Sun Ra - Disco 3000 (USA 1978)

The Sun Ra Discography.

Of the seven discs in the ArtYard in A Box set, this is by far my favourite. This Quartet(probably the smallest group Sun Ra played with) kicks things off with the mammoth 26 minute Title track. A wild ride of Disco tinged electrofunk cum jazz cum avant-garde chaos and is excellent. I was captured throughout and really enjoyed the primitive sounding electro beats and the cool sax and trumpet solos interspersed with some pretty wild moments from Ra on organ, Synth and Rhythm machine.  So impressed, a real quality jam as is The remainder of the album . The best of the period I have heard so far. Rating 4.5/5.
