"I had the luck to visit Sun Ra Arkestra in Tbilisi Jazz Festival (end of eighties) and was shoked by what i see and listen. It was something that i realized after the concert and this night gave start to my Sun Ra albums collecting.But it's a another story. This is fantastic jazz album, with improvisations, with Heavy Metal Sound, Metallic Riffs and Noise, which is controlled by Virtuosso and Genius Man Sun Ra. I love all compositions especially, "If You Came From Nowhere Here" and "Interstellar Lo-Ways", which end's this show, a great composition from one of the first and excellent Sun Ra's album "Interstellar Lo-Ways" it continius sense of adventure and interstellar drama. Album represents great moments of Sun Ra's creative playing and his thinking, his playing take us on to other-world jorneys and it's something significant what Sun Ra can do. Album full of amazing arrangements and his Arkestra is grate to convey anergy and effective sound that is probably characterised Sun Ra's live shows."
