"A deluxe reissue in a new O-card pack from the Unheard Music Series -- released in conjunction with El Saturn Records. '...all this considered, Strange Strings, the culmination of all Sun Ra's string studies, is without doubt one of Sun Ra's master works. Strange Strings, standing squarely alongside Sun Ra's other epics of the mid-1960s, Atlantis and Magic City, absolutely shines as his most painterly of expositions in its surface richness and play with deep space and coloration. He has offered no world more strange than this in his entire output as a composer and orchestrator. These explorations are only hinted at in scattered moments on other recordings from this period. The full exercise of his very original and very imaginative powers as musical adventurer and visionary bursts forth in the masterful cosmic clattering of Strange Strings." --Hal Rammel, 2006
