Description

2-LP set Recorded live in New York in 1973 with a 25 piece Arkestra, What Planet Is This comes from a time when Sun Ra had just exploded onto the wider music scene, touring all over Europe, and even teaching a class at the University of California called The Black Man In The Cosmos . Although many get caught up in his stage act and claims that he was from another planet, perhaps it can all be read as a simple code message to others to be anyone you want to be, regardless of race, or indeed, planet. Highlights of this recording include the ten-minute full-blown Love In Outer Space , featuring unfettered organ, horns and a wall-of-sound approach to percussion, and the wild and whirling Shadow World .
