<<<Radio Aardvark Special>>> Sun Ra Centenary Part 2 - 1970 Onwards....

Playing tracks by

Sun Ra (From "Space Is The Place" [Blue Thumb LP] 1972), Sun Ra & His Arkestra (From "Stay Awake" 1988), Sun Ra (From "Discipline 27-II" 1972), Sun Ra (From "Space Is The Place"[Soundtrack] 1972), Sun Ra (Short version, from a 7" white label 1982) and more.

In the 70s as the band expanded & added female singer/dancers, Sun Ra's palette also extended to include synthesizers.

The band became more of a touring band, often playing and recording in Europe. Many of the albums were live from now on, and as the decade progressed, Ra wished to give audiences a but of a musical history lesson with mammoth sets lasting many hours and including covers of old swing classics as well Ra's compositions.

Some of the records from the late 70s also showed an influence from jazz-funk and disco. Though controversial at the time amongst purists, they are now recognised as being amongst Ra's greatest works.

All tunes sourced from Mr. Aardvark's vinyl collection.
