If, like me, you've discovered sun ra through the herbie/miles jazz funk route, then this is a great place to start. Awesome funky grooves but in the unique Sun Ra style, quite different to his other albums (that i've heard so far anyway). Twin stars of thence is unbelievable. I would also recommend sleeping beauty, on jupiter (the first ten minutes of seductive fantasy is absolutely beautiful), cosmos and futuristic sounds. I believe i'm just at the cusp of the Sun Ra journey, but the amazing uniqueness of sound in these albums is just memorising - makes you wonder if he was actually from another planet! Also check out the BBC Four documentary on Sun Ra - amazing.
