In an alternative universe, Sun Ra is as beloved a jazz icon as Duke Ellington. Luckily, we do not live in that world. We live in the world where he is a unique genius, probably never to be matched. An inspiration to so many from The MC5 to Sonic Youth to Lou Reed, this album is an exotica-tinged sideways look at his usual innovative work. His debut on a “major” label, the album was produced by the legendary Tom Wilson (Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, The Velvet Underground, The Mothers of Invention, The Animals). Pressed on heavyweight orange psychedelic splatter vinyl, this is a must for any record collection!
