Anyone interested in Sun Ra Should check out June/July 1975 issue of Coda magazine as there is a long article on Sun Ra followed by a separate long article on John Gilmore. They go over each album in depth.

Can there be another person like Sun Ra dead or alive, [EVER]. This artist was so unique who can you compare him to.
I would say he created his own industry and identity. I find him complex and hard to understand but some of his tracks are truly amazing, He should rated with the best.
When i watched Ken Burn's ''Jazz' I never saw/heard any mention of Sun RA what a disgrace.
