Corbett vs. Dempsey, the record label, has just released one of the rarest and most historically murky recordings in the massive oeuvre of the great Sun Ra, issuing Continuation on CD for the first time. Last year I wrote about the formalization of the new imprint operated by the John Corbett and Jim Dempsey, the owners of their namesake art gallery, and even then, when I spoke with Corbett about this reissue, the actual date of the recording seemed in doubt. He told me it was from 1964, though for decades most folks thought it was from 1969—it wasn’t released until 1970 on Ra’s own label, Saturn. The sleeve art was rife with incorrect info: it was recorded in New York, not Minneapolis in “Galaxtone,” as the jacked noted, and Danny Thompson isn’t present playing the “Neptunian libflecto,” nor is Robert Barry on “lightning drums,” and it was actually cut in 1963 as part of the same sessions that produced some of the Arkestra’s greatest albums: Other Planes of There, When Sun Comes Out, and When Angels Speak of Love.
