Sun Ra- Marie C. Couvent Elementary New Orleans, La. 5/5/89

In honor of the Sun Ra Centennial today, i posted the complete as i have it Sun Ra Arkestra as they appeared live and direct atcha at the Marie C. Couvent Elementary school in the upper 9th Ward New Orleans on May 5, 1989 at the above YouTube link. This is the complete transfer from my off the master video tape provided by my good buddy Roddy C, MANY thanks to him. There are flaws in this video but they are short and watch-thru-able.  Total running time is about 47minutes as one long set.  Retransfer was done by John and Chris at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette involving having to reseat the tape into a new cassette, then transfer to digital. Thanks to them also.

This was my first Sun Ra show played before an audience of a hundred or so kids and at least an equal number of larger kids. You may have seen excerpts from this show on other YouTube channels, props to those folks for putting it out there to begin with. Those were done from my copy so consider this the closest to master copy out there. Enjoy. We Travel The Spaceways......................................
