Sun Ra - Cosmo Earth Fantasy(Sub Underground Vol 1&2) (USA 1974/5/2012?)

Latest Sun Ra Arrival.



Latest arrival from Sun Ra, this recent release combines two ultra rare Ra LPs from 74'and 75', Cosmo Earth Fantasy and What's New, although the recordings themselves are dated somewhat earlier. Quite a mix of styles on offer here with the set kicking off with the mammoth 22 minute improvised title track which will challenge but reveals some quite interesting passages. The rest is a bit more conventional sounding with some nice piano from Ra in places and reasonable remastering to give a fairly listenable release. A very worthwhile Sun Ra set and gets my rating of 4/5.
