Sun Ra and the Arkestra / Myrons Ballroom, Los Angeles / April 1981
AS POSTED ON DIME HERE
This was Sun Ra's first show in 10 years in L.A...the last one, the notorius JP Whidney high school show from 71 where he put a curse on the city after someone pulled the plug on his show!... that one, incidentaly, I uploaded, from known gen., many moons ago.
This again comes from the hard to find, and overpriced (IMO) bootleg on Transparancy.
interesting that this audience tape never surfaced before...
here is the complete show as presented on that boot set.
-to my ears,having listened to MANY, MANY RA shows, it seems that maybe disc 3 should be disc 2...They always END the sets with "travel the spaceways etc" , or maybe the tape ran out before the end of the second (presumably) set...i am presenting it the way i got it...
*NOTE: File names have been "standardized"...sorry for the probelems on the last one.
