Sun Ra BBC



So Much for secrets! This is incredible for an hour-long network documentary!!    They really hit on some greatgreat points!! And they talk to all the right people who still live: Marshall Allen, Luqman Ali, Michael Ray, John Sinclair, Archie Shepp(!!), John Szwed (author of ra's wonderful biography), Thurston whats-his-name, and Amiri Baraka who does a great job at crystalizing it all!!  love it I really dug it.
