Recorded at the Sun Ra house in Philadelphia. “Sun Ra capitalized on The Arkestra’s communal living situation by having them practise at all hours, waking them up to play arrangements and tunes that he never called on the bandstand. The tape recorder ran nearly the whole time…and the stash of unissued material is so deep that solid collections like The Intergalactic Thing are still coming out nearly a quarter of a century after Ra’s demise…’" Bill Meyer "The Wire"
