After a considerable delay, the release of 40 Watt Sun’s debut album is now finally close at hand. This new British band consists of former Warning-front man Patrick Walker (vocals, guitars), drummer Christian Leitch of The River and bassist William Spong, and the two bands named should already give you a good idea of what is to be expected here. For those who bitterly regretted the split-up of Warning, this is not only a gleam of hope on the horizon, it is a sun which actually shines much brighter that 40 watts would allow for. In fact, I believe that no fan of the aforementioned bands could possibly be disappointed by this.

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.
