Sun Ra – Oblique Parallax

Oblique Parallax

Sun RaOblique Parallax El Saturn IX SR 72881 (1982)

A very synth-heavy live set recorded in Detroit circa 1980-81.  This is very reminiscent of Disco 3000 and Media Dreams but with more of a focus on Ra.  Compared to similar recordings this is not exactly top-tier stuff, but it’s still full of good vibes (AND crazy synth noise) for the Ra fan.  “Journey Stars Beyond,” which takes up all of side two, is definitely the highlight.
