Notes

1956-'57
First album by Sun Ra and his Arkestra, recorded July 12, 1956 at Universal Recording Studio in Chicago. Produced by Tom Wilson (2) for his short-lived Transition label, the album was released in 1957. A booklet was included filled with poems and musings by Sun Ra dealing with his compositions and techniques

1967
Wilson, moving away from jazz, sold the original tapes to Robert G. Koester who produced the reissue for his Delmark Records label, with a new release title "Sun Song", new artwork by graphic designer Sylvia Abernathy and liner notes by J.B. Figi replacing Ra's precious texts

1990
Delmark first CD release, restoring Sun Ra's original notes as well as including the composition "Swing A Little Taste" from the same session not on the original album, but issued on the 1956-ish Transition sampler Various - Jazz In Transition

Note: from the same session or later, perhaps Nov. 1956, equally produced by Wilson, enough material for a second volume was recorded, but remaining unreleased until 1968, see The Sun Ra Arkestra - Sound Of Joy
