Album Description

Vinyl LP pressing. Although Sun Ra wouldn''t have called Earth home, there were a couple of cities that proved to have considerable significance on him and his music, and Philadelphia was one of the places that he really felt in his element. With the Arkestra HQ based at Marshall Allen''s family home, a period of stability followed that resulted in some of Sun Ra''s most well-loved albums like Lanquidity, Sleeping Beauty, and On Jupiter. With the Foxhole Cafe and WXPN-FM radio studio, there were excellent facilities for Sun Ra to broadcast his music to the world. The vitality you can hear on Antique Blacks is a testament to the unique energy of the community around The Foxhole. From Arkestra sax-man Danny Thompson running the local convenience store, to the small but perfectly formed Philly Jazz label, to knickers being thrown at Ra during a concert at the Foxhole, Philly lit Sun Ra''s creative spark from 1968 right up to the early ''90s.
