Those wondering where to begin when buying their first Sun Ra album, this is it! Since Sun Ra never had any actual hits, the 18 tracks from 15 Sun Ra albums, plus two singles and a soundtrack excerpt, were chosen because they were fan favorites, because they displayed the artist's development over the years 1956–73, and because of their musical accessibility – relatively speaking of course.
Fine works by any standards, the two string quintets on this disc become even more significant in light of the marginal role accorded to chamber music in the flowering of Russian music during the second half of the 19th century. The common goal of many composers of the period was the creation of a national musical idiom based on Russian folk song, and to them chamber music seemed far too abstract as well as too closely associated with German traditions.

French reissue of the German progressive rock act's 1993 album (recorded in 1975). This album is the soundtrack of a little known movie released by Philippe Garrel in the seventies.
