Evidence Records' Singles collection was the first inkling for many that Sun Ra had rehearsed and led vocal groups during his Chicago phase. Now Atavistic is shedding considerably more light on the subject with the release of Spaceship Lullabya collection of rehearsals Ra held with Sun Ra - Spaceship Lullaby Nu-Soundsthe Lintels, and the Cosmic Rays.
The Lintels sound like a considerably less professional group, and it is unknown whether Ra worked with them beyond this session.
There's another set with the Nu-Sounds and just Ra on piano, but the best is probably saved for last with the Cosmic Rays rehearsing with the full Arkestra. There's a bit more distortion on these tracks the rest sound remarkably good for home rehearsalsbut it's worth hearing if only for the vocal version of "Africa," which appeared on Nubians of Plutonia.
There are some flaws in the tapes, but given the rarity of this material, that's a minor quibble. Sun Ra fans will be thrilled that this material exists at all to be heard, and the chance to hear Sun Ra giving directions is like a peek behind the curtain.
