Bringing together Ra highlights from over 25 years of music, this special release marks what would have been Sun Ra’s 100th birthday - a new collection curated by the longest serving member of the Arkestra & current bandleader, Marshall Allen.

With a catalogue of well over 100 albums, Sun Ra forged his own direction in music from the mid ‘50s until his passing in 1993, injecting space age cosmic philosophy, ancient Egyptian history & lyrical poetry into a unique & freeform jazz sound. features an exclusive previously unreleased Sun Ra track from the Art Yard archives, the acoustic ‘Trying To Put The Blame On Me’ recorded live in Rome in 1977, along with a previously unreleased Part 1 of ‘Reflects Motion’ from 1962 & an unheard extended version of ‘Island In The Sun’ from the late ‘60s. an outstanding selection for both collectors & new fans alike.
