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 includes 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.

Featuring:

DVD
• Restored versions of both the original cut of SPACE IS THE PLACE and the uncut version (both with remixed sound done 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 before present on the soundtrack release, but present in the film
