SUN RA - THE ANTIQUE BLACKS (CD)


"Another much sought after and long unavailable title recorded in 1974 with a smallish ensemble consisting (probably) of stalwarts Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Danny David, James Jacson, Akh Tal Ebah, Clifford Jarvis, Artakatune, and a new electric guitarist, Sly, and released on Saturn in the same year. This sounds like a studio recording and carefully thought out - most of the compositions appear only on this record (apart from versions of 'Nature's God' and 'Space Is The Place'), and include a chain of very interesting (accompanied /interpolated) spoken texts: 'There is a Change in the Air,' 'The Antique Blacks,' 'The ridiculous 'I' and the Cosmos 'Me'' as well as a very long and scary coda to 'Space is the Place.' Ra plays Rocksichord and Moog throughout. Theatrical and political; a fascinating release." (label info)
