Format: Audio CD
An awesome extended release of "Space Probe" expanding the original album from three tracks to eight though I doubt many people, myself included, have heard the rare 1974 Saturn original. The 17 minute title track is an early experiment with the Moog synthesizer and finds Sun Ra in full flow creating a pulsating, Shuddering soundscape that suggests futuristic alien landscapes, craft and machinery. Like a kind of musical science fiction only limited by the listeners imagination. The other two tracks making up the original album were unused pieces from earlier recordings however, like a lot of Arkestra material, they manage to evoke a futuristic feel and seem very ancient and mystical at the same time. "New" extra previously unissued tracks fit in well with the overall tone of the album and feature some interesting vocals by Thea Barbara on two tracks.
This album is an absolute treat for Sun Ra fans.

Album title is apt; the music is probing, searching. Only the title track is electronic, an exploration of the moog, in it's early stage. Incoherent or free improvisation - a matter of taste. Interesting, anyway. Muscially I prefer the other tracks, sparse and mimalistic, acoustic duets between Ra's piano and various other instruments. Very listenable improvised "chamber music" . The music is different from the massive collective improvisations om Sun Ra's other records from this period (for example "Live in London 70", warmly recommended!). This CD is, though atypical, a very good complement if you are interested in the trips of the Solar Arkestra; not hard on the ears. Recording quality is good.

Great first track and some throwaway fluff 9 Jun. 2013
By Chet Fakir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first track Space Probe is Ra on unaccompanied Moog Synthesizer and what a journey he takes you on, albeit a long one. Bleeps, bloops, crazed single note lines and textural motifs clash, bang and blast like few other works in the Ra canon. I found it fascinating but others might use it to clear a bar at closing time or a wedding party when it's time to go the !@@# home. In other words, it's savory but for special tastes even among Sun Ra fans.
The second track is quite a let down being a simple percussion track, nothing special at all. In fact it's completely pedestrian and skippable. Primative is a very apt title.

The third track The Conversion Of J.P. starts again with more reverb drenched percussion and is joined by Marshall Allen on flute for some of that exotica sound Ra experimented with in the early sixties/late fifties. It goes along in this vein until about 8 minutes in when Ra joins on piano and Marshall drops out. But this piece never really gets going. Ra's piano is well played but it sounds as though he's just laying down a chordal foundation sounding like a rehearsal recording or a sketch rather than a fully realized piece.

So I found the only worthwhile piece to be the first one. But even though it's 18 minutes long it's not worth the price of the album for one track that may appeal to a limited number of people, a limited number of Sun Ra fans even. I'm a completist and found this album fairly cheaply but if I had to buy it full price I wouldn't. The first track gets four stars, the second gets one and the third gets two. Overall I can't rate this album higher than two stars.
