Via Strut: "Legendary BBC 6Music / Worldwide DJ Gilles Peterson is the UK’s leading tastemaker for jazz-based sounds, and a long-time champion of the music and of Sun Ra. Peterson has handpicked a selection of some of his favorite moments from Sun Ra’s prolific output, compiled on a lovingly curated double-disc selection. It serves as perhaps the best introduction yet to the music of Sun Ra for a whole new generation of converts.
The 2CD version features a flowing mix by Peterson, while the 2LP version (available on limited 180g vinyl via the Strut store) features full-length versions of selected tracks from the mix, as well as the full mixed version on CD.
If you buy either physical format, you will also receive a download code for the full unmixed digital version. The digital bundle includes the full unmixed selection along with Peterson’s mix. Sleeve notes on physical formats come from Gilles Peterson with a full Ra career biography by author Robert L. Campbell.
