Sun Ra
Hello Mr. Schimmel

This one would go under the very special category for record store day releases. A recording of an interview Sun Ra gave in 1990 with Jez Nelson from Jazz FM. Once they had finished the interview Nelson asked if he would like to play something for them, he happily embraced the opportunity, said “Hello Mr Schimmel” and began to improvise. First time this has been released, collectors gem.

Sun Ra & His Solar Arkestra
The Magic City

Fully restored and then some, this pressing of Sun Ra's behemoth Magic City goes long on its history via free jazz aficionado Ben Young. Notable for its near-thirty minute skronk sprawl title track, the record became something of a kept secret, the piece never getting a live outing due to its unique, impermeable sound. 

Sun Ra
Singles (The Definitive 45s Collection Vol. 1: 1952-1991)

Definitive collection gets bandied about quite a lot, but this one is undeniably so. Covering the singles from Sun Ra released between 1952 and 1991. All remastered and packaged with rare photos, the original artworks, and session notes track by track. A pretty good way of learning the mysterious and mental ins and outs of the inimitable Sun Ra.

Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity Arkestra
My Brother The Wind Vol. 1

This 1970 album features Sun Ra excitedly wrenching some seriously wild and transportive sonics out of his new Moog synth, backed by Arkestra stalwarts John Gilmore, Marshall Allen and Danny Davis. As with their recent reissue of The Magic City, Cosmic Myth have done a superb job with this 2LP version, adding the side-long Space Probe and alternate takes of the funky single The Perfect Man. The entirely different Vol. 2 has been more widely reissued and is better known, so don’t let the near-identical sleeve confuse you!

Sun Ra And His Arkestra
To Those Of Earth… And Other Worlds

To Those of Earth….and Other Worlds is a compilation of Sun Ra and his Arkestra chosen by DJ Giles Peterson. Sun Ra is a true original - a Jazz eccentric decked out in gold lame who apparently came from outer space. His commitment to music is not to be questioned however, due to his massive 125 album back catalogue. This collection follows up the In The Orbit Of Ra compilation which featured tracks chosen by avant-garde saxophonist, Marshall Allen.

Sun Ra
Space Is The Place

Space Is The Place, the afro-futurist film Sun Ra made is a remarkable watch, mixing plenty of familiar film tropes with the sheer weird wonder of Sun Ra. This soundtrack to the film is a remarkable mixture of chants, harsh synth and free-blasting Arkestra jazz. Widely regarded as a masterpiece, and a perfect entry point into the world of this singular artist.
