The first disc, Outer Spaceways Incoporated, is Ra's 1968 album for Black Lion, which includes as large as a 15-piece band and much chanting as well as playing. The second, Spaceways, includes excerpts from New York City live sessions during 1966 and 1968, with at least a dozen players on each.
Calling Planet Earth is a marvelous three-CD collection of Sun Ra that includes "Spaceways" (two concerts, recorded in 1966 and 1968), "Calling Planet Earth" (a live show from 1971), and "Outer Spaceways Incorporated" (a studio collection). On all three discs, Sun Ra's spacey, avant-garde jazz orchestrations are exhorted by a willing and musically fanatical big band. A traditional rhythm section, African percussion, June Tyson's expressive singing, and Ra's imaginative work on piano and keyboard electronics augment brass and reed sections.
