Includes liner notes by Timothy White, George Harrison, and Ravi Shankar.It’s indicative of the odd position that Ravi Shankar occupies in Western musical culture that this four-CD set,  In Celebration, which might otherwise find its way into the rarefied surroundings of classical music departments, or world music racks, instead often ends up in rock and pop sections, right alongside releases such as Crossroads by Eric Clapton or Dreams by the Allman Brothers Band. This four-CD set, produced by Shankar’s longtime friend and admirer George Harrison, presents a surprisingly rich and diverse overview of Shankar’s career across 38 years, from the end of the 1950s through 1995 — although the earliest track here goes back to 1957, most of the material dates from the late 1960s through the 1980s, the period in which Shankar was at the peak of his fame and popularity with younger Western listeners.
