Sun Ra: Janus

We’d like to wish a very happy birthday to the late, great Sun Ra . The jazz legend arrived on Earth exactly 104 years ago today! We’re also thrilled to announce that our remastered version of Janus, first released on color vinyl for Record Store Day 2017, will be widely available on black vinyl beginning June 29th. You can pre-order a copy and pick up our other Sun Ra releases here.

 

 

Janus is a compilation of rare material from Sun Ra and his Arkestra, drawing from tapes recorded between 1963 and 1970, taken from both live and studio performances. The space-age jazz shaman conjures up a variety of styles and moods along the way. The album has been remastered, and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas in Germany.
