Totally essential deep astro jazz with the full twenty minute version of the title track! One-of-a-kind, out-of-this-world, wonky space anthem! This is a classic album that stands as a definitive exemplar of its genre and Sun Ra is unquestionably one of the most idiosyncratic and innovative musicians to have caught you with the 'new thing'! Out of this world!

Highly recommended!
