Interplanetary Remixes: WFMU Reinterprets the Music of Sun Ra

Regular price $15.00

WFMU DJs remix and reinterpret the music of the legendary Sun Ra. The CD contains 19 tracks.

Review by Max Level of KFJC: "WFMU put their own spin on Sun Ra’s music with a wide variety of results. He is a good candidate for remixing because that loose space shuffle of his always seems to have plenty of room in it for just about anything: skronky saxophones, June Tyson’s distinctive vocals, odd dialogue and spoken word passages, doo-wop, Batman clips, some droning things… His spirit and energy pervade these tracks no matter what WFMU’s intrepid remixers came up with. Obviously a labor of love, the music mutated but with respect for the original, and I think Sun Ra would have appreciated it."
