Outstanding sound quality, extremely silent (even during extended quiet passages), and my copy is warp free. This is a highly recommended collection!

Amazing packaging and stunning recordings make this Sun Ra compilation a must-have for your collection. The vinyl is clean and has remarkable clarity and depth. It is currently out of print but several are available for reasonable prices on Discogs. This represents a phenomenal value because Sun Ra records are usually prohibitively priced and highly valued by collectors. No disappointments here. The Sun Man delivers.

no doubt this is great collection and introduction to Sun Ra. Though both vinyls are wavy. Not sure if this is general pressing issue or only bad luck.

While perhaps not as helpful of an introduction to Sun Ra as say Greatest Hits - Easy Listening for Intergalactic Travel, this compilation is nonetheless quite ambitious and adventurous. Instead of following the chronological order of the jazz great's career, this album, which is curated by a former bandmate, flows more like a great mix tape. And some of the tracks on here sound better than I've ever heard them before. There's also a beautiful gatefold that is loaded with great information and photos. Also comes with two CD copies of the album. Such a pleasure to see so much care put into a release. Highly recommended.

some people like "best of"-compilations. others don't. while this compilation doesn't officially claims to be one, it will be deemed as such nonetheless, even though it rather should be understood as what it is: a trip in the orbit of Sun Ra.
on this occasion Marshall Allen has done a great job!
