Clem Alford, who went on to record a couple of solo albums, was also a member of Magic Carpet, who released an acclaimed album of Eastern-influenced music the same year as this Sagram album. In fact the group was actually called Sargam. The budget label got the name wrong! Clem Alford was an excellent sitar player.

Clem Alford was a classically-trained sitar player who spent time in India to enhance his knowledge of Indian classical music prior to joining the interesting but short-lived Magic Carpet in the early seventies. Upon their demise he recorded two solo albums of sitar music which are not easy to track down. The first is now a collector's item, and has been reissued on CD with additional material. The second, which is even harder to find, was recorded exclusively for use in music libraries. Prior to this in 1972 he'd recorded an album under the name Sagram.
