Sun Ra - Lanquidity (new reissue)
The U.K. Strut label has recently reissued Lanquidity Sun Ra's
legendary 1979 record originally released on the Philly Jazz label.
Through the years the album has become one of the most highly sought after 
Sun Ra albums, partly due to the more accessible aspect of the music. Trumpeter great Eddie Gale is featured throughout. The new reissue contains two totally separate mixes of the music. including some tracks being unedited with longer playing time. we'll be spinning this along with some other Sun Ra related material.

Mike Johnston is the host of 'Destination Out,' which airs each Sunday evening at 11pm. Mike also teaches music history courses at Delta College and Mid Michigan Community College.
