    Twenty years after its first publication, Art Yard present the fully revised 2nd edition of Hartmut Geerken’s long unobtainable book 'Omniverse – Sun Ra', a definitive hitch-hiker’s guide to the Sun Ra galaxy! Here as a hardback portrait 304 Pages with a French fold cover! This new, completely revised edition features: - Previously...
    A mixture of live recording and studio post-production, 'On Jupiter' sounds unique to any other album Sun Ra made. The arkestra reflects a disco pulse right back on itself, and delivers one of the most cohesive albums of their career. The title track is a masterpiece of gentle atonal harmony, while 'UFO' pushes along at a cracking disco-ish pace with...
    Nidhamu is an avant-garde epiphany full of wild, pitch-shifting synth experiments and proto-Star Wars sound effects, it's quite a shock to the system. 'Discipline 11' and the title track alone are worth the price of admission, blending together head-spinning jazzed-up electronics and adventurous sound sculpting. Following on immediately, Dark...
    Recorded in 1969-1970 ‘Space Probe’ is one of the rarer and more unusual shards of the Sun Ra discography.

    Limited, vinyl only issue of this thoroughly cosmic, intergalactic jazz experience from the one and only Sun Ra. Recorded at Slug's Saloon, New York, July 1972.
    Recorded in Italy in 1978 this is Sun Ra at his most obscure. The group features John Gilmore on sax, Luqman Ali on drums and Michael Ray on trumpet.
    Legendary session recorded in Milan in 1978, this quartet recording gives John Gilmore, Michael Ray and Luqman Ali the space to improvise and solo more extensively than with the full Arkestra. The result is an astounding synergy of individual virtuosity and group interplay, but it's the man himself who arguably steals the show with the rhythmic atmospherics...
