Sun Ra and his Myth Science Arkestra - Angels and Demons at Play (1956-60)
And here is where my love of Sun Ra begins....
From the first track "Tiny Pyramids" to the "Demon's Lullaby", this album is a space odyssey and nothing less. The sound of Tiny Pyramids is unforgettable. When I think of Sun Ra, there are probably three songs I really think of, "Tiny Pyramids" being one of them. Don't miss out on this early Sun Ra...
