      Recorded in 1969-1970 ‘Space Probe’ is one of the rarer and more unusual shards of the Sun Ra discography. We should all be aware that the Saturn-born alien was a master of early electronic music (specifically the monstrous Mini Moog), but here we get a shocking twenty-minute side which sees the befuddling legend take the sound into the depths of outer space. 50s and 50s sci fi soundtracks would be a key comparison at this point, but the music Sun Ra creates is deeper, weirder and altogether more enjoyable than listening to most sci fi soundtracks. The sounds might be similar, but Sun Ra flexes his creativity beautifully, taking us on a vibrant, neon journey into the stars. Elsewhere we treated to some sickeningly good log-drum jamming from James Jacson and flute playing from Marshall Allen, but for me it’s ALL about the electronics. Do not miss this!
