Recorded at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia, the recording represents the continuation of a heartfelt rebirth of the Arkestra under Allen's guidance since Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, gaining new generations of followers from their regular touring across the globe. Tracks include arrangements of Arkestra staples 'Angels and Demons at Play', 'Satellites Are Spinning', 'Door of the Cosmos' and 'Rocket No. 9' alongside lesser known gems; the rousing blues 'Darkness' is recorded here for the first time, resurrected from the Ra archives by Marshall Allen. Other highlights include an epic version of 'Seductive Fantasy' (first recorded on Ra's 'On Jupiter' LP in 1979), the freeform sonic blast of 'Infinity/I'll Wait For You' and a first ever recording of the Marshall Allen swing composition, 'Swirling'.
