Description

(125 Page book + DVD + CD) Harte Recordings is proud to announce the release of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Sun Ra’s Space Is The Place. This limited edition release will include a hardcover book, a DVD of the film with new producer commentary, and a CD of the soundtrack. It was forty years ago when Sun Ra’s galactic-sploitation epic Space Is The Place was released to theaters around the USA. For the first time, Earthlings were able to look into the reality of Sun Ra; jazzman, alien, legend…spaceman. Space Is The Place is a movie beyond explanation, and yet it still remains one of the craziest, psychedelic, music-powered head-twisting fest ever to hit the theaters. NTSC all region, 153 minutes. DVD: Restored versions of both the original cut of Space Is The Place and the uncut version (both with remixed sound by Gary Hobish); New DVD commentary from producer Jim Newman; Sun Ra & Arkestra home movies. BOOK: Essays from screenplay writer Seth Hill and director John Coney; Forward by Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips; Interview with Ray Johnson (who played the Overseer in the film); Comments about the film from Arkestra members Marshall Allen and Danny Thompson; Dozens of never-seen-before photos, taken on and off set during the filming of the movie; Over 40 pages of commentary. CD: Soundtrack with two additional tracks added that were never present on the soundtrack release, but are in the film.
