Notes:
Also known as "The Sun Myth" on some releases, named for the first track.

According to Geerken/Trent's Omniverse, there are three distinct mixes of The Sun Myth:
Version one has African voices very audible throughout and "ESP 1017A 152 DBH" in the runout of side A.
Version two has no voices and "ESP 1017-A ORT-2 DBH" in the side A runout.
Version three as the voices mixed very low, audible at the beginning and end with "ESP 1017A(68) AM967 DBH" in the runout.

Version two seems to have become the standard for later reissues.

This entry should be changed to remove "Green" in the header. There is already a matching entry for a 2015 Green release AND the Notes box here says that this one is supposed to refer to the black vinyl version.

Same as ESP DISK LP/The Heliocentric Worlds Of Sun Ra, Vol. 2
Sound quality is no problem
I listened that it seems to be mastering from the master tape
