Sub-Dwellers – Space Poetry Vol 2

Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music! The work here is all previously unissued, and pulled from rare tapes recorded in 1966, 1968, and 1982 – an amazing discovery in the Ra archive, with a real focus on his more poetic side! The set begins with some wonderfully echoey bits – Ra's vocals in the lead, and some cool abstract sounds and electronics behind him. Other tracks have even more obscure elements in the background, and a few others provide some more familiar jazz elements – but overall, the whole thing's got a wickedly spaced-out feel – very much what you might expect if you'd ever heard the myth of Ra before hearing one of his records! Titles include "The Universe Is Endless", "The Sub-Dwellers", "Music Is A Universal Language", "The Universe Sent Me", "A Cosmic Dimension Of Music", "They Taught Me To Share", and "Worship Of A Statue".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Continuation
Saturn, 1963. New Copy (reissue)

Atlantis
Saturn, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible record from Sun Ra! The session was recorded in New York in the late 60s – and it features Ra playing the "solar sound instrument", which is actually a modified Hohner Clavinet, used here with some really spooky sounds!

Saturn, Mid 50s/1967. New Copy (reissue)
A killer early session from Sun Ra! Ra plays organ and electric piano, and the band includes Gilmore, Pat Patrick, Marshall Allen, Ronnie Boykins, Art Hoyle, Phil Cohran, and Julian Priester. The group's also got an electric bass, which gives the tracks a nice bottom, and a good spooky feel. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Saturn, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
One of the more obscure albums by Ra – but a great one, and a record that features a number of tracks recorded in the same marathon session that also yielded the albums Fate In a Pleasant Mood, Angels And Demons At Play, and We Travel The Spaceways.

Saturn, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest Saturn albums! This one has Ra playing clavioline and echoey "cosmic side drums" with a great spacey sound that was probably arrived at through some primitive reverb and echo techniques!

Jazztime, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
The only full album ever issued by tenor player Rocky Boyd – but a set so great, it's definitely made a name for him over the years! Boyd's got a wonderful tone on the set – sharp and soulful, with an approach to the tenor that almost reminds us of early 60s Jackie McLean – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Turrentine
Time, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most fantastic hardbop albums of all time! Tommy Turrentine was the less-famous trumpet-playing brother of Stanley Turrentine – but he was a hell of a player in his early days, and he cut some amazing records with his brother during the younger years of his career. This is the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pleasure Bent
New Jazz/Prestige, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
One of the few albums ever cut by this incredible tenor sax player – a wonderful talent that we only know from a handful of records – all of which we love!

Cadet, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Incredible work from the amazing Dorothy Ashby – a brilliant set of funky and spiritual tunes, set to full backings from Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans!

Midnight Oil
Prestige, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
One of the few 50s albums as a leader from reedman Jerome Richardson – a hell of a player who made so many other folks' records sound great! Richardson plays both tenor and flute on the album – the latter of which is a real surprise, as it's got a moodier quality than on some of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Popcorn
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous turning point in the career of James Brown – and an album that points the way strongly to the even deeper funk of the 70s! The album's a hard-wailing batch of instrumental tracks played by the legendary James Brown Band of the late 60s – the pre-JBs ensemble that's gone ... LP, Vinyl record album
