STARSH!P: Special [Sun Ra - Brother From Another Planet]

THE ANCESTORS - There were many musical pioneers who came before US [Opx. & the U.S.S. Seraph M- 4026]; here's a documentary on one of the greatest "Afronaughts" who came before Earth Wind & Fire, Afrika Bambaata, BEPs, Dudley Perkins, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Bootsie Collins AND Sly Stone, just to name a few. 

SUN RA was one such artist/musician who shocked and soothed then again shocked the world with his vanguard "Arkestra", other- worldly wardrobe and mannerisms and border- stretching musical style. This, a BBC documentary and a great watch [note: Mighty Boosh fans should watch as well]!
