"A classic Saturn experimental studio/rehearsal release, starting with eight delirious minutes of kora and piano frame -- almost certainly the Strange Strings instruments, whatever they were. And then Ra's signature clavinet of the period and an unidentifiable double-reed instrument, probably played by Marshall Allen. Enter the xylophone. I sense you're getting the picture; all in all, 21 great later-1960s minutes. Followed by a lyrical standard with Ra playing acoustic piano and John Gilmore saying what has to be said: a live recording, as is the next. Congas, bongos, Ra on Rocksichord and singing in the Ra-African style. Some fine straight ahead jazz follows -- with serious electric guitar and great tenor playing. And so it goes on, winding up with full-on Space is the Place Angel rant from Ra -- not the best sound, but heartfelt. A fine, eclectic collection with enough gems."
