Three “incredibly rare” 7-inches, originally released on Sun Ra‘s own Saturn label in super-low quantities, are now getting reissued in a special box-set from Jazzman Records.
“We’ve selected six otherworldly songs from Sun Ra’s back catalogue of incredibly rare singles. Originally issued in tiny runs of as few as fifty copies on his own Saturn label, these 45s were often hand distributed by Ra and his legendary Arkestra, meaning that only the most seasoned collectors have ever laid hands on an original Saturn 45.”
The box-set itself will be limited to 999 hand-numbered copies, each pressed on glow-in-the-dark vinyl. I haven’t seen this offer anywhere but on the Jazzman website, so you better be quick with your order!
I still feel terrible about never having finished my review for the fantastic debut The Strange Dreams of Paul White (buy it!). However, it’s not my bad conscious that led to the writing of this article, it’s once again the love for Paul’s music.
Beautiful track with samples from Todd Rundgren’s A Dream goes on forever (I wonder if that’s some sort of self-reference) and you can download it – or become one of the lucky 500 to have the limited 7-inch in your shelf.
