Rare Sun Ra material is to be compiled on a new box set.
Strut released a fantastic box set of Sun Ra material back in 2016, piecing together some of the jazz musician's rarest releases.
The second part of this series is due out on May 5th, and once more focusses on extremely rare single releases.
'Sun Ra Singles Vol. 2' starts at 1962 and runs all the way through to the composer's death, encompassing numerous stylistic shifts in the process.
The package features feature remastered tracks, rare photos, original 45 artwork, Chris Trent sleeve notes and detailed track by track and session notes by Paul Griffiths.
The box set will be available on 3xLP and 10 x seven inch versions, with many singles reissued on 45 for the first time since their original release and presented in their original label artwork.
Prepared in conjunction with Sun Ra LLC, you can order 'Sun Ra Singles Vol. 2' HERE.
Meanwhile, Sun Ra's Arkestra will bring their cosmic jazz to London this summer, playing three dates at the Jazz Cafe between June 21st - 23rd.
