SUN RA'S "DISCIPLINE 27-II" ALBUM RE-ISSUED
Sun Ra's 1972 LP Discipline 27-II Re-Issued For Record Store Day 2017
Strut and Art Yard present a special release for Record Store Day 2017, the first ever official reissue of Sun Ra’s revered Discipline 27-II LP from 1972.
A product of the same sessions that would yield the legendary Space Is the Place LP (Discipline 27-11 has been referred to as its "occult cousin"), the recordings for the album took place on the 19th and 20th of October, 1972 at Streeterville Studios, Chicago, with the largest Arkestra line-up Sun Ra had yet taken into a studio session. The date was produced by Impulse! and Riverside veteran Ed Michel and, for the first time, the Arkestra was recorded in quadraphonic sound.
This first official reissue of Discipline 27-II was prepared in conjunction with Art Yard and Sun Ra LLC. The album is restored from the original master tapes and features complete original artwork and new sleeve notes by Francis Gooding.
The album will be released 22nd April 2017 in conjunction with Record Store Day. Check the Record Store Day site for participating retailers.
