SUN RA ARKESTRA: Myron's Ballroom (triple CD)
A complete, great, Arkestra gig recorded in LA in 1981, with the classic band, the Moog and June Tyson. A long, winding journey that covers all known bases from barrelhouse to cosmic, free to super synchronised, hyper-energised to coolly laid back and taking in all points between; and then beyond. New material, many Ra classics (inc. Astro Black, Space is the Place, Watusi), a wild Moog solo, and a heated atmosphere that shimmers with life and wakefulness. After the first 35 minutes the sound (which was OK) suddenly improves a lot (and gets louder) and there are occasional drop-outs, but none of this matters; the gig is unstoppable. And great. None of these Transparency Ra CDs have any track or band data, just a few nice photographs and a few of Ra's poems. 184 Minutes. Temporarily out of stock.
