Sun Ra and his Intergalactic Arkestra - Holiday for Soul Dance (1960, rel.1970)

Sun Ra from late 1960...Good stuff, on the whole. Those who look close will see that the band listed on the coverart (Astro-Infinity Arkestra) is different than the one compiled by the discographer. I am inclined to go with the Intergalactic Arkestra....

I'd just like to say that your blog essentially saved my taste in music. I was interested in Sun Ra, and owned several albums, but couldn't quite get into his otherwordly groove. After discovering this page and being able to see the evolution of his music that you've so far displayed, I've gained a whole new appreciation and have actually become far more receptive to quality tunes in general.
