Sun Ra & His Arkestra
The Other Side of the Sun
Sweet Earth 1003 - re-issue LP on 180g vinyl 

The Sun Ra Arkestra looks both forwards and backwards in time on this obscure small label LP. Ten years earlier, one could not have imagined Ra and his men romping through "On the Sunny Side of the Street" or reinventing "Flamingo." However, those versions certainly sound quite original, and there is no mistaking the band for any other orchestra on "Space Fling," "Manhattan Cocktail" and the trademark "Space Is the Place." The music on this album features a version of the Arkestra consisting of six reeds (including John GIlmore and Marshall Allen, three trumpets (including Michael Ray and Eddie Gale, two trombones (with a young Robin Eubanks), the French horn of Vincent Chancey, guitarist Dale Williams, three bassists, four percussionists, singer June Tyson and the leader's keyboards. A stimulating set. Recorded 11/1/78 and 1/4/79 at Blue Rock Studios, New York

"The impossible is the watchword of the greater Space Age. The Space Age cannot be avoided and the SPACE MUSIC is the key to understanding the meaning of the IMPOSSIBLE and every other enigma." — Sun Ra
