Sun Ra and His Intergalactic Solar Research Arkestra: Helsinki 1971 (Transparency)
Label: Transparency    
Released in: USA    

"This is the 20th Sun Ra release from Transparency and possibly the verybest. A complete 2 1/2-hour concert showcasing all dimensions of the group: free jazz, psychedelic, the beautiful vocals of June Tyson and a one-way ticket into space with several astounding Sun Ra synthesizer solos. The bonus DVD is a short interview with Sun Ra filmed the same day as the concert broadcast, aired only once on Finnish television and never seen since... until now. The concert and interview are licensed from YLE - The Finnish Broadcasting Company. This is an absolute MUST-HAVE!"-Transparency

DVD: NTSC, Retion Free, 4:3 (720x480); Dolby Audio
