Sun Ra: Storage Space Is The Place / The Shadow World

RTomens, 2017

On a file deletion spree this afternoon having been told by The Machine that I'm running low on storage space and as you know, space is the place where all those photos, files and documents reside so there had to be a culling. Regarding Sun Ra, I had albums on file which also exist on my CD rack so they had to go. My work ground to a halt going through all the Sun Ra tracks. I was distracted, you might say, by his genius and in particular The Shadow World. What an amazing example of the Arkestra at full pelt with Ra ripping through the electro-cosmos fuelled by a band in hyper-drive...

  1. Yep! "The Shadow World" is a key Ra track; he performed that as much as any other song he ever wrote. Abslutely killer.
