To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Sun Ra’s galactic-sploitation epic Space Is The Place, we at Harte Recordings are making potato salad. Just kidding, however we ARE truly celebrating it by releasing an epic homage to Space Is The Place. It will be a celebration in the form of a beautifully bound, limited edition hardcover book. It will contain the movie on DVD as well as a CD of the mighty soundtrack. And the other bonus material will include:

· New DVD commentary on the film from Producer Jim Newman
· Essays from Screenplay writer Josh Smith and Director John Coney
· A book introduction by Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips
· An interview with Ray Johnson (who played THE OVERSEER)
· Dozens of never before seen photos taken both on and off set during the making of the movie

There will be 3000 copies made of this epic celebration of one of the most intriguing space-films-made-by-a-spaceman. Through PledgeMusic you can order early and have the opportunity of also getting some choice, limited edition items made specifically for this release including a reproduction of the original movie poster, a Space Is The Place tee-shirt, high-end issue of the Space Is The Place soundtrack on vinyl, and the ability to have your name as a pledger, duly noted in the book.
