SUN RA ARKESTRA - LONE STAR ROADHOUSE AND AFRICAN STREET




"Lone Star Roadhouse and African Street Festival" is the fifth volume in the Transparency Sun Ra DVD series. Released in 2006, the DVD offers two concerts from 1989.


Both concerts were video-taped from the audience which means that the audio isn't perfect, and that the video images move around a lot. The good thing, however, is that the quality is very good. This is no third generation copy. My guess is that it's taken from the master recording.


I just love these recordings. The Arkestra does not just play a concert. They bring a show. It's DVDs like this that enable us to experience what these shows were (and are) like.
