SUN RA: The Eternal Myth: The early Music History Of Sun Ra Part 1 1921-1958 (14 CD boxed set and pa
For scholars and those interested in the influences and history of Sun Raís music, this is a great release. It sold poorly on its release because it contained not only Raís early work as an arranger and composer and his appearances as a sideman but also the pre- Arkestra ensembles made before he formed his signature band. Ra himself talks you through the history between tracks and itís a great document if you want to know what else was happening outside the obvious usual history of jazz that influenced Ra and his generation - but until near the end, itís not Arkestra material. In fact volume 1 goes up to the formation of the Arkestra and covers the early Ďavant gardeí experiments, and work with some future Arkestra regulars. Itís a serious and important collection, but not Sun Ra as usually advertised. We still have copies. Unhappily Volume 2 never materialised and the label no longer exists.
With this update only we are offering copies for £50 UK, £52 Europe and £55 rest the world.
