"Space is the place" where Sun Ra came from. He landed on earth in the early 1950ies and founded his Arkestra with often changing members. They released more than one hundred records, some on Sun Ra's own label "Saturn" (like the LP Continuation). Most of the tracks in this mix are by Sun Ra and his Arkestra. They appeared under various names like Sun Ra And His Astro-Infinity Arkestra, Sun Ra And His Omniverse Jet-Set Arkestra, Sun Ra And His Intergalactic Myth-Science Solar Arkestra, Sun Ra And His Cosmo Love Adventure Arkestra, and so on... Marshal Allen and Kash Killion are still playing in the Sun Ra Arkestra. Phil Cohran and Eugene Easton used to play in the Arkestra, as well as members from The Art Ensemble Of Chicago. The track by Austin Peralta from 2012 is an interpretation of Sun Ra's track from the early 70ies.
