The landmark session by one of the most unique figures in black music is a shower of sounds that have come straight from another world. Sun Ra (and the various groups he led) were as prolific as they were innovative. By conservative estimates they produced around 200 recordings over a fifty-year period, and the early ’70s was as fertile a time as any. In a typical burst of creative energy Ra and an ensemble he dubbed The Solar-Myth Arkestra produced enough material to be spread over two albums or two volumes, that amount to a kind of sonic odyssey which has no end of twists and turns, as befits a group of such singular character.
