Sun Ra – The Shadows Cast by Tomorrow

Three “incredibly rare” 7-inches, originally released on Sun Ra‘s own Saturn label in super-low quantities, are now getting reissued in a special box-set from Jazzman Records.

Sun Ra - The Shadows Cast by Tomorrow

“We’ve selected six otherworldly songs from Sun Ra’s back catalogue of incredibly rare singles. Originally issued in tiny runs of as few as fifty copies on his own Saturn label, these 45s were often hand distributed by Ra and his legendary Arkestra, meaning that only the most seasoned collectors have ever laid hands on an original Saturn 45.”

The box-set itself will be limited to 999 hand-numbered copies, each pressed on glow-in-the-dark vinyl. I haven’t seen this offer anywhere but on the Jazzman website, so you better be quick with your order!
