Sun Ra - Sound Sun pleasure!! (Saturn SR 512 (1970))

Latest Sun Ra CD.

Well the CD finally arrived and listening again to the original Sound Sun Pleasure!! tracks, I am even more impressed, but I have already spoken of them and I actually brought this set for the 7 bonus tracks from the out of print "Deep Purple" Album. Possibly some of the earliest Sun Ra recordings they sound rather primitive compared to the later sessions, although they are apparently home recordings. Sun Ra solo on his piano on "...interlude" and  accompanied by violin on "Deep Purple" and bass on "Can This Be Love" The rest is a set of vocal standards with piano, bass and drums. All songs are not unpleasant but would have  bloomed much brighter as studio recordings.
