Sun Ra - Lanquidity (1978) / Heliocentric Worlds Vol. 1 (1965)

Currently sucked into Sun Ra's expansive space jazz universe. Two shares, a pair of mind-benders. It's astounding that Heliocentric Worlds was recorded in 1965. I don't usually buy the phrase 'ahead of its time', but that applies here in a way--at once of another time, the future notably--and timeless. There, you see, I'm even beginning to sound like Sun Ra.

The sample here should motivate you to get both of these masterpieces...


Apologies. The folder you're about to snatch says Vol. III. It is most certainly Vol. I. Please fix this after you grab... I'll fix when I get a minute.


  1. Thank ya for the "Heliocentric III". "Lanquidity" link is dead though.

  2. Thanks for the album art for Heliocentric Worlds Vol 1! Best one on the internet!

  3. Thanks for the links! Although the second link is in fact "Nothing Is..." from 1966, not Heliocentric Worlds Vol 1
