Press Release :
The third deluxe RA reissue in the new O-Card format from the UMS, released in conjunction with EL SATURN Records is here: A superb reissue of a delicious, seldom heard Saturn Records document from 1970- replete with two alternate takes of a previously unissued classic AND an "Untitled" piece from the original '77 sessions... all available for the first time on CD!

"Sun Ra's career-long committment to his Arkestra allowed the pianist and bandleader little time for the elaboration of less populous projects. There were brief, tantalising glimpses, however, into his small group concept-including a rash of recordings made in the mid 1970s. There are, for instance, two great double-LPs of quartet music, tenor saxophonist John Gilmore gloriously forward, made for the Italian Horo label in 1978. A year prior, a stripped-down group made a set of studio recordings focused on standard jazz songbook material, as well as some original music by Ra, that was issued on Saturn as SOME BLUES BUT NOT THE KIND THATS BLUE.

As a special treat, to augment this extremely rare Saturn LP and show how Ra developed the idea for one of his arrangements, two alternative versions of the poignant "I'll Get By" are included- taken from a session slated May 3, 1973 by Gilmore. In the distance, the muffled remnant of a previous track appears, taped over on this home recording, the almost in-sync backwards drums providing a low-key element of surreality." - John Corbett / Chicago- October, 2007
