A Very Sun Ra Xmas

We love Christmas music. We especially love the track, “It’s Christmas Time,” by Sun Ra’s early doo-wop group The Qualities. We first were made aware of the track via Yo La Tengo’s lovely rendition on their 2002 EP, Merry Christmas from Yo La Tengo.

The image of Sun Ra is from the Sun Ra Picture Archive, a totally radical site. And you should go there. And you should download these songs. And you should listen to them. And bring good cheer to all your friends and neighbors.
