Kinda surprised I have not seen a post on this but... The recent issue of Utne Reader reports on a 2 CD release of Sun Ra tunes covered by 31 different artists (with the above named title). Musicians include John Tchicai, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, and Harmut Geerken (who plays the "Sun Harp" an altered Ukranian bandura given to him by Le Sun Ra himself), among others. Its out on Rastacan Records in San Leandro, CA. Evidently, the compilation includes several of Ra's poems. Most importantly, the report states that all proceeeds benefit the remaining Arkestra members.
Has anyone picked this up? What's the scoop?
