Description

More explorations of outer space by the spokesman for the space age !The 1965 sessions that produced the two volumes of Heliocentric Worlds came during the most extremely free-form period of Ra’s career, contemporaneous with The Magic City (Saturn Records). Volume 1, recorded in April with an 11-member band, consisted of seven relatively short tracks (none over eight minutes); recorded in November with an octet, Volume 2, in contrast, was much freer and featured the side-long ""The Sun Myth"" (over 17 minutes in length) and ""Cosmic Chaos"" (14+). The horn players and bassist Ronnie Boykins have plenty of room to stretch out and take full advantage. ""A House of Beauty"" offers five minutes of relatively lyrical respite between the other tracks."
