RECORD STORE DAY 2020 RELEASE - AUGUST 29TH DROP
5LP Box Set

In December 1971, Sun Ra made an impromptu trip to Egypt with his Arkestra, his first time in the country.Hosted by drummer Salah Ragab and Goethe Institute's Hartmut Geerken, they performed hastily arranged concerts at Ballon Theatre in Cairo and at Geerken's house in Heliopolis.The performances emerged on three LPs released by Ra during the '70s: 'Horizon', 'Nidhamu' and 'Dark Myth Visitation Equation'.These three LPs now receive their first reissue on vinyl alongside 2 LPs of previously unreleased recordings.Rare photos and extensive new liner notes by Geerken and Paul Griffiths complete a definitive package celebrating Sun Ra's iconic trip to the Land of Ra.
