Spin (1/97, p.82) - 8 (out of 10) - "...too uneven to provide the ideal introduction to Ra's omniverse...it's still a treasure trove of mischief, and an inspiring way of mapping the many rings of wound visited by America's most intrepid astral traveler..."Down Beat (1/97, p.44) - 4.5 Stars - (out of 5) - "Prepare yourself: This is one of the major archival projects of the decade....this excursion into Ra's extensive and virtually unkown work as a producer of seven-inch, 45-rpm singles lets listeners in on several heretofore shrouded zones in his seemingly boundless musical omniverse..."Option (11-12/97, p.132) - "...lots of beautifully bizarre nuggets....offbeat even by Sun Ra standards, this is not the place to start for Sun Ra neophytes.
