✨✧ Sun RaAstro Black (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Impulse/Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the darkest Sun Ra albums of the early 70s – and a set that's also a bit unusual in his catalog as well! The album was issued during Ra's run with Impulse Records – a period that mostly saw the label reissue previous records from the Saturn catalog – save for a rare few like this one, which was an unusual all-new batch of material for Impulse! Because of that, it's been a bit overlooked in later years – maybe missed as less authentic, but actually some of the most striking sounds that Ra created at the time! There's a very strong tension here between electric and acoustic elements – not in the usual fusion-based way, but instead with this vibe that often has the electric instruments providing darker areas of sound, while the woodwinds and percussion have a way of humanizing the proceedings. June Tyson's also at her moodiest on the title track, "Astro Black" – and other titles include "Hidden Spheres", "Discipline 99", and the long improvisation "Cosmo Fire". CD

Sun RaCymbals/Symbols Sessions – New York City 1973 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99
A lost slice of work from Sun Ra's early 70s years on Impulse Records – one of the few new recordings created for his association with that label (most of the titles were reissues of earlier Saturn albums) – but one that was never issued at the time! Cymbals saw some release later, during the 90s – but this package really expands on that album by adding in a whole extra set of recordings from what appear to be the same sessions – and which really flesh out the vibe of the performance! The core group is a sextet – with Ra at the helm on some of his cool electric keyboards – including minimoog, rocksichord, and Gibson Kalamazoo – with acoustic work from Eloe Omoe on bass clarinet, Tal Ebah on trumpet, Ronny Boykins on bass, Harry Ar on drums, and Derek Morris on congas. Much of the core music explores a tension between Ra's cosmic keys and the more earthy sound of the acoustic instruments – but the added material here opens up some nicely different moods, and makes the whole thing explode with deep colors. Titles on Cymbals include "Land Of The Day Star", "Thoughts Under A Dark Blue Light", "The Mystery Of Two", and "The World Of The Invisible" – and added tracks include "Space Landing", "Of Drastic Measures", "Of Otherness", "The Universe Is Calling", and "Destination Of The Known Universe".

Sun RaPine Street Theatre – Oct 28, 1988 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Jackpot, 1988. New Copy 2LP ... $35.99
A never-issued live set from the great last chapter in Sun Ra's career – that moment when the Arkestra was finally getting the global attention it deserved, and was working with even more confidence than before! During the period, Ra had this great way of folding in older strands of jazz with the group's always-creative vibe – swinging at times, soaring at others – and working with a larger ensemble here that includes Michael Ray and Eddie Gale on trumpets, Tyrone Hill on trombone, Knoel Scott on alto, John Gilmore on tenor, Danny Ray Thompson on baritone, John Ore on bass, and Bruce Edwards on electric guitar. Ra plays keyboards and piano,a nd June Tyson sings a bit – and Marshal Allen handles alto, piccolo, flute, and oboe. Titles include "Sunset On The Nile", "Space Medley", "The Shadow World", "Stardust From Tomorrow", "Blue Lou", and a few long improvisations! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousOther Side Of Sun Part 2 – Sun Records Curated By Record Store Day Vol 5 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Sun/ORG, Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Don't think Sun Records here – think SSS International – as most of this work comes from the late 60s efforts of producer Shelby Singleton, whose soul labels were bought by Sam Phillips and folded into Sun International! There's lots of great Tennessee soul grooves here – most of them pretty rare – and titles include "Wait Until Tomorrow" by The United Notions, "All I Want Is You" by Betty Harris, "I Can't Be All Bad" by Johnny Adams, "How Much Can A Man Take" by Big John Hamilton, "You Better Get Gone Baby" by The Jesters, "Hanging Heavy In My Mind" by Doris Allen, "You See Me" by Robert Parker, "Mama's Baby" by Marilyn Haywood, and "There's A DJ In Your Town" by Samson & Delilah.
