Sun Ra Arkestra: Audio Series Volume 1:  Live at Myron's Ballroom (Transparency)
Label: Transparency    
Released in: USA    

Reisue of the 2006 Transparency release, an audience recording of a 1981 concert in Los Angeles with a superb 15 piece band. The entire release presents 1984 minutes of music on 3 CDs, with classic cosmic pieces from Sun Ra himsef. The recordings are clear and sharp, definitely not audiophile, but not muffled or indistinct, giving the listener a good opportunity to hear a very full concert from a great period of The Arkestra.
