SUN RA and His INTERGALACTIC SOLAR RESEARCH ARKESTRA - Live in Helsinki 1971 - 2x CDs with DVD set

SUN RA and the ARKESTRA - Live in Helsinki 1971

Transparency Double (2x) CD Set with DVD (Region 0)

 The complete documentation of a rare Finnish performance by the Sun Ra Arkestra - the material recorded in Helsinki on October 14, 1971 is presented here in a 2 CD package with a bonus DVD! The CDs feature both the first and second sets of the evening - and was recorded by the Finnish broadcasting company, so the quality is very good and well-recorded, with as much clarity as some of the better-known live Arkestra albums of the time. The DVD features an TV interview with Sun Ra, recorded in black and white during the same trip to Finland -- really great footage! (DVD is Region 0.)

The group's in wonderful form -- a fairly large lineup, given the Scandinavian trip - and they run through modes that are spacey, spiritual, and straight. Players include Kwame Hadi, Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Danny Davis, James Jacson, Pat Patrick, Danny Ray Thompson and June Tyson sings some really wonderful vocals on the recording as well.

Titles include "Love In Outer Space", "Watusi", "Enlightenment", "Theme Of The Stargazers", "To Nature's God", "Somewhere Else", "Second Stop Is Jupiter", and "The Satellites Are Spinning".

Transparency Release - 2x CD + DVD Set - Sun Ra and the Arkestra - Live in Helsinki 1971 - Avant Garde/Experimental/ Classic Jazz - Double/2 x CD with DVD SET - PRICE: $25.00
