SUN RA in 42 vinyl records of my life

11 Déc

The discography of the Pharaoh is plethoric and sometimes labyrinthine because there are versions of albums and compilations with different covers of the originals but also sometimes with a different tracklist and different versions of some titles. With more than 1000 recorded titles spread over more than 100 albums, Sun Ra was one of the most prolific and talented artists of the 20th century. For novices like my young Padawan and others it seemed important to me to sort them out in the galactic nebula discography of Sun Ra. The discography of Herman Poole Blount begins to speak to me from the mid-60’s and the 70’s are for me his golden age. However, there are still albums on this period that I do not like because it sounds very classical jazz. For example I do not like the album « The Futuristic Sounds Of Sun Ra » released in 1962 at Savoy, another example I do not like the album « sound of joy » released in 1968 at Delmark Records.I like more adventurous albums.I like the cosmic and experimental sounds of Minimoog of Sun Ra. This is his trademark. No other musicians look like Sun Ra. His music has left an indelible mark in the history of music. It represents the past, the present and the future.
