This album was recorded at a series of Sun Ra appearances at jazz festivals in Germany in 1970 and stands as a documentation of jazz history; with an unusual instrumentation, Sun Ra’s avant-garde 21-piece big band creates noises and percussive sounds that are out of this world.
“… combines frenzied drumming and marching tunes with reed-shredding solos and psychedelic electronic noisemaking.” – The New Yorker
“… ideally captures Sun Ra and his Arkestra at its most otherworldly self. Individual and collective sounds reach for ears at times beyond human comprehension … offers the next best thing to what it must have been like to experience the path that Ra offered his listeners in a live concert, perhaps the most uninhibited platform for his musical message.” – All About Jazz
“I play space music. When one day humans on far away planets hear the sounds of cosmic beings, the music will seem familiar, for while they were on Earth they had heard Sun Ra.” – Sun Ra
