These two discs from Sun Ra and his Solar Myth Arkestra are not, as their title suggests, parts of a singular or continuous work. They were initially issued as two separate titles – similar to the two-part Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra – by the Belgian BYG Actuel label in 1971. Both volumes consist of mid-fidelity and primarily self-realized and -produced recordings. Despite the claim that these sides were taped in New York City at Sun Studios, Ra discographer Robert L. Campbell notes that by the time these tracks were documented, the Arkestra had ended its N.Y.C. residency and returned to Philadelphia.
La-La Land Records, WEA and Warner Bros. proudly present the remastered and expanded, limited edition 2-CD set of John Williams’ Academy Award Nominated original score to the 1987 feature film EMPIRE OF THE SUN, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Christian Bale, John Malkovich and Miranda Richardson. Heralded as one of the acclaimed composer’s finest works, Mr. Williams’ masterful orchestral score seeks no less than the openness of the human heart, mind and soul – the perfect compliment to this powerful and indelible film about a young English boy’s emotional and physical struggle to survive the Japanese occupation of China during WWII. This deluxe re-issue was produced, assembled and mastered by Mike Matessino in cooperation with John Williams, Steven Spielberg and the film’s co-producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall.

Sun Electric is the German duo of Tom Thiel and Max Loderbauer currently on hiatus, but resurrected every so often in each decade so far, starting from the early 90's. 30.7.94 Live was recorded at the Tripping on Sunshine Ambient festival in Ørstedsparken, Copenhagen, Denmark and pressed on CD in 1995 directly from the original DAT masters. That's the reason why you won't hear crowd noise or backcoupling at all - in fact, the audio quality is magnificent and you cannot distinguish this live album from any of their other studio albums sound-wise, despite the hint given in its title, of course. The purity and incredible warmth are still mind-blowing to this very day, making the album a timeless classic.
