3 - SUN RA - EARLY SINGLES 1955-1962 - (LP) 
BLACK ROOSTER


Sun Ra started his own label El Saturn (or Saturn) in 1957 in order to release his own recordings, as well as those featuring his Arkestra backing local R&B and doo-wop groups. Though the genres showcased on this release are more pop than the world has come to expect from Sun Ra, the vibe and feel is purely cosmic, producing some of the wildest, strangest R&B ever created on this side of the sun. This DOUBLE-LP compiles Saturn singles and rare early Sun Ra recordings in different forms/group settings including the Cosmic Rays, the Qualities, Sun Ra and his Myth-Science Arkestra, and more from 1955-1962. A must have for all true Sun Ra collectors, this is a comprehensive retrospective on the early days of this legendary music guru packed into a monstrous double LP.

Last in the series of 6 "Lost Reel" albums, this one captures the master live at the Gibus in Paris on October 18, 1973.

14 - SUN RA - THE UNIVERSE SENT ME - (CD) 
TRANSPARENCY


Volume 5 of "The Lost Reel Collection" features music from two separate tapes. The first tape is from a 1972 short recording at the Seaport Museum in New York City. The acoustics sound similar to the likes an outdoor concert. The featured track is Discipline 27-ll, which is purely instrumental and may be the earliest recording of this particular version. In 1973, Ras declamation like "Life is Splendid" and "What Planet Is This?" was added on top of the music theme. The second tape is from a 1973 recording in Paris, France, although the acoustics are quite different, it's a natural segue from the Seaport Museum tape opening with the Discipline 27-ll theme and the by-now more familiar declamation which we title as "The Universe Sent Me". The beauty of the "reed" section is clearly heard during this track due to the apparent close proximity of the tape machine and the microphone setup.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Outer Spaceways Incorporated 02. Untitled Improvisation 03. Discipline 27 (instrumental) 04. The Universe Sent Me 05. Discipline 99 06. Watusi 07. Untitled Improvisation
