Sun Ra - The Other Side Of The Sun (USA 1980)

The Sun Ra Discography.

Another recent arrival to add to my burgeoning Sun Ra Collection and we find Ra and the boys in a very melodic mood as they swing their way through an impressive "Space Fling" taking us all the way back to the Arkestra's early days. Then we get a lovely version of  "Flamingo" before we get treated to a very funky version of the perennial "Space is the Place" and a unique version it is too. "The Sunny Side Of The Street" is another extended swing workout, with the album closing with another Ra Original in the slightly more chaotic style we are use to. Overall a fairly accessible set from Ra and most enjoyable. Rating 3.5/5.
