    Mystical magical mid-sixties album from cult Saturnian jazz hero Sun Ra!

    Featuring a classic cast of Arkestra muscians including Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Pat Patrick, and Ronnie Boykins, this is one of the last truly great 1960s Sun Ra abums to be re-issued and it really shows how his move to New York got his creative juices going and helped him lead the Arkestra in this loose-limbed, adventurous astral music!
