Boomkat Product Review:
First time on vinyl in 30 years for another stellar Sun Ra jam recorded in Egypt, 1971, depicting the legendarily free big band at a peak of their powers, no doubt inspired by their surroundings
This 2020 edition would appear to be a first vinyl pressing of the extended set found on Art Yard’s 2008 CD version, packing 3 extra tracks to the original 8. It’s fair to say the near 50 year-old recordings still sound light years ahead of their time, featuring some 13 minutes of mind-bending organ shredding and synth-thrashing from Ra in the utterly wild ‘Shadow World’ and the atonal brilliance of ‘Horizon’, acutely contrasting with a woozier space-jazz ballad ‘Enlightenment’, and the mesmerising bustle of their classic ‘Love In Outer Space’, plus an unmissable version of Ra evergreen ‘Space Is The Place’, and the naturally psychedelic souljazz projection of ‘Satellites Are Spinning’.
