Mainly issued on cassette, so there is 30 minutes of Alap, and 30 minutes of Gat in Teental.

I have discussed this on Sangeet before, how the Indian music industry has been dominated by cassettes. Even on CDs, note how tracks usually can be split evenly to fill 45 or 60 minute cassettes.

The Golden Collection EMI 1996
Ghulam Ali (born 5 December 1940) is a Pakistani ghazal singer of the Patiala Gharana. He was a disciple of Bade Ghulam Ali Khan (elder Ghulam Ali Khan). Ali was also trained by Bade Ghulam Ali's younger brothers – Barkat Ali Khan and Mubarak Ali Khan.

The ghazal is a form of amatory poem or ode, originating in Arabic poetry. In the Subcontinent, ghazals are usually sung in Urdu. Ghazals range in style from pop to light classical, where they can be considered analogous to Thumris, but with a stronger emphasis on lyrics. On this spectrum, Ghulam Ali mostly tends towards the classical side (particularly in a live setting). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghazal
