Sun Ra - The Soul Vibrations of Man

Here's another original Sun Ra El Saturn album - a really good one, musically. The Soul Vibrations of Man was one of two Ra albums recorded live at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago in November, 1977. (The other was Taking a Chance on Chances). My copy came in a plain black sleeve, although other copies were issued in a conventional sleeve with cover art. Much of side one features a flute duet, and the rest of the album is a nice mix of composition and improvisation. Recording and pressing quality is of the usual indifferent Saturn quality. But what a great album!
