Along Came Ra - The Lost Arkestra Series part 1 - Stardust From Tomorrow Opportunity

Has anyone heard "The Lost Arkestra Series part 1"?!  I just can't get enough of it.  Only 3 tunes but man O man are they nice!  My only regret is that there is no discographical info about the recordings.  Does anyone know anything about these performances?


The 10" LP opens with a superb version of Along Came Ra - kind of a mini-sermon or tiny declamation.  I've transcribed it below.  Ra's words are in ALL CAPS and the Arkestra's chorus is in (abc).


Along Came Ra

When the world was in darkness (darkness!) and darkness was ignorance
Along Came Ra (along came ra!)
[x6]

The living myth (The living myth)
The living myth (The living myth)

The living mystery (Mystery!)

The living myth (The living myth)
The living myth (The living myth)
The living mystery (Mystery!) (Mystery!)

The living myth (The living myth)
The living myth (The living myth)

The living mystery

I AM RA - THE LIVING SIMPLICITY OF AN ANGEL VISITING PLANET EARTH

The living myth (The living myth)
The living myth (The living myth)
The living mystery (Mystery!) (Mystery!) (Mystery!)


IF I TOLD YOU I'M FROM OUTER SPACE
YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE A WORD I SAID, WOULD YOU?
WHY SHOULD YOU? (Why should you?) 
YOU'VE LOST YOUR WAY. (You've lost your way.)
YOU SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO SAY (You should have nothing to say)


The living myth (The living myth)
The living myth (The living myth)
The living mystery (Mystery!) (Mystery!)

YOU LOST YOUR CELESTIAL RIGHTS
YOU CAN'T GO TO JUPITER.  YOU CAN'T EVEN GO TO MARS

YOU CAN'T GO TO ANY OTHER OF THE PLANETS AND OUT IN THE STARS
YOU'VE LOST YOUR HEAVENLY RIGHTS
YOU'RE CHAINED AND BOUND TO PLANET EARTH
(chained and bound) (chained and bound) (chained and bound) (chained and bound) (chained and bound) (chained and bound) (chained and bound)


YOU'RE CHILDREN OF THE SUN (Children of the sun)
CHILDREN OF THE SUN (Children of the sun)
EACH AND EVERYONE (Each and everyone)
IS A CHILD OF THE SUN (Is a child of the sun)
[x3]

EACH AND EVERYONE (Each and everyone)

IS A CHILD OF THE SUN (Is a child of the sun)

YOU'RE CHILDREN OF THE SUN (Children of the sun)
CHILDREN OF THE SUN (Children of the sun)
EACH AND EVERYONE (Each and everyone)
