The second part of PoppyDisc's ongoing series of the genius of Sun Ra on vinyl.The Arkestra moves into ever looser, more abstract ground as the percussion becomes more varied and moves ever closer. Ra then sets up a dark melodic theme, while the Arkestra weaves a series of jaunty, blues-tinged solos into the groove. 'Nubia', 'Africa' and 'Aiethopia' continue this excursion into a mystical, rhythm-based territory.

The Arkestra utilizes the same ominous, simmering percussion beds, now augmented by more exotic instruments like Pat Patrick's 'space lute', which gives a playfully sinister sound to 'Africa'.This powerful, multi-faceted music is a great place to start if you are just beginning to travel with Sun Ra, or indeed a great way to continue the journey.
