Sun Ra and His Arkestra: Cosmo Sun Connection (Recommended Records)
Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Back in the late 70s and early 80s, Recommeded imported a great number of Saturn Records to Europe. The Arkestra would press them up to order and then I'd collect when I was in New York. We always paid in full and in advance to cover their pressing costs. Then came an occasion when there was nothing to collect; the Arkestra had urgently needed money and ours had been there - so they had spent it. I could hardly be angry - keeping the Arkestra afloat was a miracle at the best of times - but Recommended was also poor and such a loss was not really sustainable for us. In a spirit of generous compromise, Sun Ra gave us, in lieu of the unpressed LPs, the Cosmo Sun Connection mastertape, which we released in a small edition in 1985. This is the first time that this legendary recording has been widely available.

Money from this CD will be given directly to the Arkestra, whose work it is and who gave it to us."- Chris Cutler
