Abstract:

This two-disc collection of Sun Ra-related 45s and alternate takes took over three years to compile. It contains every Saturn single that we know to exist as of August, 1996, that did not appaear on an album, with the exception of four sides by Walt Dunn which would not fit on these two CDs and on which Sun Ra does not play. Often pressed in lots of 50, these singles, recorded between 1954 and 1982, represent the "Holy Grail" among Sun Ra collectors, and have never appeared on LP or CD. The 36-page booklet contains liner notes written by four of the universe's leading Ra experts, as well as detailed discographical information and rare photos.
