- sun ra and his omniverse jet-set arkestra: beyond the purple star zone / oblique parallax
(2010, cd, uk, art yard cd 005)
In 1981 and 1982, Sun Ra released "Beyond The Purple Star Zone" and "Oblique Parallax" on his private Saturn label.
The discs were pressed in limited runs, and were sold at concerts.
Art Yard has now re-released these albums on one CD. A beautiful package, combined with music that is not from this world.
There's a lot of solo Sun Ra synth material on it. Incredible stuff.
Most of this, if not all of this, can probably be found on the Transparancy Detroit Jazz Center Box, but still an essential release.
