You continue to have my favorite avatar. If you don't know about Pandora internet radio, you may want to check it out - http://www.pandora.com/ You can set up any number of your own "stations," based on artists, song or genre. My Sun Ra Station has exposed me to some early/middle albums I hadn't heard, although I have maybe 6 LPs and a 15 CDs (tip of iceberg - new ones all the time, from Beyond.)
I was lucky to hear Ra and the Arkestra live a few times, most memorably at the Five Spot in the East Village (where I then lived) in '76 (about). John Gilmore blew the roof off the place with the most incendiary tenor explosion I have ever heard, and the whole troupe (from Spacegirls to Ra himself) snake-danced through a chant finale to "Space Is the Place."
