It is appropriate that this double album is being released by Leo Records' Golden Years imprint. Recorded in New York in July, 1973, it features as large an Arkestra as any that Sun Ra put together and includes all of his key collaborators. What Planet Is This? comes from the crucial period when Sun Ra had progressed from cult status to wider recognition, a process aided by a strange alliance with the MC5. But unlike the '50s and '60s (which are well-documented, particularly by the reissue programme on Evidence) or the late '80s and early '90s (covered well, not least.

Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra Visits Planet Earth is a jazz album by the American musician Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra. Recorded between late 1956 and 1958, the album was originally released on Ra's own Saturn label in 1966, and has since been reissued on CD by Evidence in 1992. In keeping with many Saturn releases, one side features cuts from the arkestra . 958, whilst the other side comes from the 1956 sessions originally intended for Sound of Joy but still unreleased in 1966.

Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra Visits Planet Earth è un album discografico del musicista jazz statunitense Sun Ra e della sua Solar Arkestra. Registrato tra la fine del 1956 ed il 1958, l'album venne originariamente pubblicato dalla El Saturn Records nel 1966.

Even "Space Is the Place," probably the best-known track on the album, is not the better-known version from the album of the same name, but an excellent take from The Other Side of the Sun. Even if you have heard many of these tunes, you probably haven't heard them sound this good before. These masters come from the Sun Ra Archive, where Michael D.
