waxidermy.com/images/The_Khalsa_String_Band-Sing_Of_Bliss.mp3
So Peter, thank you for sharing such a special gift - a great start to what feels like will be a wonderful year.
