Sun Ra

The Shadows Cast By Tomorrow


Released: 24th May 2010 | 6 track crossover jazz album
Boldly going where no other label has gone before, we set a course for deep space with The Shadows Cast by Tomorrow, the first collection ever to reissue Sun Ra's 7 inch singles in their original format. We've selected six otherworldly songs from Sun Ra's back catalogue of incredibly rare singles. Originally issued in tiny runs of as few as fifty copies on his own Saturn label, these 45s were often hand distributed by Ra and his legendary Arkestra, meaning that only the most seasoned collectors have ever laid hands on an original Saturn 45. This set of 3 x 45rpm singles pressed onto luminous, glow-in-the-dark vinyl and packaged in a unique, custom-made triple gatefold screen printed sleeve, contains a cross-section of Sun Ra's visionary space-jazz that stretches from the 1950s to the 1970s. Featuring the mystical doo-wop of the Cosmic Rays' 'Dreaming'; wild man Yochannan's RnB solar flare 'The Sun Man Speaks'; the intense moog-rock of 'The Perfect Man' and mega-rare versions of classic Ra rockers 'Love in Outer Space', 'Rocket No. 9' and 'Enlightenment', The Shadows Cast by Tomorrow is an overdue message to Earth straight from Saturn, delivered to you direct by Jazzman Records - all because we dig deeper!
