Atomic! Sun Ra and Frank Sinatra at The Sands, a previously unknown 1966 recording of the Intergalactic Navigator onstage with The Chairman of the Board, was released today in a joint venture by Blue Note and Mobile Fidelity. "We didn't know if it was real when we first found these recordings. Had we been had? Or did we have what we thought we had? Was it really what it was?," Don Was, president of Blue Note, wondered about his first encounter with the material.

This has been circulating for years. Glad to see it getting a general/authorized release.

Too bad it's just the audio, though. I have a very poor-quality VHS of the gig, and it's amazing. What happens when Frank sings "let me see what spring is like on Jupiter & Mars"....whoa.

Maybe the world's not ready yet.

The highlight for me is when Sammy and Dino join for the set ending "We Travel the Spaceways."

I once saw it on 8-Track at a backroad truck stop. Pretty sure Stan Lewis was the source.

The bootleg had some solos that were edited out on the official record.
