4 - 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.

9 - SUN RA - MEDIA DREAM - (LP) 
ART YARD


This is the companion to Disco 3000, made on the same classic Italian quartet tour with John Gilmore, Michael Ray (trumpet) and the minimal but perfect Luqman Ali (drums). Ra himself plays piano and electronic keyboards, including the mysterious Crumar Mainman, which Ra describes as like a piano, organ, clavichord, cello, violin and brass instruments and which also, importantly, has a facility for pre-programmed bass-lines and electronic percussion, which Ra uses constantly and to great effect in this small ensemble setting and seldom, if ever, elsewhere. The best of this collection (most of CD1) is luminous: very electronic, often rhythmical and melodic, always economical and making every sound count. These tracks are like no other jazz ensemble and, although recognisable as Ra - who else could think of, and then get away with, this - unlike any other Ra ensemble either. Ra makes the machines do amazing, visionary things while the band exercises restraint, remaining always in focus. In between, there are piano, saxophone, trumpet and drum vignettes, fresh and perfectly judged; this real was a fine band. This places the original vinyl release (and related releases, Sound Mirror and Disco 3000) back into the context of the concerts, from which they were drawn. An important addition to the Sun Ra canon, since it is a rare document of an unusual Ra project that produced three classic late 70s LPs. Beautifully packaged and well annotated.

Touring the world with his formidable Arkestra, he represented and affirmed a new vision of Black history and culture, embodied and spread a new and powerfully influential Black philosophy, and revolutionised music with sounds from beyond the purple star zone.Ra accepted no limitation imposed on him by earthly powers: his vista was the universe, his travel was interplanetary, his music borne along the spaceways as he delivered messages of light to a sleeping world.

TRANSPARENCY


Last in the series of 6 "Lost Reel" albums, this one captures the master live at the Gibus in Paris on October 18, 1973. Recorded on stage by the group's drummer, this ultra-rarity went unheard for 37 years and was previously unknown to collectors or discographers. The centerpiece of the recording is a 28-minute vocal "cosmo-drama" between Sun Ra and June Tyson where they meet somewhere in space on the road to destiny and have a brilliant and funny discussion while the Arkestra plays continuously behind them.

19 - SUN RA - THE UNIVERSE SEND 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
