Album Notes
\"Released in the early \'90s, Concert for the Comet Kohoutek captures a typically inspired night by Sun Ra & the Intergalactic Space Research Arkestra. Recorded in late 1973, on this date the Arkestra is guided by a musical theme composed around the idea of the Comet Kohoutek, which was passing close to Earth at the time. Typically, the release vaults between cosmic vocal songs that speak of Truth and other such brashly capitalized affairs (such as \"Astro Black\"), almost straight-ahead big-band jazz arrangements (\"Variations of Kohoutek Themes\"), and frighteningly evil free explorations (\"Journey Through the Outer Darkness\").\"-Jesse Jarnow, AMG

Digitally remastered by Joe Phillips with brief liner notes by ESP label founder Bernard Stollman.\"

Recorded live at Town Hall, NYC, on December 22, 1973
