Sun Ra Of Abstract Dreams

Strut
  • 1. Island In The Sun
  • 2. New Dawn
  • 3. Unmask The Batman
  • 4. I’ll Wait For You

Another exclusive from the vast catalogue of cosmic jazz pioneer Sun Ra: a previously unreleased radio session most likely recorded at the WXPN FM radio studios in Philadelphia, 1974-5! This newly discovered session features a new version of Ra’s earlier ‘Island In The Sun’, a romping, raucous rendition of ‘Unmask The Batman’ and the first studio recording of ‘I’ll Wait For You’.
