Man, thought I was the only one that knew this tune. This blog is awesome.

Don’t care much for the new drum parts, tho. I think I read where the old masters were so degraded they had Wackerman redo them. Bleh.

Yeah, I believe they brought him in for the CD remix to augment/replace Bozzio’s tracks.

Well, if we’re strutting in Egypt, I’ll take the real thing, thank you.

Or, you could go for the Sun Ra live version, with totally authentic props and costumes.

I didn’t know that was TB’s playing on this track. Wiki credits both him and Chester on the album. In my memory of the album(which I haven’t heard in decades)I think it sounds more like Chester.

Gonna have to pull this out for a spin. Thanks!

@mr. whipple—You’re likely right about Chester. My liner note memories are pretty stale.
