I am not clear about what you have said. You first said that you could not download all the songs. Then you said that as though Mangalam alone is not working. Your mention about serial numbers are also not clear. The serial numbers in the blog and serial numbers in mediafire may not be the same but the songs will be. Please download and let me know what is wrong.

I request you not to split small files.

Dear Mr. Vijayagopal,

Neevaada could be completely downloaded and the entire song for more than three minutes is available. S.No.10. Ekkaalaththilum is also being downloaded, and I just now heard the entire song for more than 5 minutes. Please try again and let me know. Both these songs are downloaded by more than 34 and 30 members, respectively and it is being currently downloaded also.

Dear Mr. Vaidyanathan,

Thank you very much for sharing these songs. The quality of recording is excellent. There is no match for MDR. Every syllable / swara embeds the properties of Raga. Really marvelous voice and simple basic music, very soothing. The Shlokam I think starts as Yedukulakambodhi and ends as Reetigowla. Please correct if I am wrong.

The Mangalam is the best piece. I have not heard anyone singing Mangalam like MDR. Thanks again for posting them.

Mr. Vaidyanathan,

First of all many thanks to you for posting the wonderful recordings of MDR's live concert. The quality is excellent. There is no musician till date nor will be for another 100 years that would match him. His pure form of singing, with bhava and elaboration of Ragas is unmatched. It appears he embeds the properties of bhava, laya, emotions etc. in each syllable and each swaras. It is simply taking music to the elements. The shlokam sang in Yadukulakambodhi is excellent and I think he finishes the shlokam in Reetigowla. Correct me if I am wrong.. I have downloaded all the songs including Mangalam. Again, I have not heard anyone singing Mangalam like MDR - Madyamavathi Ragam and is very melodious.
