Report: New Unreleased Sun Ra Material Coming in Fall

Music will span 1962-1991

A new series of remastered, reissued and unreleased recordings by Sun Ra will be released this fall, Billboard reports. The article stated that the Manimal Group will press and distribute the new CD and vinyl. The project, said the article, “is being overseen by Irwin Chusid, the administrator for Sun Ra LLC as well as an outsider music expert, author and WFMU DJ, who will issue the music through the LLC’s as-yet-named label.”

“The new releases will be broken down into three categories: a set of recordings from the basement of the Choreographers Workshop, the New York City locale where Sun Ra’s band practiced and recorded between 1962-1965; an exotica collection containing music spanning his recording career from 1956 through 1991; and a set of singles compiled by Anderson,” said the piece.
