Description

In December 1971, Sun Ra made an impromptu trip to Egypt with his Arkestra, his first time in the country. Hosted by drummer Salah Ragab and Goethe Institute’s Hartmut Geerken, they performed hastily arranged concerts at Ballon Theatre in Cairo and at Geerken’s house in Heliopolis. The performances emerged on three LPs released by Ra during the ’70s: ‘Horizon’, ‘Nidhamu’ and ‘Dark Myth Visitation Equation’. These three LPs now receive their first reissue on vinyl alongside two LPs of previously unreleased recordings. Rare photos and extensive new liner notes by Geerken and Paul Griffiths complete a definitive package celebrating Sun Ra’s iconic trip to the Land of Ra. First vinyl reissue + 2xLP previously unreleased material.

This strictly ltd. Package features 12pp 12″-sized booklet featuring new sleeve notes by Hartmut Geerken and Paul Griffiths. All tracks remastered from original reel to reel tapes. Official release in conjunction with Estate Of Sun Ra & part of the delayed RECORD STORE DAY releases.  **WE HAVE 2 ONLY OF THIS LTD. ED. BOX so get in quick!!.
